MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

 


Each year at Christmas time, the Kingsway Models website offers a free to download kit that can be printed and assembled to fill in those odd spare moments of the Christmas holiday period.

An escape from festive TV and relief from tiresome company; by printing off the download (at 100%) and with the aid of some card, glue, sharp knife and ruler; you can create a scale model building.

 If you complete the model and still cannot face the interminable pile of mince pies then you may wish to explore other free to download models from previous years - find them HERE.

You may even wish to buy some of the models from the extensive range that can be found throughout the other pages on the website. Orders can be sent out whenever the post office is open over the Christmas period. 


 MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

This year the Christmas download model is a half relief approximation of Downing Street in London.

It includes numbers 10 and 11 Downing Street which are the official residences of the Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer.

 The central door appears to not be used - in fact in real life the railings continue in front of it. 

 

Close observers will notice that in this era of austerity, certain cutbacks have been made, notably with regard to the railings and decorative lamps. 

I have used some Ratio GWR spear plastic fencing to give a more finished appearance to the model.

 1/76 scale card model of Downing Street from Kingsway Models

The model may be downloaded using the link underneath the picture below. This will download a four page pdf file which must be printed at 100% for a 1/76 scale OO model. Printing at 50% will be fine for N scale.

The first page gives the instructions, and is followed by two pages which need to be glued to thick 1.25mm mounting card. The last sheet should be fixed to 180 gsm card (like a Christmas card).  

 Please do not pass the file to others, but refer them to
