Huts in Hornby Magazine
A real departure for Parkers Guide in this months Hornby Magazine - I'm eshewing rolling stock for model buildings.
The column covers very basic plastic kit construction and to do this I've built a Wills Platelayers hut and a CooperCraft weighbridge. The piece isn't really about the buildings, it's another attempt to persuade anyone who is thinking "I can't make things" that they really can. After all, surely there can't be much simpler a project than a plastic kit hut can there ?
