Scratch building templates

Are you working on getting your NMRA Cars AP Certificate? These templates help with the outline and construction of a flat car base. The flatcar base can then be used to construct many other cars: Gondola's, Box Cars, Tank Cars, Cabooses, etc.

Our HO scale car rolling stock templates are a scratch builder's dream. They allow for correct alignment, sizing and positioning of the sills for building a basic flat car with stakes.  

Each kit comes with complete instructions on how to use the kit with measurements and requirements for scale lumber to build. Note: Scale lumber not included.

The template is for using water soluble glues only. (Wood glue or Elmer's). It is not for building of plastic or styrene models as the template is made of plastic and any CA or epoxy type glue will bond with the template.
