• Need Signs For Your Commercial Businesses?

    My credit card just expired recently, so before I decided to throw it away, I decided to put it to use on my layout one last time
    I got a hobby knife and cut out the bank logo -- voila! instant N-scale bank sign! I plan to use one of those Kato 4-story office buildings to be my bank and stick this Wells Fargo logo on top of it.

    I also noticed that other cards, like gift cards can be an excellent source for modern signs. A Starbucks Gift Card, for example, has its logo in roughly the same size, and I believe it's even double-sided! A perfect thing to use if you're modeling a Starbucks on your layout.

      They also make good scratch building material. They are also good for smoothing out roads.

      That's a great use for the family mafioso of banking's card... better than actually using their banking services.
