2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say - I am disappointed. Admittedly you get a lot of trees for your money (20) but I would rather have half the quantity and better quality. They certainly add colour to my layout but I have only used about 8 because they are so poorly made. The trunks and branches are of brittle black plastic with coloured foliage attached, quite a bit of which had either fallen off or was not there in the first place. Because of this it was necessary to find the best side with the most foliage. Additionally a few of the trees were bent, but as the plastic was so brittle, they couldn't be straightened which made them unuseable. It also meant you couldn't open the branches up for a more realistic look. As I write, my wife has just looked at the railway. "They look a bit naff" she said "Put the green ones back". Enough said!

For the price, I thought if they are no good they are cheap enough to ditch. Well what a surprise. Sure, if you get a magnifying glass for extremely close inspection, they leave something to be desired. But at a normal viewing distance they are perfect. There is a mixture of people walking, standing and sitting. Quite a few even have walking sticks. They also match up perfectly with Noch and Langley figures, also available from Amazon. Some of the workmen need their bags painting a different colour to their uniform (yellow), but that is my only criticism. Whilst they don't have 'peg' bases (like the Langley model figures), they stand/sit quite easily with a little dab of glue. All in all - exceptional value and reasonable quality.

Noch 14608 Reed Landscape Modelling

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed, 20 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The illustration on Amazon is of the front of the box giving the impression the reeds are similar to the WWS 'clumps of grass'. i.e. ready formed with adhesive backing. In truth they are on 2 sheets of coloured, laser cut flimsy paper requiring you to break them out and shape. Even then, I can't envisage them looking anything like the illustration. All in all I am extremely disappointed because most other Noch products are of a very high quality.

Having run out of the light green meadow, I decided to risk the darker rough meadow effect. How pleased I am. It is very easy to apply ('paint' the area with PVA glue, sprinkle on using a teaspoon, tap down and when dry, spray with a very weak PVA solution containing a squirt of rinse aid). When dry, any bare patches can be re-done.
It can also be mixed with brown scatter to make more interesting effects.
The photo really doesn't do it justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars OK if you have the space., 18 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Metcalfe kits are extremely well made with a lot of detail and this kit is no exception. It took the best part of a day to assemble and, if I am honest, I was a little shocked at how much space it took up. At one stage I even considered not using it, however on passing a local flour mill situated on the river bank, I noticed some loading doors for barges and, by coincidence, a houseboat moored opposite. An idea was born. There are 3 buildings and you can put them in any configuration so I removed one of the loading platforms from one of the buildings and, hey presto, I have a canalside wharfe. The trees, lights and other building in the photo were all purchased via Amazon (with gift certificates). Unfortunately the barge wasn't available but I found that via a sponsored link.

Having purchased 4 styles of tree via Amazon for my N scale railway, I have to agree with my family that these are by far the best. The trees in the first two sets arrived 'flat' and had to be rearranged to make them look anything like half decent. I then purchased a set by Noch which just didn't look realistic and were sent back. Eventually I came across these at half the (Noch) price and twice the quantity. I was of the opinion that if they were no good, at this price it wasn't a great loss. Delivery was quick and the trees were already perfectly formed. All they required was a small hole to attach them to the baseboard. Unlike the first 2 sets, the trunks are plastic and could possibly be improved by the manufacturer using a darker brown but you can always paint them. However, once in situ, unless you are looking straight on, you can't see them. The two earlier styles of tree can be seen to the left of the photo. (Most items in the photo were purchased via Amazon).

BQLZR White 1:150 N Scale Train Layout Model Lamppost Lamp Double-End Pack of 10

5.0 out of 5 stars Suitable for N Scale Railways, 18 Feb. 2017

I am already using a Victorian style single head column for my (N scale) railway but needed something a little brighter for the sidings. These fit the bill perfectly being the equivalent to a 10m column and, by their design, giving a lot more light per lantern head. I also needed a single bracket version and, as I had a few left over, I cut off one arm with a craft knife. However, it wasn't possible to remove the unwanted wiring so I just connected both sets of wires as per the twin. I painted the columns to the colour I wanted and they looked fine until the lights were switched on when you could see the brush marks on the heads so, if you do need to paint, make sure you use at least 2 coats! One photo shows both the twin column and a modified column. The other is self explanatory.

I bought this as a replacement for my original cover which was on its' last legs.
Not only was this one cheaper, it is better quality and comes complete with a stylus, screen protector and cleaning cloth.
The colour is great too.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sundeala Board is excellent for model railway baseboards as it allows easy insertion of track pins. Admittedly it is expensive but makes the job of laying/altering track very easy. The supplier also deserves more than 5 stars. The goods were ordered on 21/11 with a delivery estimate of 2/12 to 10/12. The goods actually arrived on 24th November, extremely well packaged (unlike a previous supplier I had used) and was even supplied with fixings. Highly recommended. Photos show the Sundeala board in the first and last stages of model making.
