Hi. Yes - I know that I should be Scratch Building for my Hornby Model Railway in OO and that would be very good for my well being - though I could not resist purchasing two ready-made buildings from the Hornby SKALEDALE Range.
To the Right is shown the Hornby GREEN HOUSE. I chose to purchase this finished model as I needed a small Green House for my proposed model of the 'Seymour Farm'- being a small acreage holding I felt that Mr & Mrs Seymour would have a smallish Green House. The Hornby model is super and suits the purpose being very well detailed and it should look great on the landscaped gardens of the 'Seymour Farm'.
I am certainly glad to have this Hornby Platform Signal Box model as it is just superb- I've also found that as a model it certainly helps to get my eye-in for 1/76th scale modelling....viewing and measuring details such as the brickwork, timber cladding and slate roofing certainly should allow me to make such features on my own models more accurate to suit the scale for 'OO'.
I have been painting more Ian Langley OO figures this afternoon - with finish applied in satin lacquer to be done tomorrow- well pleased with the Langley figures which I hope to show you at a latter date.
Well that is about it for to-night.
Until next time.
