West Gate Paper Model



Easy to build: This paper model kit is easy to assemble, requiring just cardstock paper sheets to print on (110 lb. or 199gsm recommended), scissors, hobby knife, paper glue, aluminum ruler and cutting mat. It may look complicated, but every part of the West Gate is simple to assemble on its own, and putting it together is just a matter of building up the simple shapes into the complete structure you see here. Because this is such a large model, assembly time is about two hours.

15mm to 30mm scale: This model is designed at the popular 28mm-30mm gaming scale, and can be shrunk down to 15mm, 20mm or 25mm scales by simply adjusting the print size percentage on your printer. Tips and advice for altering the scale are included with this kit.

Multi-layered PDFs: The West Gate features multiple texture layers, putting you in control over the final look of your model before you print. If you like, you can print several versions of this model and scatter them around your gaming table, and each model can have a distinct look.

You get all of these texture options:

  • Gray stone walls
  • Red stone walls
  • Wood upper walls
  • Heavy weathering
  • Optional window and door positions
  • 3 types of roof tiles
  • And much more!

Ready to print: For your printing convenience, this model also includes a full set of single-layered PDFs that are easy to print right away.

Software requirements: You'll need Adobe Reader to get full use of these layered PDFs.

Dimensions: The West Gate has an L-shaped footprint of 10.2" x 5.1" along its longest edges. Its height is 9.25", not including the chimneys.

I have over forty of his models and this is absolutely one of my favorites to put together. It has a lot of small parts so it can be a little time consuming and i'd say about in the middle in terms of difficulty. [...]

Was an interesting build partly due to me. Once assembled I realized I had not stuck the balcony on straight. My errors apart the kit was easy to assemble and looks good with the others I have purchased. [...]

I really thought this was going to get all 5 stars. It was just when I got to the last few stages, I noticed some design flaws. The way Mr. Graffam does layers is AMAZING! You can customize your models so much that it is like you are building it [...]

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.
