Very nice, colours and weight. The barrel is movable.

Certainly looks nice, and for 13.56, not too expensive.

But I would remind more hands-on modellers that there are kits to run up something similar to this for half the price. The Knightwing one for example is 7.99 and very easy to put together.

While I do like the Scenecraft range and have bought a few of their models, the downside is that layouts become a bit generic if they're used too widely. Kits give you a lot more flexibility in terms of colours and optional extras, and for structures as simple as this, even scratch-building is definitely an option.

Cheers, NeMo

Agreed. I am not one for painting so these save me time and effort there. If anyone has one of these on a layout, an in situ shot would be appreciated.

Will see what I can do, I have one on a small photography board, though I did change it a little as the roof is a chunky so I replaced it.

Best wishes
