I'm abandoning this scratchbuild.

I built a 5mm foamboard shell but wasn't happy with it. It's just way too thick. I couldn't find any 3mm foamboard locally so I'm changing to 2mm card for the basic shell.

Having recently been to a Model Railway Exhibition where I took a lot more notice than usual of alternative modelling methods and materials, I have decided to change my loco shed plans to using the Scalescenes kit, somewhat extended and modified!

I have very little experience in using card, so I'm learning as I go along.

As this project has now changed to a Scalescenes build, I will put any further posts in the appropriate section and no further posts will appear here.

Yes, I have seen that, Brian. It's one of the things that nudged me in that direction. It looks really good.

Im sure it will be worth you reading some of Dougs (Dooferdogs) threads he has done as you are changing materials for the build Doug is a real expert in that field i have seen some of his buildings in real life and they are stunning.

As your layout is indoors there are no problems using card unlike myself in a shed where damp is a big fear.
