I am looking for 20mm buildings found in NW Europe in the WWII time frame. I am new to both War Gaming and Card models, but I am learning quickly. Links to them would be great too. Any help is most appreciated. Jack

You might have difficulty finding 20mm buildings, but Dave Graffam of Dave's Games, www.davesgames.net/, has a Paper Modeling Guide (free) with a table to rescale his 30mm models to various other scales. You can use it, though, for other models. Say, you have an HO building. To determine scaling during print, you need a factor.
To get from 30mm to HO, you multiply by 60%.
In this case we want to go the other direction, so divide by 60%, then multiply by 65% to get to 20mm.
So to go from HO to 20mm, the print scaling is 65/60 or 108%.
There are many models out there. Internet image searches are wonderful for finding suitable models
More or less; you can sometimes just reuse 15mm-scale structures as well, given that in cast minis, scale-creep means many 15mm figures are now really 18mm or larger. Some firms even sell what used to be (1970s) 25mm-scale minis as sufficiently similar to be usable as 15-20mm scale as well now!
For the original query, it's worth checking around online for downloadable railway modelling buildings as well, checking for the 20mm-equivalent there, which is either HO (US and Europe) or OO (Britain) scale.
