    "File not found" may simply mean the original poster has moved or removed the image. As to Photobucket, see my post #348, above.

    Hi Jeff, thanks for taking an interest! I searched for paper card models and for 18 or 19 pages of posts, most have the image of a cool looking model, like walls, roofs, etc. but superimposed on those images is "Photobucket". I would love to print some of the buildings and try to build some, but I can't. Images with photobucket on them are no good, and when I click on the "good" images, it leads to "file not found". I'm using a Mac pro.

    Thanks! I guess I looked at these card models too late, and didn't get a chance to download them. Oh well, I will press on!

    I made this background in 3 layers using Tomkat's files.
    Will make some more DSCF1891.JPG DSCF1897.JPG DSCF1895.JPG

    Go back to the first page of this thread and look though it. There are a huge number of flats posted. Just copy and save as a jpeg. It does, however look like photobucket has messed up a number of them. You might obtain some of them by taking screen shots.

    Thanks, I have started building some of the models from Scalescenes and they are wonderful! I'll try to post photos when I finish them. It is too bad that most of the pages are either Photobucket, or file not found. Oh well, time to move on...

    Hi, thanks for the comments.
    The files were downloaded by opening them, then right-click and save as...
    This way you miss the Photobucket logo. When you open the picture in a programme liko Paint, you can resize it for your scale.
    I use H0 so a door should be 6'8". In H0 that should be about 23 mm or slightly less than 1". All that is left is printing and cutting the picture.
    Layers are 8 mm or 3/8" apart.
    For some buildings I removed some windows and made a box behind with light and a figure. Since I need about 25'of background, that is to much work for every building.
    These layers were all in the same scale, by making them smaller, you can force the perspective. I made some test prints but am not yet satisfied.

    Ah! Thank you so much!! I have to open the pictures in a new window, which gets rid of photobucket, then "save file as"... Works!! Now I'll be busy for the rest of time. There are some nice free downloads at Scalescenes and modeltrainsoftware.com, and others. But the scalescenes build well, very realistic! Thanks again for your help!
