The one big advantage of the scalescenes kits is that you only print off what you need. When scratchbuilding my buildings I print off diffrent sheets off diffrent kits as required ie. for my station building I used grey brick sheet, floor coverings from the terrice houses and tarmac from the platform kit for the roof.

Hi, Rick,

The site below can be a real help in this respect,

http://www.faststone.org/

By downloading and using Faststone Image Viewer 3.9, you can use the 'Screen Capture' facility to snip out just the bits you need from a screen picture and save it as a jpeg.

Imagine you wanted signs number 3, 23, 45 and 50, you'd simply 'capture' them into a folder and print from there.

Similarly, if you only want the front door from card model you can cut it out, save it to a file and print it from there without the rest of the building.

It also does the very useful [sometimes] job of searching your 'pooter for all image files and sticks them in folders and sets.

Have a try, it also 'uninstalls' very cleanly if necessary.

Good luck,

Doug

I have used the free version for some time now and it does what it says on the box. A good freebie. I'll put it in the Computer software section if I haven't already done so.

PS. I see it's in the Photographic software section. Good.

I'm sure the toughprint paper is good but so it should be !!  At £42 for 100 x A4 sheets, it doesn't come cheap !!

On the other hand,  I usually only buy cheapo printer paper - about 80gm I should think.  What price is quality laser paper ?

Thanks Martin - that's put me in my place !! :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

Presumably,  with the paper,  you'd still need to back it with either card or plasticard so that would add to the cost bringing it closer to the (embossed) plasticard price :roll::roll::roll::roll:

 Those tough 'papers' would be perfect for my layout that cops a lot of humidity! Thanks Martin and Bob.
 I think that IF you could get them on a wide enough roll they might even be suitable for painting backscenes...:hmm That's got me thinking.

An addendum to this thread. It has been noted on another forum & I too found this out.

Wanting to have an inside wall of the North Light engine shed  darker than supplied, trying to print it out with variations & maintaining definition was a tad difficult so I e-mail John Wiffen of Scalescenes & within the day, he e-mailed a specific updated file of the new page at no cost.

 

Just noted on his website, the Low Relief warehouse from the Hornby magazine  ( the one I modified for my Barnstable http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=4005&forum_id=52&page=5    & http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=4447&forum_id=101) is now a freebie

http://scalescenes.com/

 

There is also now a large overall roof  [url=http://www.scalescenes.com/products/R005a-Large-Overall-Roof   to]http://www.scalescenes.com/products/R005a-Large-Overall-Roof   to[/url] go with the large station building  http://www.scalescenes.com/products/R005-Large-Station-Building

Now that overall roof looks interesting............:hmm

I wonder if it could be modified to take clear glazing sheets. :roll:

Hi Peter from my experance with scalescenes John recomends using OHP transparency sheets to print the glazing on so I would have at a guess that the roof kit is the same. :thumbs

Thanks for that Dave :thumbs  It does look like a good and versatile roof structure - maybe it can be butchered for my proposed curved station.

I think I'm going to need a new printer before I can get to grips with the Scalescenes stuff - mine doesn't seem to want to print in the shades I need !!  I've talked about printer problems on here before but have never done anything about it.  Lexmark seems to come as a cheap "kit" with the computer but it eats ink and costs a fortune to re-charge.  I need a black ink cartridge (No 16 for high use) but the price in the supermarket here is close to £40 !!!!

 I use an Epson Peter, with individual inks so you only need to replace the colour that runs out

Thanks for all your advice guys - I'd considered the Epson Kev - it has been reccommended by other members and Bryan - a laser has always been "top of the tree" for me but nowadays, as inkjets are so much better, I'm not too sure the extra costs would be justified.  I'm not "office" type usage - the reason for the "high use" cartridge is that it's not that much dearer than the "standard use" but prints about 3 times the pages !!  The colour cartridge always seems to be either empty or dried up from lack of use (aren't we all :roll::roll:)

Peter

how about that new Kodak printer they keep advertising on the tv

Print and prosper

They claim its far cheaper to run than standard inkjet printers

How good they are i have no idea but may be worth looking

cheers Brian

Peter

Have a look at the site below to see if they sell the ink to fit any new printer before you buy, that way you will have cheaper ink to run your new printer with.

I have always used Epson, and have never had any problems until they die, and with me that about every 18 months.
