About Me

I mainly model the late LMS / early British Railways period (LMR) in 2mm Finescale.

A layout based around Healey Dell viaduct and Broadley station on the Rochdale to Bacup branch is (still!) in the planning stages.

I seem to spend most of my modelling time at the moment building locomotives.

 

Locomotive Projects I am currently working on:

  • Hunslet 16" 0-6-0ST (from reduced Judith Edge Kits etches) - construction thread
  • LMS 0-6-0 Diesel shunter (from the 2mm Scale Association kit) - Featured in Model Railway Journal 278 / 279
  • LMS Jubilee 4-6-0 (PECO body with replacement etched Nigel Hunt chassis)
  • LMS Fowler 4-6-4T (from the Nigel Hunt kit - for which I wrote the instructions)
  • ex-LMS Princess Royal 4-6-2 (from the Nigel Hunt Kit) - Currently in the point shop

 

A selection of completed (or nearly completed) models:
