    Hello pals!

    We are creating a scale town for our RC Cars and are looking to build 1/10 th size buildings. I am asking for help if anyone can think of where to find blueprints or can offer ideas to where to find them.
    Also need ideas for building that would be in the following themes;

    Barn theme
    Prehistoric theme

    Thank you for your help to create this awesome town.

    You of course will have to scale these yourself...but that is easy to do...

    Not sure as you did not specify what time period...but try these...

    and for ideas on overpass/ bridge/ warehouse and the like try
    http://www.victorianrailways.net/infastuct/infastructhome.html

    and then you can try...the railroad sites and start with the guys on here first as they have a wealth of information and are eager to share... I like
    http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/ but you have to sign up, but it is FREE. That ought to keep you busy for awhile....;)

    Finally!! I can reply. Zathros you gave me a site a long time ago for a link to model signs for towns. I can't find the thread but do you remember off the top of your head which it is.

    Also thank you everyone for the sites for the models, but unfortunately they are still too small. 1/10 is what I am looking for to go beside our RC Car. We are making. Scale town.

    Keep up the awesome projects and advice!

    I just went through all your posts, and I cannot find anything other than what's posted here. Any of the buildings you see can be resized either through Photoshop, or within the .pdf. To go that much bigger though, you need Photoshop, maybe even having to re-texture buildings that aren't vectored. You can only know that when you open the file. You will get help here with that if you find buildings that you want, it's easier to work with a specific subject rather than a concept. Choose some buildings, and let's go from there. I'd be glad to help,, as I know others would too. I highly encourage you all to check out these videos Adventure Girl posts. They are awesome, and the filming technique is incredible!! ;)

    If you can't do it on your Mac, get a REAL P.C. :Computer::mooner:

    I'm only joking, I couldn't resist that. I have built P.C.'s, for the last 20 years. I also am willing to help you if you find a building you want and have trouble scaling it up. Just let me know in a P.M. so I don't miss it, and let me know how I can help. I think you videos would great to watch on a T.V. show. Make a little movie, and pitch it, you could end up with a Saturday Morning show, with sponsorship from the companies you get you vehicles and parts from. I believe they are that good. You need a big crashed plane, and you need to mount a rescue. :)

    You have here been here long enough, you're part of the gang. :)

    I have even downloaded a lot of this for the past 10 years or so .. Just in case I get-around-to-it .. I don't even know what I have ..but I saved all the links and still have them on file but to find something? Still takes awhile.. you know you've done it before when your download saves as downloadsuminorother(5).zip;)
