HO scale card buildings

Decided to assemble this fold-up card model manufactured by Mirontaine of Bordeaux

The simple but effective instructions

Some of the components

The folds are quite straightforward.

Much easier than origami.

Almost finished

The end product

Unfortunately, it's too small for HO scale.

 
However, I had the components blown up by a local reprographics company by a factor of 1.7.

Holding the original in my right hand.


Obviously, it's going to be a challenge to cut out the components and etch the card where the folds are to go.

Almost finished and I don't have any books in reserve. This chap Webster is a good writer in my opinion, might see what else he has written.
