N Scale Large Modern Houses

#1

Post by andruec »

One of the areas of my layout is supposed to be half a dozen large 'CEO/Banker/Captain of Industry' type modern housing. Faux Georgian, double garage six bedroom kind of thing. I haven't been able to find anything suitable. The closest I've found is a farmhouse but it would need painting and other modifications which I'd rather not have to do.

Something like this:

The only way to model them is to scratchbuild them.

Have you thought about a Faller kit? For example:

This might be the sort of thing some nouveau riche type might build for themselves?
