Vintage Cardboard Store

Fourth in our vintage 1940s set of cardboard buildings is a combination Meat Market and Grocery Store. This was the only building in the set not to have its original roof so I ended up making one  from the scan of another project. This whole set oozes of charm and really says small town USA. It measures 4 5/8" (11.7cm) W x  2" (5.1cm) D x 2 3/8" (6cm) H. Enjoy!

The walls were too long to fit on one scan


  1. Almost like a small German store Schatz!

  2. how do we download the paper template i need it ??? please

    1. There is no template, sorry. I can take photos and scan the parts but I'm afraid the one thing I haven't figured out yet is how to take those and turn them into templates for models. I use Microsoft Picture Manager to straighten, crop, and adjust the colors but it doesn't scale the images. If anyone out there can throw me a clue please do because I'd like to learn the process. Right now simply 'right-click' and save the photo/scan to your computer and manipulate it with whatever software you're comfortable with.
