Update #6

Only a few days left

There was some interest in being able to scale the models so I took the time last night to scale the latest version of the hotel i'm working on down to N scale from HO scale.  N scale is 54.4% of HO scale, so just a little over half the size of it.  I printed this using my Flashforge Finder printer on High quality in 3 pieces with a raft.  Here it is standing next to an earlier version at HO scale.

 I have to say I'm pleased with the amount of detail that held up to the scaling.  There was no cleanup or anything special done except reduce the size and export it to print.  This is also why I design the way I do without putting in overly realistic detail.  I want anyone to be able to print this with an average printer, and not need a $1000 plus printer in order to get the crazy details.  On top of that these models are meant to be painted which means a lot of details will be added via the painting process.  I only wish that I had the skill level to paint these myself.
