When you follow the do-it-yourself method for creating miniature scenery, you will get better freedom to design exactly what your dream project should look like. If you are planning to create a prototype of your favorite railway in your little town, it will be highly tough and even impossible to find a ready-made model that can match the buildings and other sceneries exactly. On the other hand, when you make them on your own, you will get complete freedom to create the scene that you are dreaming about.
