The kits look great are they easy to get the results it the pictures i'm not sure i have the skill to make them look good.

Is it printed on paper then stuck to card? as it looks they have a thickness to walls doors etc.

They can all be printed and then stuck to card for printing out,but I print as much as I can directly onto card.You could always try one of the free downloads to see what they're like to build. It's not as if a lot of money has been spent if you decide to buy one of the models.

Just my personal observations.......
It's easy to rush and make mistakes.
Don't use the recommended card thicknesses for N gauge,just use half the 00 gauge thicknesses instead.
They look more lived in than the Metcalfe models but are somewhat more labour intensive and slower to make.
They are more robust than you might think.
They don't need painting.
They can be a bit addictive. ;D

 ;D

Agree with that.  I've bought and made some of these even though I have no use for some of them.  So simple and such a relaxing pleasure to make. 

Related to this, I really hope that glue merchant will be at the n gauge show again this year.  I learned more about adhesives talking to them for ten minutes than in the previous thirty odd years.  One of the glues I picked up is perfect for the scalescenes kits.

Normal PVA dries a bit rubbery,the Gorilla wood glue and IIRC the aliphatic type glue somewhat more solid and stiffer.
Just look if it says sandable on the bottle.

There's nothing wrong with ordinary PVA,it's just that I prefer the Gorilla wood glue.
