Metcalfe Kits for Christmas

04 February 2011

Metcalfe model mania!

No-one in our impromptu modelling competition had built a kit of this type before so it was going to be interesting to see what they all made of it! The ad team began by choosing the low relief cinema and shops but the Editor spotted a few problems along the way as they struggled to complete it – the first to fall by the wayside! There was a strong contender in Rachael Stothert of the motor home titles who put together a very competently built water tower and sand house, coming a very close second.
Sophie Patten and Keith Gray were late entrants, but got to grips with the Warehouse kit, again making a fair model between them. But the winners were BRM designers Sarah Machin and Katie Phillips with their engine shed kit!

The various kits featured (all suitable for OO layouts) were:

PO213 Two-road brick-built Engine shed £14.75
PO227 Brick-built water tower and sand house £7.40
PO282 Warehouse £13.30
PO206 Low relief cinema and shops £9.20

Available from most model shops or in case of difficulty direct from:
