Recent releases

Etched windows and building components


4F EasiChas

The latest EasiChas kit, for the Bachmann LMS 4F 0-6-0, covers both Deeley and Fowler tender versions. Detailing kits for each type have also been introduced.

We have EasiChas kits and detailing kits for the Hornby GWR 42xx 2-8-0T and 72xx 2-8-2T, the Bachmann SECR/SR Wainwright Class C 0-6-0 and Bachmann MR/LMS 3F 0-6-0, and for three LNER Pacifics, the Hornby A3, the Bachmann A1 and Hornby A4.

A range of connecting rods and coupling rods for RTR models - complete with working ‘knuckle’ joints and bosses.

Available now for MR/LMS 4Fand 3F, SECR/SR Wainwright Class C, GWR 42xx/72xx, Hall, Grange and Manor and LNER A1, A3 and A4.

Replacement splashers for the Bachmann MR/LMS 4F and 3F 0-6-0s.



Coupling hooks and pockets - £1.50 per etch or 4 for £5

LYR Diagram 43 brake van conversion



Etched windows for scratch-builders and to match the Scalescenes range of buildings - in over 20 different window types, including the Engine Shed and Signalbox, Diesel Depot and Water Tower kits.

All are available in both 4mm and 2mm scale


The next EasiChas kit will be for the Bachmann MR/LMS 1F 0-6-0T and then, probably, the Bachmann LNWR/LMS G2 0-8-0 and after that, or possibly ahead of it, the Hornby GER J15 0-6-0. Although work has started on all of these, we don't yet have projected release dates. The Bachmann LNER A2 4-6-2 is still progressing but has been held up due to a problem around the brake hangers.

We completed the final test etches for the D&S crane conversion kit some time ago and our aim was to have it on sale by the end of 2013, but this has not proved possible and it unlikely to be available until late 2016 at the earliest.

D&S Models 4mm kits

We do not currently have any D&S kits in stock.

We have included many photographs of completed models and these take the form of thumbnail pictures which, when clicked, open out to full size photographs which can be viewed in (sometimes excruciating) close-up. Yes, these are 4mm models !!! We are incorporating more photographs in the form of a gallery for each loco and tender kit, and also pictures of the etches and extracts from the instruction drawings for many of our other products.
