British Railway Modelling (BRM)



Scale Model Scenery has further expanded its range of scenic accessorie­s for the railway modeller. Joining its building kit range this month is a Terraced House/Cottage kit (KX067-OO) and 20ft Portakabin (KX068-OO).

The laser-cut Terraced Cottage can be used on its own or as part of a terrace and is suggested to be the perfect accompanim­ent to its (KX066) OO Period Terraced Shop Kit. The kit is said to be "easy to assemble with the doors and windows being assembled from a series of layers, however, tweezers are recommende­d to handle some of the small parts."

The cottage building is assembled from laser-cut MDF components and has slot and tab constructi­on. A choice of red brick and stone wraps in both left- and right-hand configurat­ion is provided, offering modellers the freedom of which side to site the front door and rear porch. Pre-weathered roof slates are included.

Its 20ft Portakabin kit is based on a typical 20ft design from the 1980s and 1990s, and is suitable for a variety of industrial and lineside scenes, from an office on a busy building site, to a mess room at a wagon repair depot, or the offices of a small second-hand car dealership.

Also joining its range this month is a pack of 58 laser-cut and engraved 1:76 scale gravestone­s for detailing model graveyards and churchyard­s. The items are cut from 1mm greyboard with engraved detailing such as roses, scrolls, crosses and text. The items can be used straight from the pack, or, for best effects, painted and weathered with acrylic paints and weathering powders.
