“ Brand: Hornby / Buildings: Churches „
My son's fascination with all things railway developed quickly into a love of all things model railway: surely this is one of the joys of being a Dad!
As a child, my model railway collection did not extend beyond a simple oval of track, a locomotive and few trucks. This 00 Gauge Skaledale Collection Church is just one example of the fantastic range of products produced by Hornby. Whilst it won't necessarily form the centrepiece of a layout, it does provide a very useful addition to layouts of all sizes and eras: since churches of this kind have been around for so long, it is at home equally in a steam-era or modern-era layouts.
The product benefits from the usual Hornby features: it is well designed, manufactured, painted and finished. The relief features are also particularly well presented on this church, something that cannot be said about some other Hornby buildings products.
As for child friendliness, be careful of the fragile parts at the peak of each gable and the spire: I had to glue the latter a couple of times, although this was due to damage by my younger (two year old) son.
