    There is an older book from Model Railroader called "Dollar Car Models" or similar. They used to have a series of articles on building vars that were supposed to cost about a dollar. (That was back when MR was 35 to 50 cents and 50 cents of the Dollar was for trucks and couplings!)

    Rather than books, I'd recommend Scott Mason's three DVDs on Building Craftsman Structure Kits. They are very up-to-date and, honestly, there is really very little difference between scratchbuilding and building today's complex wood kits, so all the same techniques and tricks apply.
