Learn how to make model buildings that are meant to live outside, allowing them to change with the seasons and the weather.  Whether you're looking to complement a garden railway, construct a model village, or create a stand-alone structure, Peter Jones will share his expertise to help guide you through the process.

Starting with simple projects, Jones covers the techniques of modelling in concrete, making wooden buildings, modelling in plastic, and roofing, as well as creating some working buildings and more advanced projects.

With nearly 400 photographs demonstrating the included techniques, this book will become an invaluable resource for all of your garden railway model building projects.
