Structure drawings
« on: February 03, 2020, 06:22:59 PM »
I have found a few sites that list some N scale structure drawings, but I wonder where I might find more?

I'm thinking of some specific ones I could use to put some scenes together, like a home workshop, ideally no later than the 50's timeline.

I'd like to try out using thin ply I have for model aircraft, and even get access to a laser cutter to make my own kits.

How thin is the ply? It's going need to be pretty thin in N gauge!

I can get birch ply down to 0.4mm.  Really nice stuff. 
Makes more sense to use wood for wood structures?

Cool!

That's certainly a new scratch building material!

Reminiscent of those craftsmen kits I used to drool over in MR magazine in the eighties. I forget the manufacturer.... Campbell? Walthers?

I know they included components made of wood, plastic, white metal and so on.

I'd certainly be interested in making wood structures from wood!  :thumbsup:
