Plans and instructions for making locomotive models – standard and narrow gauge steam engines.
Locomotive Model Plans
Carton Built Models
Laser Cut Models
In this page are locomotive model plan books. Each book contains detailed plans and illustrated instructions.
You can use these plan books in different ways.
How To Make Scale Locomotive Models
- 1. Follow the instructions and use the plans as they are and build a 1/25 scale locomotive model in paper or brass.
- 2. Scan the plans and reduce the scale to build a model in OO, HO or TT Scale. Do it in card, paper or brass.
- 3. Scan the plans, reduce the scale and make a 3d version using Sketchup or another CAD program such as the free Qcad software.
- 4. Print the individual parts in 2d to cut out directly or use as a pattern for your photo etch or card.
The detail you get is fantastic.
First here is gallery of images showing the models in this series that are available. They show completed models. Below the gallery is a description of each of the engines shown.
