More and more downloadable building kits are becoming available and there are now several manufacturers supplying these items. Some of the producers are quite well known, but I’ve been a fan of some of the items produced by a lesser known supplier, modelrailwayscenery.com, for some time. I particularly like the ranges of signs and some of the more unusual line side items. Just launched are some Victorian walls, I’ve downloaded these tonight and intend to use them somewhere on the 300 inch challenge. All the buildings will be constructed from downloadable kits, and I’ve got several Scalescenes items ready to go (more about these in a future blog post).
Victorian wallWhile on the site I came across another new release, a very interesting kit for a Victorian pub.At first glance this looks like the best kit yet from modelrailwayscenery.com. I’ve downloaded it already with a view to customising a little to make it a little more northern (the kit is based on a prototype in Cornwall). I don’t have anywhere in mind to put the completed model, it will end up somewhere on the Rede Valley Railway, it all helps the design process evolve.
Modelrailwayscenery are now making a big thing about their kits using recycled card. Funny, I’ve always used cereal boxes for this type of work. Why spend money unnecessarily when so many materials are available free if you only keep your eyes open? I look out for products in heavier card as well. The family dog is being force fed Bonios these days, they come in fantastic quality boxes!
