I have looked at these kits before but never tried one. How easy/effective are they?

I'm sticking this in the Equipment Index as I can see all kinds of uses for it.

Hi, Bod,

Go to the Scalescenes site, download the free building and have a go!   In the Gallery section you'll see plenty of examples.
Sol can answer the easy/hard bit, he's done the low relief workshops, and on the site you'll see the bridge abutments he's made too.
It isn't difficult, really.

Doug

Bod, as Doofer says, I have done a couple, the biggest was the North Light Engine shed modified with extra length ,that is now sitting on CraigSR layout together with the tunnel mouth. The Low Relief Warehouse was good, I modified by making it smaller in height & length & I think it came out well. Both the warehouse & tunnel mouth are on the forum.

They do take time as any kit that requires cutting out & glueing but to me , the big advantage of Scalescenes over Metcalfe & Superquik, etc that if you muck a piece & cut it out incorrectly, just print another page.    Of course if your printer is one that allows you to copy & scan, even Metcalfe, etc  can be copied & scanned before starting to assemble so you have more for modifications, etc later.

The warehouse is a freebie - download & try - nothing to lose except paper, ink & time but I am sure you will learn a lot about paper/card modelling. Bob & Doofer have many fine  examples of that aspect of the hobby.

I've always worked with a combination of platicard, brass and DAS clay. I'll give this a go and see what happens. Even if it doesn't work out I'll probably enjoy the experience anyway. Modelling is, after all, what we enjoy.

Hi Ron

Yes but scanners dont get along with things printed with the 4 colour process.  Click here to find out more about the Moire effect.

Cheers

Jim,

Does your scanner support a de-screening filter? That sorts out the chequer pattern effect for me...
