Never been here, not really into railway things if im honest.
I actually build military and cars, but work in a model shop / train store on Sats.
I have been over a while watching what people buy, building wise, lots of cardboard and Hornby, but not a great deal of those Dapol buildings.
I took a couple home, the Engine shed and Bridge as i want to build them and offer them for sale. Now im not a bad modeller and i know i can do a damn good realistic job but the trouble is time taken against what to charge?
both products cost me £5.70 and was looking at about £13 for the bridge and about £19 for the shed. Seen the Hornby shed at about £14 IIRC but would that amount be too high? im talking full weathering detail, added moss / ivy etc up the walls and propper looking wood finnish. Are they based on real things, and what era?
Its more of a hobby, im disabled and not working apart from the Sats, so time thing isnt a issue, as this is why i took up modelling 10 years ago, but would they appeal to non builder?
Also is there any websites that would show actual buildings i can use as referane, like i do for tanks, planes and cars.
thanks and your input would be appriciated.
