MDF Scenery

By | March 16, 2012

While at the WMMC show I found a stand selling MDF scenery, mainly building but also things like walls and carts.  I have been wondering how good these kits were so decided to invest in a 28mm utility cart as I have been looking for one for a while and at £3.60 it was cheap enough.

The kit comes as a small MDF sheet with all the parts looking like they had been drawn on and certainly not easily removeble but I was wrong, the parts just poped out with a little presure and were sitting on my board in no time.  A brief look at the instruction sheet showed how the part clipped together and dry fitting proved that the parts were a tight fit, certainly tight enough to hold themselved together while the glue was going off.  The only part that proved a problem for me was the axle that partialy snapped while I was trying to force it into place (note force!!) if I had been more patient it would have been fine.

The ony other thing is that one assemble it looks too neat, it all has square edges but a little work with a file or modeling knike will sort that.  Overall I was very impressed with the way it was packaged and the easy of assembly, A small house next I think :)
