Build an awesome High Rise - Model Scenery Tutorial


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response 😉)


If you’ve ever wanted to build an ultra-realistic high rise apartment building then this video is for you! I can’t imagine there’d be many people with such a desire… unless of course you’re a real estate mogul or a model railroader!

For more photos and information on this model as well as links to a lot of the 3D items used on this model you will find them here:

I purchased this model from Custom Model Railroads in the US and I spent a good month putting it together.

It’s laser cut acrylic so all the part fit very precisely and there was very minimal sanding or gap filling required. The model is HO scale but the techniques I used to construct the model could easily be applied to just about any other scale.

A model building like this would look awesome on a model railroad although it will need a few friends beside it to make it blend in a little better and not look so lonely 😉 It’s only a 20 story building but in person it looks surprisingly big! Just imagine what a 90 or 100 story building would look like in HO scale!

The kit isn’t cheap but it sure looks good once it has been assembled and adding extra details just takes it to a whole new level. If you’re wanting to try building with acrylic and do know where to start I can definitely recommend the CMR kits.

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3D printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3D printer files are designed for resin 3D printers, trying to print them using a filament 3D printer may not be possible!

But in any case, I hope you enjoy the extra content.
