Default cardboard cut out kits

This weekend only Clever models are offering a cardboard cut out kit of a false front store in all scales as a freebie download from
http://clevermodels.squarespace.com/freebies/
While you are there take a look at the rest of the site as they have a range of reasonably priced pretty good looking western style cardboard kits and lots of good construction tips. Sure is a good way to make a start on a township.

The Clever Models printing of these is superb. If assembled as a flat cardstock model, they make good background structures.
However, by printing out two or three sheets of each side and part (these come on a CD) you can then cut out and layer each item. This gives dimension to the model and will rival any craftsman kit. If you want to see cardboard at the ultimate, look at Troels Kirk layout. All self designed cardboard structures.

Can't remember if I saw it here, or somewhere else but I remember an Hungarian site showing cardboard narrow gauge rolling stock, can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance

I can't speak for Hungry but Clever models is planning a complete line of American prototype narrow gage rolling stock and critters in the near future.
It will likely be made available via our web site as a downloadable set of files.

Thanks Thom, I marked your site among my favourites, though it's a bit too much "US" while I'm more european oriented!

I've downloaded a small warehouse from them but haven't got around to doing it. Some of the stuff though is quite extrordinary.
