Research/ Inspiration

  • Micro scale" or "dollhouse for your dollhouse" houses and furniture (1:144).
  • N gauge trains (1:160), buildings, and accessories.
  • 1:144 model cars.
  • 10 mm war game figures and terrain.
  • To convert QS plans to Micro scale divide the measurements by 3 or 33.3%. 1mm = 6 inches (or near enough) in 144th scale and it's a handy quick check.
 

 

Example sizes

  • Ceilings should be about 1" tall.
  • Doors will be more than 1/2" tall, proportioned to work with ceiling height.
  • Adult dolls will be about 1/2" tall.
  • Rooms probably won't be more than 1" deep, usually less due to access with low ceilings

 

Tips/Hints

  • Paint two whole peppercorns, put them in bead caps to look like topiaries
  • To hinge a door in 144th to use a long strip of very fine white tulle reinforced with a thin coat of watered down white glue. If you are sparing with the glue you use to fasten it to the door assembly, the strip will add very little to the thickness of the parts, and as the full-strength glue seeps into the holes in the mesh, the hinge is very sturdy once dry and almost invisible. It is next to impossible to use even the smallest metal hinge on 144th house fronts without the hinge ruining the alignment of the front wall when closed, as there is really no extra depth in a 144th wall to recess a hinge plate. Piano hinges can be made from thin copper sheeting and long lace pins, which is an improvement on a purchased hinge, but still too bulky to eliminate gaps at the corners.
  • Untearable Tyvec envelopes can be used for hinges as well.
  • For fencing, look for brass etched sources such as Scale Link. More delicate than laser cut fencing.
  • N scale German and American figures are 1/160 scale which really makes them too small for 1/144 scale houses. The British N scale figures are nearer 1/144. There is a Table Top scale in railroads which is 1/120 scale, perfect for the Baby Houses so many micro miniaturists have.
