The building is long, tall and narrow to provide an imposing frontage at the track level. Depth of building is restricted to conform to limitations of space. The main structure is 19" long, 10.5 inches high - without the platform that it will sit on - and 4.5 inches deep. With the staircase to the 2nd story offices and the ticket booth at the opposite end of the building its 22" long. The dispatchers windows/office is on the second floor and overhangs the platform. Except for the chimney pots, small smoke jacks, the stair handrail and the window material its all paper - poster board - backed by 0.10 chip board.
Thanks to Joel Franz for this great O scale Building picture!
old city building
Interlocking Tower, other buildings are not from Model Builder
Great old west town. Buildings made using the layering method. Cut out windows and doors on one copy and put a second uncut copy behind

Here is a project I made with just brickyard. Great software!
"I should have a series of wmf files suitable for import into Model Builder within the next few months. I want to introduce several all at once in that format. Here is a new project that I have done recently by importing a wmf file into MB. It’s a machine shop belonging to the East Broad Top Railroad in Pennsylvania, and should be on our website in July. The roof is one of your rusted metal patterns, and it is actually “corrugated”. I’ll be doing a tutorial on that soon."

Independence Hall: I am attaching some pictures of my attempt to make a model of Independence Hall. It took a lot of time & thought to put this together but your wonderful brick paper & the import feature included in model builder made this possible. I started using matte board reinforced with 1/4 inch balsa wood. I put it together in sections and imported the windows from a web site. I imported the entrance to the building from web pictures of the hall and sized them to fit the building. I can't say enough good things about your model builder. It is fantastic.

As promised, here are some photographs of my first attempt with your program. I am really happy with the outcome. The model was based (loosely) on the photo that I downloaded from Google. I took a hint from John Wiffen’s models for the roof. I extended the tiles downwards by about 1mm for each row. After sticking them into thin card I cut each row separately 1mm above the front edge of the tile. I then stuck each row down separately, starting from the bottom and overlapping by 1mm. This let your “shadows” show but also gave a realistic profile for the tiles. The walls are two layers of card, with the windows on the inner layer and the outer layer cut out to reveal them. I also ‘glazed’ by also printing the widows onto clear plastic and carefully superimposing them. I reckon the whole thing looks pretty authentic, so thanks for your software. I am now free to design a whole village, based on where I used to live in Scotland 45 years ago! Regards, Peter Meadows
"I attached a photo of my first model (0 scale) using your software. It is 99.9% paper accept for the round sign hanging off the front of the building, which is a key chain. I am very happy with the results, and am already designing my second! "
