Free Printable Kits
The following are web sites from which you can download printable kits for free. The kits are in a variety of scales. The downloaded image should be printed on quality card and then assembled using normal card modelling techniques. Each site gives details of the method of download and image types. Some will require an Abobe Acrobat Reader (.PDF files) while others are in JPEG or GIF format and can be printed from a browser. Some are compressed in Zip files and you will require suitable software such as Winzip to expand them.
