I have used the brick papers  on my layout quite a bit and they don't look to bad, and that's from someone who has always used plasti-card for making buildings

Looking great Marcus. Metcalf buildings are about the best on the market in my opinion, but I did find building a whole street of shops very repetitive.
Good luck with the rest, you've made a stunning start. :thumbsup: :D

Marcus

I bet your layout turns out to be a cracker, the track plan already looks interesting, and with nice flowing curved sections too, you will have to keep posting updates

Thx. I puchased several houses and yes, after making the same building over and over, it does get a tad repetitive, so I started on a corner shop, just to build something different..they look good though  :beers:

While I enjoy doing the scenery and wiring up the layout one thing I can't do is buildings I've tried plastic kits and cardboard but they never look square and the corners always leave a lot to be desired, so all my buildings are Lydle End or the old plaster S D Mouldings so I admire people like you who have the patience to build so many .
Last year at Conway there was a layout can't remember the name and it was covered in Metcalfe buildings it looked great .
By the way how many members are going this year it's going to be a good show again, shame it's only one day but at least on Sunday we are going on the rail trip.
WELL DONE MARCUS FOR YOUR BUILDINGS.

Hi Bob,
I'm a member of the Conwy group and one of our members is prolific at building the Metcalfe kits, he loves them. As well as what you saw on "Nevilleston" we have quite a number of boxes in storage packed with many more of the finished Metcalfe kits all made by this one member.
Whenever I write a letter to someone, I add a footnote briefly explaining Ohm's law. It's my P.S. de resistance.
