Up­scale funk

Model Rail (UK) - - Know Your Stuff -

RTP and kit-built mod­els are hugely pop­u­lar, but if there’s one per­sis­tent bug­bear, it’s that they’re not par­tic­u­larly unique. Yet this is eas­ily reme­died – if you’re pre­pared to get those cre­ative juices flow­ing. You’ll be sur­prised at just how dif­fer­ent a com­mer­cial build­ing can look with a few ex­tra de­tails and a lick of paint. Com­mon al­ter­ations in­clude in­di­vid­ual roof tiles, gut­ter­ing, cur­tains, and even de­tailed in­te­ri­ors. Chris Nevard has re­cently over­hauled Met­calfe’s Boil­er­house & Fac­tory En­trance (PO284), and the dif­fer­ence is noth­ing short of as­tound­ing. See next is­sue for more.
