two N scale rural houses is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


Two houses, made from scratch (cardboard + glue + tempera paint + cement).

The prototype was the rural area Romanian houses ( I love these :) )

Things are not yet finished. Left to do :

1. glue the houses. At this moment, if you look carefully, you can see holes under the house body

2. I hate the windows !!! I have tried several times (paper, wood) but I'm not happy at all about the way they look now . They are not at all straight as it should be :( .

Brief :


All the best,

Steve B

I think they look great,,,, I'd be VERY happy to build an N scale house looking that good from scratch

I don't see any problem with them. Straight window cutting in "N" scale, well that's going to take a lot of practice (Bad enough in HO)
They are great looking buildings, hope you'll keep posting more as you complete the scene.
Nice work, wish I could do as good.

Cheers Willis
