Free accessories for your models
Here the PITS kit has been extended using free download sheets K101 and K101A which provides interior bus garage walls to match.
These can be added to any of the bus garages. Notice also the garage backscene sheet that has also been used.
The garage backscene gives the impression of a larger building. Above the compact size of the diorama can be seen.

Note that the kits may have three sheets or more including instructions. Check the instructions to see which media the pages should be printed / mounted on - paper, thin card, or thick card.

I usually add a new kit each Christmas. Here you can download the kits from previous years.
The kits are designed for 1/76 scale (OO gauge) to be printed on A4 paper. It may be possible to rescale them.
For example print at 50% for N gauge.
Print at 87% for HO gauge.
Print at 175% for O gauge 1/43 (however the images will 'overflow' onto more than one sheet, and will need to be rejoined - not an easy job)
K201 Two different styles of London Transport bus shelter
K202 An Underground station from a well known BBC soap. The design of the building is very much the BBC's idea of a London Underground station.
K203 A low relief 'Metroland' semi detached house.
K204 Buy your Bostik glue here!
K205 Half relief buildings - solicitor & estate agent.
K206 Rovers Return pub, from the well loved TV soap.
K207 Half relief model of the Buxton post office from which Kingsway Models are posted.
K208 Half relief model of three scruffy city buildings. Two shops with a pub between.
K209 A half relief model of numbers 10 and 11 Downing Street, official residences of the British Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Add Ratio plastic railings for the full effect.
K210 This small building from Muswell Hill has been part of London bus history for nearly a century. It serves as a rest room for bus crews. It might also be useful as a public convenience, or public shelter at the seaside or in a park.
K211 This is the building used as Arkwright's store in the TV comedy series, 'Open All Hours', and 'Still Open All Hours'.
There are three pages of kit parts and a page of instructions
K212 A toliet block that used to stand outside Tottenham Hotspur football stadium.Typical of similar buildings that were once common all over the country, and can fit into any urban scene.
One day, Granville, all this will be y-yours
I often wonder how many of the freebie kits are actually built, and also how well they turn out.
Take a look at this superbly detailed example of Arkwright's shop, that has been built by Dave Scadge from Hull.
Click on the picture and count how many stock items Granville has to set out every morning!
K213 Spiegelhalters jewellers shop stood at 81 Mile End Road. In the 1920s the surrounding properties were bought up and a huge department store, called Wickhams was built. However the Spiegelhalters refused to sell.
This shop is typical of the Victorian era and similar to thousands that were built.
Although free to download kits can be fun, they do require preparation - printing, finding the card, etc. etc.
Take a look at some of the cheaper kits from the regular range below that come all ready prepared for you to cut out and build!
These include the pub and Salvation Arny citadel shown above.
