For some time, I have been promising myself that I would get around to buying and making some of these cardboard airfield buildings. They come from Scale Model Scenery at http://www.scalemodelscenery.com/
The system is simple. Choose them, pay for them, download them, print them and build them. They are quite inexpensive and once paid for, one can print them as often as one likes. The sheets of some buildings even come in different layers so one can have, for example, a weathered building, a camouflaged one or a plain brick one. Windows can either be cut out or left as they are. If I want a 'proper' building, I will build one from plastic card and make a decent job of the windows. But I want these as simple airfield settings to display models. For that purpose, they are just perfect. There are more in the series so I will be buying and making more.

They look great, Gerry! I don't have any of the buildings, but they do great display bases and I have several of those! :blob:

I like those buildings, Gerry! :nod:
And a very interesting B&W picture: they look pretty realistic that way.
