Shotgun House


Finger and Toe Models announces the release of the 28mm pdf model Shotgun House.  It comes in four colors (light blue, yellow, green, and pink) with a lift off roof revealing a detailed interior, and out back every house needs a privy.  This is the classic 19th Century American house built from the East Coast to the Mojave Desert where a lack of both heating and air conditioning made early life only slightly better than miserable.

Often built to accommodate railroad workers following the tracks, the shotgun house became a fixture of the American scene.  In addition to homes, they became small boarding houses, stores, saloons . . . and less salubrious businesses–all spreading out from the railroad tracks to eventually became towns.  Hideouts, secret labs, meeting places–Shotgun House is what you need.  The Shotgun House goes perfectly with Finger and Toe’s Western Hotel, but many still stand in American cities next to high rises and fast food drive-thrus.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Shotgun House, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

One of the most useful models I've come across and one of the easiest to build. The Shotgun House is truly an American classic. These little buildings were seen all over the United States and can still be found today. It is not a great stretch of the [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
