A brief update on the cardstock kits I’ve been working on.
I’ve really enjoyed working with the Metcalfe kits, but because I am standing so close to the structures while shunting I can’t help but notice their folds and overall ‘flat’ texture. They would be perfect if they were set further back on a larger layout, but they aren’t quite what I had imagined in terms of detail.
I plan on keeping the Metcalfe kits, as I will likely use them on a larger expansion. For now, though, I am packing them away in favor of laser-cut and styrene structures. I’m still planning on modelling a brewery, but brewery kits are difficult to come by. I would love to build a Heljan brewery kit, but that model has been off the market for a long time.
A few model railroad supply sites claim to have a few Heljan breweries stock, but upon inquiry they’ve been quick to correct the mistake.
I will be looking into buildings that are suitable for repurposing and/or kitbashing into a brewery, and will report back soon with results.
