Now i have dabbled in most major scales and never really found anything i am happy with i came close when i used to model American HO, This time last year i spent a number of weeks out in New zealand and was taken with their railways and Scenery. the locomotives are truly huge but lend themselves to modelling and being equally impressive. fast forward into recent months i have been focused on my 00 collection and again unsatisfied with what can be done with proprietery stock.
A recent advertisement for some NZR locomotives in 1:64th scale posed the thought that in the UK Modelling such a prototype is very different from what is seen at shows and a Ab 4-6-2 Pacific and a Ja 4-8-2 arrived in kit form from a fellow modeller in the south these are progressively being built but they will need a layout to run on.
Plans are afoot for something around 10'x2' and portable for occasional exhibition once a few more items of stock have been procured from NZ and wherever else i can source them
