Model Railway Scenery Review -
Hornby Skaledale Mid-Terraced House (Left and Right) - R8621
What a lovely detailed buildings. This Hornby skaledale terraced
house looks like time has been well spent on ensuring everything
is done to make this building look realistic.
The roof tiles have not all been painted one
colour, some of the tiles have been individually painted a dark
grey or light grey to highlight the individual roof tiles. This
also appears to have been done on the brickwork on all sides of
the building, some are painted or decorated a brighter red. On
each side of the house you will find a drain pipe, all these
little details add to the realistic look.
Although the windows are made from plastic it
only lets the house down when looking up close.
Both the front and back doors have been painted
blue, with the handles and letterbox painted dark brown to add
to the very nicely decorated house and I feel makes them stand
out from the rest of the house.
The only real let down I found personally up
close is the painted white painted windows ledges, but this is
not noticeable at a distance.
I feel that both buildings would look good on any
