Hi

Was messing about on the computer earlier on and came across this site

http://www.modelrailwaybuildings.com

Seems to have a reasonable choice, cheap prices and also some freebies (appeals to a yorkshireman).

Thought it may be of interest to others

Great potential here, dtose, and many thanks for this link. I've only had a chance to glance at some of the models available, and although they don't match the graphic detail of (say) Scalescenes, or the Evans Model Builder, this would be a very useful resource for middle-distance buildings and background/low relief. I'm going to download a freebie and see how it turns out :thumbs

I have downloaded a couple of N gauge items and they look really good for so little money. The two freebies I have can be repeated as many times as you like of course once you have the original.

Are they a 3D kit guys or just the front face? The pictures on the website are a bit vague.

They are 3D kits, Marty.

I take back what I said. I've just downloaded the (free) HO stable block, and although I'm only looking at it on screen, the printed detail is equal to the Model Builder program that I have. (Actually, I wonder if they .... No, surely not :oops:)

Great little kit. I'm going to make a card model on the first snowy day and find a place for it on the OCR!

No thanks Tim. I didn't realise I had downloaded the N gauge model until it was on my desktop and I had a look at it. It will be interesting to see how your model turns out. As you say the detail is excellent. Another one for the Equipment & Materials Index undoubtably.

Thanks to Dtose for providing the link.

I have just downloaded and printed some of the Industrial buildings, and for covering the backscence they are very good.

Thanks DTose, a very interesting site and it's good to give Scalescenes a little competition.

Yes, Doug - you have to create an account simply to put free items in the shopping cart.

What's a "proper"version of WinZip, Ron - I thought it came preloaded on most computers.

Tim, that is an evaluation version & thus is limited in what it can do. Similar to the Adobe Acrobat reader one can get for free- it reads but cannot create & modify. That said, printers nowdays can scan files & save them in various formats such as PDF.

(From memory, Reg)

Just add it to the cart, and then Check out. Follow the instructions as if you were actually buying something.
