Today there’s another terrain review. I know that a lof of the readers here prefer painted minis (naturally!) I still have a lot of terrain to review here, especially given that when I was looking at purchasing these items myself there was little to nothing out there on many (most!) of them besides the box pics and official glamour shots. So it’s like a public service.
Inside the retail box, we once again have a fitted polystyrene tray for the three main of this set.
…and when removed and opened up, we also have the two buffer stops hidden neatly away inside the building sections.
Once “assembled” we have the switching tower – which I know Kuribo will love based on his own posting history – and the two stops.
Reverse shot for completeness. I don’t have any 1:100 scale rail at this point, so I’ll just use the buffer stops as general storage of coal/rocks/etc – probably butted up against a building.
Inside, we can fit a standard medium-sized infantry stand in each of the floors. No surprise there!
And finally the scale shot with some armour. As mentioned, I don’t own any railway stuff to scale, but I figure this building can also work well as a pretty generic one aside a factory, or a square of whatever type with an industrial-ish looking building next to it.
As always, I purchased this set from a retailer with my own moneys and have no incentive to say anything good, bad or ugly about them. I quite like this one – it has a nice inherent variety to it with the two floors being different colours and a different outer construction but still feels cohesive. Likewise, I also like the appearance of the roofing, which has a feel of both sheetmetal and asbestos(!) to it, again complimenting the industrial feel and the variety in the one piece. Like all of these sets, it could/would benefit from some easy weathering and some (more tedious) painting of the interior’s featureless black walls. It’s another one I can see getting done in the short-to-medium term, but even without it, this set was relatively inexpensive and while possibly not your first purchase, it’s still one I can recommend if you’re looking to add to an existing collection of 15mm/1:100 buildings.
