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.

LCBS AN Atlantean bus model in a model bus garage diorama

The garage backscene gives the impression of a larger building.

Left -  the compact size of the diorama can be seen. Remember this is made using just the PITS kit, and then adding freedownloads available from this page. (See below)

The diorama itself is anonymous and thus suitable for any model buses from any fleet.

Odds & ends free to download - click the blue K number

Here are some items that may be useful for adding to some of the kits, or to your own models.
Please do not distribute these files further, but direct your friends to this website.

Downloadable kits - click the blue K number

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.

Download the pdf file by clicking the blue K number.

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)

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.
