Cardstock & 'Hybrid' Versions provides comprehensive scaled plans for Model Railroaders and diorama artists. The price of each plan set covers the included scale plans, traceable templates, and generic construction guides for constructing 'scratch built' structures. There are other companies out there that specialize in cardstock models, but our specialty is scale plans for scratchbuilding. However, as avid model builders we have also experimented with cardstock, or paper modelling. To share our enthusiasm for cardstock modeling we have decided to offer a free printable cardstock versions of some, (or most), of our structures. These produce modified versions of our scratch build plans, and often require balsa or styrene parts. We call these 'hybrid' structures. Although we don't charge for the cardstock/hybrid versions, and they are not factored into the price of our plans, they are still subject to our Intellectual Property and License Agreement, are covered by International copyright laws, and are not to be re-distributed. These versions are offered free, 'as-is'. We offer no warranty for these cardstock versions, or our Model Builder Templates files, and reserve the right to discontinue the free inclusion of these files in our plan packages.

If you are purchasing our plan packages in order to recieve the free cardstock versions we hope that you will continue to do so. If you are concerned about whether a particular file contains a carstock or hybrid version you can contact us to make sure. Generally, unless otherwise noted in the catalog description, each plan package does included a cardstock or hybrid version, and several are featured in our catalog descriptions.
