Re: How are you all. Can I get some help with Structures
To get a handle on scaling you could go to my website and look in
the Information page to get some charts for conversion.
A rule of thumb is that HO is about 2-1/2 times bigger than Z
scale. More precisely it is 220/87 = 2.5287.
There Z scale rulers as well that Mario mentioned. Nearly
everything I do is scratch built because of the enjoyment I get.
You might take a look at Mircon Art, Micro-Structures, Paper Creek
Models and a growing number of very fine suppliers.
Best of luck,
Tom from Texas

I can get them to be. I have some un-built HO gauge buildings.
Could I put them onto a copy machine plate and just scale them down
to a smaller size then cut out the pieces and strengthen them with a
lot of white glue then use them as templates to cut out pieces of
Plastic Sheeting. Them glue my little masterpieces together.
