Post subject:  Our resources used by various tinplaters in OGR forum

An alert reader sent us a link that includes some paper and cardboard buildings made by tinplate modelers using our graphics - exactly what they were meant for.

The link is here:

The round storefront started out as the front of one of our candy box houses from this article:

Here's the original graphic: Image

OGR forum member "Electroliner" put different stuff in the windows and added new signage, but it all looks like it belongs. Great job!

Here's a photo that includes several of our projects from the same link (http://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/topic/let- ... 2452200966)

The graphics for the little station are here:

The graphics for the switch tower are here:

The graphics for the water tower are on this page - scroll down for the alternate graphics.

He definitely printed the water tower graphics a couple times to get enough to make a really big on.

In the back of the photo, there is a grain elevator which uses windows and doors from our Tinplate Textures page:

If you visit the OGRs forum page, you'll see better photos of that:

In a couple cases where we didn't include 1:32 graphics, it looks like the hobbyists were able to blow the 1:48 or 1:64 graphics up enough to make them work.

If folks let me know that they want a larger version of any graphic, I'll try to supply it, so you have the best quality.
