Different materials available for building structures and ways of choosing, finding, measuring and recording suitable prototypes.

Step by step construction of a cardboard building kit to illustrate the use of basic modelling tools and to explain essential procedures and techniques.

Using and modifying 'out-of-the-box' model buildings and explores the subtleties of making model railway buildings from scratch without the use of a kit, or anything more than hand-tools and a few sheets of suitable material.
