Model Railway Scenery Review - Green House
Hornby Skaledale Green House - R8682
pictures of the Skaledale Greenhouse look fabulous but unfortunately the actual
greenhouse I reviewed was a little disappointing when you looked up close.
The green house has two
Firstly, the bricks at the
bottom of the greenhouse starts off as a full brick but ends up
a half brick.
Secondly, there are very
noticeable glue dots on the glass panes and on the glass frame
as a result of gluing the plastic windows in place. I get the
impression that this models production was rushed. If it was not
possible to fit the windows well, Hornby should have left it to
the purchaser. I would rather do it myself than have it done for
me badly and I suspect most other modellers would say the same.
I only hope this gluing problem and the mistake with the bricks
only affects this batch as this model could look fantastic.
The Greenhouse does look good at a distance where the problems
mentioned above can not be easily seen.
I would recommend this model when placed
towards the back of a town scene.
