For many of you out there, you already know that most of our textures and kits have been available as instant downloads.  (Because while we have been in the lengthy process of adding them, you have been “finding” them.)  For the rest of you here is the official announcement that all of our current textures, all of our Volumn 1 kits and a couple of NEW kits are available as instant downloads.  (We have eliminated a couple of our items like signs and the like, but they will be back in a better and more organized form soon.)

The process is simple.  Go to either the TEXTURES or MODELS pages.

On the TEXTURE page you will see a bunch of thumbnails.  To get a much bigger view, click on a thumbnail and a new view with “ADD to CART” buttons will appear.  Just click a button to purchase.  You will be directed to your shopping cart and will be given instructions how to check out from there.

On the MODELS page you will see the same pix that you are familiar with, if you have been here before, but you will also see “ADD to CART” buttons, which you click on to purchase.  If you click on the picture, you will be taken to a better view.

Full instructions will be given on how to download the files when you click on an “ADD” button.

We will continue to keep adding new items as fast as we can, so keep watching for new arrivals.  By the way, there are four new textures available now that our Steel Mill customers might like.  Take a look.

A couple of new models

We have had lots of requests for low relief background buildings.  For a while, I hesitated to make them because I was out to prove that card stock models could stand right up front next to the finest wood models.  Well, we proved that a while ago and I have designed a couple “flats” and included them on our disks.  Well, there are a lot more that I had made for my own layout.  There are at least 6 that are ready to go.  Now that we are making kits available as downloads, you will start to see them becoming available in the next few days.  Here are two flats that are ready to go in all 4 scales.  These are computer renderings and are not as dimensional as the real paper kits. Hope you like them.


A great model build from Steve Janninck

Recently Minuteman scale models ran a build contest for one of their great little kits. the runnaway winner was Steve Janninck’s “sky train” model. We are completely flattered that Steve chose to use our car shed model as a basis for the hanger of this great dio.

heres a couple of pix and a link to pix of the build.


Website update from Dave

Hi everyone.  It has come to my notice that some of you have been patiently dealing with an “unusual” looking website.  (And probably laughing to yourselves that these clowns really don’t know what they are doing.)  What I mean is that to some of you, pictures and columns of text appear in “different” places than what I see when I’m editing or adding things.  Many items appear shoved over to the right or just generally out of line.  What I found out is that when we constructed the basic bones of this site, we did it on a wide, flat panel, rather than a more traditional monitor.  That means that the ratio of width to height of my display is not necessarily what you may have.  Normally, the computer, monitor & operating system, deal with this and you can’t tell the difference.  That may or may not be what is happening with your display.  I am going to try to modify things on this end so that this website look great to everyone, not just those with wide format screens.  This will take a while since much of the HTML code of the website will have to be replaced.  (And I’m still a novice at doing it.)  We appreciate your patience as we tackle this task.
