We specialise in the manufacture of British Outline ETCHED BRASS locomotive kits in both 'OO' and 'EM' gauges. All kits are designed to the most accurate standards and have detail accessories in TURNED and CAST BRASS, plus others in cast WHITEMETAL. Fully illustrated instructions are supplied plus specific information about the history and detail changes that would have been applied to a class over its lifetime (such as livery changes, or tender changes). A full back up and advice service is operated, giving assistance to the modeller should it be required. If we cannot help over the phone then we ask the customer to send back any part of a kit that is a problem and complete that part for them.

Please note: Wheels, motor and gears etc are not supplied in the kits.

We recommend MARKITS wheels for our kits.

News

15/04/22 - Unfortunately, due to an approximately 30% increase in the cost of etchings, I will now have to raise the price of kits from 01/06/22. I have tried my best to hold off on this, but it is now unavoidable.

Supply issues with buffers have now been mostly resolved.

For payment details, overseas p+p and delivery information please see the method of payment section on the contact us page.
