Where do I get Free model railway building downloads?

Free downloads

Looking for free kits? Most download companies offer free kits as samplers. Other ranges are entirely free.

So who has the biggest range of kit downloads?

Wordsworth models has a large range of free downloadable kits. The later kits are more advanced. For example, some have transparent glazing. They can be made from 1mm and 2mm card or cereal packets.

They also have some useful texture sheets.
