Sorry Dave but one for you to avoid , but in case others are interested, is the Scalescenes model. It is fantastic in detail and sturdy when finished However it is much bigger than the Metcalfe one.

Tomix produce some reasonably priced churches - I have bought one. Need to get them from Plaza as no UK supplier (to my knowledge). 1:150 scale

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Church-A2-Tomytec-Building-Collection-050-2-1-150-N-scale-/200796233442?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item2ec0635ee2  (I have this one but in red brick)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Church-C-Tomytec-Building-Collection-052-1-150-N-scale-/360444897140?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item53ec30a774

Thanks but not sure these would look right as i'm looking for an old english type church like the Lyddle end St Andrews or Holy trinity would any of the lilliput lane stuff suit?

In general churches are pretty big buildings. However, you have a few options.

If the Kestral one is the size you want but not detailed enough then you could add some details - it ought to be quite easy.

Or you could actually cut down the Metcalfe one to the size you want. Being cardboard they are easy to adapt and alter.

Finally, apart from looking at other kits and RTP churches, you  could scratch build one - again it's not difficult. Take a photo of one you like, or google up some images, and use the pic as a basis/blueprint.

Graham Farish used to do a card kit that you could buy to add to their magnum layout.
Although several years old, you could still pick one up on eBay.

I've got the S&D Mouldings church, which I love! It's cast in a plaster like material, but really paints up well. I am considering drilling out the windows and replacing them with laser cut or etched ones so I can light the building. S&D make some nicely dilapidated cottages too. If you find a website for them, please let me know, as I've had to buy my buildings as I see them at toy fairs, etc.

Like like you think the kestrel church is great size, I tried Lyddle End, but Holy Trinity is way too large over the kestrel kits so sold them on as being over scale for my Kestrel based Layout ;) go for Lilliput Lane
