Re: [Z_Scale] Marklin cast structures (different question)
- Hello Murray,
I have a set of those things that I can sell you. I attempted to paint them
but they came out pretty ugly. They are way out of scale
(too small, more like 1/300 scale than 1/220).
On the other hand, Miller Engineering makes a very large "Downtown"
series: banks, movie theaters, brownstone houses, Victorian houses,
Gazebos, Hardware Stores, Delis, etc. etc. that are all photo-etched brass.
These structures are very charming. They are to scale and are highly
detailed; go to http://www.microstru.com
Folks need to know that there are a great many manufacturers of
detailed, accurate structures and accessories for Z scale that are far
easier to build than one might think.
P.S. I have no business association with Chris Miller. He is a great
friend and competitor. His work in model railroading needs to be recognized.
