This building paper model is a Lewis Park Station, designed by Howard Lamey and Paul Race. This includes not only a papercraft template, but also includes a tutorial with detailed demonstration of the production and tips.
This is a simple papercraft that was designed to look good with vintage trains. Because this doesn't require a lot of window-frame cutting, the mockup went together pretty fast.
What You Will Need
- Clean solid cardboard, such as from cereal boxes or the backs of writing tablet. I doubled the thickness of the roof to get a more solid appearance, so you might keep that in mind.
- Corrugated cardboard for the station platform and building foundation
- A sharp mat knife or Xacto knife
- Elmer's white Glue-All. A glue stick would also come in handy.
- Several sheets of acid-free white bond paper
- Acrylic paint for the roof and platform. Following the example of American Flyer's Hyde Park Station, I used dark green for the roof and dark gray for the station platform. If you wanted to use dark red for the roof, that would also provide a vintage look, since several similar structures had dark red roofs.
- Access to the Internet and a color printer.
