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.
…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.
