Mountain Valley Scenery Kit Review – What I like
Like the Subterrain Scenery Kit, this all inclusive kit comes stuffed to the brim with everything you need to completely scenic a 4′ x 8′ layout. To me, this is the best part of buying kits like this, you get all the components you need to build and scenic a predetermined section of HO train layouts. When you combine multiple kits, there’s no guessing how much plaster cloth you might need for a 4′ x 16′ model train layout, you have “premeasured” kits that give you the power to know you can accomplish a specific section of scenicing on your layout. The other thing that is most appealing to veteran modelrailroaders and novices alike, is the easy step-by-step instructions included, as well as the pre-printed plans on the foam base. For the money, and to definitively know what you’re going to need to scenic your size HO train layouts, the Mountain Valley Scenery Kit is the best bang for the buck!
Mountain Valley Scenery Kit Review – What I didn’t like
While the Mountain Valley Scenery Kit is a great way to get started on your HO train layouts, there are a couple of disadvantages some people see in a prepackaged kit like this. For instance, the Hob-e-tac included in this kit weighs in at a paltry 3 ounces. As any modelrailroader will tell you, you can never have enough, so you’ll end up buying a larger bottle for all your various projects on your model train layout. I also don’t like the fact they only include a 16 ounce bottle of Foam Tac Glue, however, a quick trip to the local big box store, or hobby supply outlet will quickly provide you with all you need, and probably a cart-full of other ideas too!
