Firstly forget about comparing quality. Admittedly I haven't seen a printed item in the flesh but as regards to resin and wh...

Load bearing walls are often found in the middle of older houses with double inglenook fireplaces for a better warmth distribution throughout the house.

The fake chimneys I've seen are indeed GRP with clay brick-slips glued on. Once again the prototype copies the models :lol:

My job for the day was enjoyably spent shunting Blackhall Sidings for which had thankfully given me a deadline to finish off the Gnine wagons I'd had purchased a while back.
