Real Estate Terrain costs too much, as do real buildings in 1:1 scale as well.

I'm hoping to change all that, with "Affordable Real Estate" (Copyright 2017 – Rob Kent), so today, I'm offering some nicely finished cardstock buildings, which I produced for myself in both 1/144th and 1/100th scale, but am making available to you as well.

Photo(s) shown are of the 1/44th scale houses, but the 1/100th scale ones are identical, but just a bit larger.

They are unbuilt kits, printed on high quality cardstock, and are easy to cut out and assemble. They can be assembled quite quickly.

Some say cardstock buildings frequently look better than the commercial, MDF, resin, or even plastic model kits sold by many manufacturers. I tend to agree.

They definitely cost far less to purchase. For the price of one, or a few buildings, you can have a nice set of them for your wargaming table.

Please see the images below for the pre-production models, which I think turned out quite well, if I do say so myself. The production models have gray brick foundations instead of these beige colored ones (shown here), with small black "cutouts" (actually, they're just printed black) for access underneath the homes. The beige colored foundations are available too, if you prefer, with those details as well.

These are small, factory produced German homes like those made from the 1930s to the 1950s and 1960s in Germany, so they're perfect for WWII, and/or Cold War era gaming, and they can be used for both eras. I've done a lot of research on-line, and these are modeled on actual homes from the period.

They're available with either the orange tile roof, and/or brown roof shown, or a mix of each if you'd like.

These are cardstock buildings, with a 40mm x 40mm footprint for the 1/144th scale homes, and a 60mm x 60mm size for the 1/100th scale ones.

They're perfect for your wargaming table, and will provide an affordable option to products produced in other mediums for a much higher price.

$30 USD for a set of 10 x 1/144th scale homes

$30 USD for a set of 6 x 1/100th scale homes

Shipping within the USA is $3.00 USD.

International shipping at cost.

I can take Paypal payments, and/or USPS Money Orders.

Sorry, there are no plans to make these available via PDF, since those files are too easily shared, copied, and/or pirated.

I do ask that you not photocopy and share these with others, and/or even make photocopies for yourself, since I put a considerable amount of work into researching and producing these designs, and others to come. I've tried to make them affordable, but also want to be compensated for my time and effort.

I hope you will appreciate, and honor my request.

Homes arrayed as you can frequently see along suburban roads in Germany (I haven't added bases yet, with detailing for the driveways and yards/bushes frequently seen around these):

Detailed instructions will be provided on how to cut out and assemble them. Contact adhesives (non-water-based glues) are recommended as best for assembling these kits, but with care, even white glue (PVA) works quite well too.

I didn't have any contact glue, so used PVA to assemble all of the models I've produced thus far, with excellent results. The trick is to use the glue very sparingly.

Multiple sets of these are available.
