Here's a better scan of Alphagraphix's Irish n.g. page showing further details.

Add £1 to the price and they'll print them for you in 5.5mm.

Hi folks,

some new products in 3D for 5.5mm scale.

TR Midlander on an MSM chassis, one of Max Brayne's wagons,

and a Corpe 0-6-0 'Cambrai' lookalike from Simon Dawson (rue-d'etropal) for 16.5 on an Electrotren chassis.

Many thanks to Francis Stapleton for the pics.

More of Andrew Wilson's freelance locos, all on the theme of a Kitmaster Italian Tank wedded to Tillig/Berlinerbahn 0-8-0 chassis.

Three locos with greatly varying approaches, and some of the pics show construction details to show you how he did it all.

Andrew's work represents some of the best in 5.5mm scale.

Enjoy!

Andrew Wilson sent me these photos from a few years ago, showing Tom Snook's layout.

Here we see the late Roy Schofield's Welsh Pony, and my L&B Lyn. This latter I acquired many years ago from a friend in the 009 society, so the original maker is unknown.

Looking forward to seeing the 5.5mm gauge society display at Burton tomorrow. Some great modelling in the posts above, especially 'Lyn'.

I could never quite understand why, if you were modelling FR or other 2' gauge prototypes in 12mm gauge, it wasn't 6mm:foot or a handy 1/50 scale? I guess the larger TR 2'3" stuff interfered with that.

Most of the locos are larger than I am using in 014 anyway!

The 5.5mm Association stand at Oxfordshire Narrow Gauge Modellers open day at Steventon today.

George Williamson has revamped the sales stand with some fully finished kits (the erstwhile MSM range) and there's a selection of 5.5mm models to tempt punters into the scale.

Thanks to George for the pic.

More goodies on show at Steventon today with George Williamson's 55thstudios range - the former MSM kits from Malcolm Savage- now in production.

Kelvin White, George Williamson and Noel Adams do the honours.
