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

14/10/2021 - I'm sad to report that Dave King passed away this morning. He will be missed.

05/08/2021 - Due to the ongoing Covid 19 crisis it would be best to E-Mail me to check if the product you require is in stock. Anything out of stock is not likely to be available in the near future, as many of our suppliers are dealing with large backlogs at the moment. Demand is quite high, so please allow some extra time for delivery.

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