Buildings???


Recommended Posts

Which do you prefer? The old ceramic/cast style, the new styrene type (MiniArt), the new resin cast ones that seem to be hitting the market, or building your own? I personally enjoy the old ceramic ones as long as they aren't too cracked.

As an armor builder, it's all rubble to me anyway. That said, I like the cast resin buildings...

There's just too much cool stuff in model RR land. The German Kibri brand is pricey, but there's probably no better source of authentic, central European-looking architecture. Being mostly an aero-nut, I've had visions of mounting planes in forced-perspective dioramas over these things in N-scale or HO (not rubble...yet...)!

I like the Styrene models. So much easier to build, paint and weather:

These are just a few I've done. I also have the Waterloo Farmhouse, a store, and inn, a blacksmith shop, a stronghold, some bunkers, and even a KFC.

 

Yeah, nothing like these.

Agreed. The craftsman style RR models are great for super detailing fans. It's also a good way to get a handle on how to design your own buildings.
