Model Railway Scenery Review -
Brocklebank House – R8549
The Brocklebank House looks great. The stonework looks
realistic, and greatly coloured to resemble the age of the property with some of
the colour being faded.
The roof has realistic
tiles, guttering on both sides, but there is no pipe work found like on the
Aswell house for sewage. This time Hornby have created a porch at the front of
the property, which adds a great effect to the oldness of this house, with a
front door but no back door, instead Hornby have added what appears to be a
patio door and two large windows instead.
This model unlike the
Aswell House has two chimneystacks. Both finely detailed. This model also like
the Aswell House has a whole in the bottom for you to have a light put inside
when on your model railway, so that at night the home can light up.
This model like the Aswell House has
poor detailing with regards to the windows areas as you can see the poor
moulding and paintwork undertaken. I am also a little disappointed with the
front door as the windows in the door are painted a light blue which doesn’t
look great compared to the rest of the building.
