Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Have you ever tried scratch building or kit bashing or a combination of both? If you read through my blog you will see I have done both. Kits are great and I have many on my layout built to the manufacture’s design. Kits don’t always fit the space. Kit bashing allows more freedom to fit a building to your space, time period or need. With scratch building you can design what ever you want or build a structure that you can’t find in kit form.
I happen to have copies of 1929 plans for a basic “portable” 18’ x 9’ building. This is a simple structure that could be converted to a tool house, express building, shelter and even a station. All one needed to do was change the window a door configuration, add heat, interior finishes to suit its needs.
For me I took the basic plans and using Mt. Albert scale wood http://www.handlaidtrack.com and made a very much falling apart building with a basic tool shed design.
