Hi ZeroCool,

Welkom bij Armorama !

To be honest, I've never seen any plans to build houses on 1/35, but that sounds like a truly wonderful idea ! Maybe there's an idea for Armorama... !
(Keith ! Do you hear us ? ! :-) :-) :-) )

The best thing to do is draw your own plan. That may sound difficult, but it isn't. Use pictures of a building you'd like to make (there are zillions of building pictures - true and model buildings - on the internet. Then you draw it in 1/35. Putting scale on it is difficult at first, but it becomes easy when you use some practical standards : the measures of a standard door are generally 90 x 210 cm, so you divide those dimensions by 35, and you're on your way.
If you have a practical problem, just drop us a note, and we'll try to help out. There's a few notorious diorama house builders on this website.

There's an [urlhttp://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=70]excellent article by Keith here on Armorama[/url] that can help you get started.

But I like the idea of downloadable 1/35 plans...

I have tried to use such a spray can
but I think the problem is that you cant form it with your brush
and with the stuff from bush you can...
you can form it anyway you like
you can buy it at most stores who sell train stuff
