    Hi 77,
    another suggestion is to take any HO plans you find and
    run 'em through a copier at 136% enlargement. As you
    know the S-scale is 3/16" per foot, so it's not too hard to
    scale down from 1:1. :thumb: Personally, I think S-Scale
    is the perfect size for modeling, but of course I'm not in it :mad:
    I think maybe it's just a "grass is greener" thing :D :D
    This is cool:

    And I'm sure you've seen Robin's very good-looking structure:

    Thanks Fellas. With as many pics as they put on their sites one could almost build them from scratch rather than purchasing them. It sure will be fun to try and build my first scratch built.
