N scale church from scalescenes plans

Over the past week David and I have been working on an n scale model of an English church. We downloaded the plans (which include printable pieces and windows plus really good instructions) from scalescenes.com and have been working our way through it, kit bashing as we go :)

Here's where it stands as of this afternoon:



I wanted a humbler church than the scalescenes version, so I shortened the tower, simplified the ramparts and shortened the building by removing the chancel at the east end.


The download includes printable windows -- I took them to my local UPS store and had them colour copy the file onto transparency film.  They're going to look gorgeous, particularly when the church is lit up!


Look at the detail inside!  No one is going to see it, sadly, but it's there :)


Now it's time to make a whole lot of buttresses :)

Looking at the level of detail included inside these models, I think they would really suit dolls house hobbyists into 1:144 scale - all of Scalescenes models are English n gauge, or 1:148.

  1. Hello nina,
    What a fantastic project. Is allready looks very charming. I hope you will at least be able to see some of the gorgeous interior detail from the windows.
    Big hug,

  4. Wow, that’s cool! Anyway, do you have any plans with the interior? Some mini pews or an altar perhaps? I think it would be more realistic if you add some mini-furniture inside.

  5. That is a very fun project and I enjoyed the posting.

    Quick note to everyone, to covert those 1:148 buildings from that website to output in 1:144 scale set your copier or printer to print at 102.8%
