Small accessories and items which are available from trade suppliers are often of a nondescript design and compromised in scale (to suit both G-scale and 16mm scale).

Apart from availability, there is the matter of cost! A lot of small items are required to decorate even a small area (e.g. a platform) and the cost can soon mount up!

If some of the items (particularly "repetitive" and larger subjects) can be produced from scratch, then substantial savings can be made.

Resin and whitemetal casting is not particularly difficult and many items can be produced in batches.

For more information and examples of the processes see Other Projects.
