    Recently, I saw some realistic paper track and, like a fool, I didn't download it.
    Has anyone here seen some good paper (3D) tracks lately?

    You'd have to be more specific - what vehicle are you referring to?

    There are some very detailed tracks at Fanatyk Kartonu - Modele FK.

    There's a method for making tracks over at Paper Modelers.

    The ultimate tracks are the lasercut ones you can buy from Draf Model (DRAF MODEL - laserowe modelarstwo, modele, akcesoria i dodatki do modeli) or vkoolv's EBay store - not cheap though.

    Regards,

    I believe he means railway track (seeing as this is in rail cars and engines forum) and I remember seeing a nice free track section card model myself a while ago but can't find the link right now.


    Edit: Found it SCHAALBOUW model, Railsection page

    Nice looking track, it almost makes me want to build a train. :D

    THAT'S IT! That's the one I saw.
    You guys are awesome. My wife is a BIG Disneyland fan and I am
    making the Thunder Mountain Railroad set for her and I needed a good
    track to place it on.

    Thanks loads!

    ...We're pretty much lacking free model trains altogether...

    TJ,

    There are a few free loco's at Ray Morris' website, Card Models

    Although, you might have to rescale them to get O guage.

    I don't know about scale, but I know there's free train stuff in Internet finds. You'll need to look around.

    Lex - There's some great 1:45 Loko's/tenders/cars/flats/hoppers/utility/crane models free @ kartonmodell-forum.de. All you have to do is register. The people on this site out of Germany are really a helpful bunch. I've been practicing German in my posts and they've been very patient :eek:) The trains are in German but there are build threads that help a bunch. It's a great site.

    Lex- There's another site - bastelbogen-online.de. It's 1:45 - lots of interesting things. Correction on the other site in my previous post - the scale there is 1:38.

    Jaffro,

    Thanks for the link! I downloaded the track and it's beautiful. I didn't assemble it yet but it looks like a great model.

    All Gauge Model Railroad site has some stuff for trains including some buildings that can be resized to the scale you want. Check it out and see if something could be useful for you. :)

    The card model buildings are around 3/4 of the way down the page. Here is the blurb they have for the card models and the file format they are in:
