How To Make 2 Buildings From One Kit

Attaching buildings to a backdrop is a great way to give the backdrop some depth.

But, the building kits bought from your local hobby shop will almost always be a full building, and you only need half of the building depth.

So, a great way to instantly double the amount of buildings against your backdrop is to cut a building kit in half and place the cut part of the 2 new buildings, side by side, against the backdrop.

This is a great economical way of giving your backdrop some character.

    Hi Dave,
    A quick idea to recycle what we normally throw away; namely the small capsules and sachets containing silicone drying agents to keep medicinal / diet tablets / capsules dry. The capsules are roughly the scaled size of a 44gal drum and the sachets equate transportable bladders. Both can be painted and adorned with N-gauge sized decals if desired. The drum shaped capsules can also be glued end to end to form architectural columns, and I have also used the sachets as ballast in railroad stock by inserting some shotgun pallets.
    Kind regards
    Bruce King

    Another way to double the number of buildings from one kit is to use styrene sheet to form one side and a back for each half and use embossed styrene sheet for one building’s roof. This works where the styrene sheet back and side will not be easily seen (eg hidden by other buildings or trees).
