Our blog

EasiChas for the Hornby J15 0-6-0. Converts the RTR model to EM or P4 with a sprung chassis for the engine and tender. Includes our brass hornblocks - only replacement wheels are needed to complete.

Stephenson Clarke wagon body in resin to fit the RCH 1907 sub-frame.

Private owner wagon sub-frames

Designed to fit under Slaters, Cambrian and Parkside pre- and post-1923 Private Owner 9 foot wheelbase kits and Bachmann and Oxford RTR wagons, these are easy-to-assemble sprung sub-frames. They include full single-sided or independent double-sided brakes, with a choice of brake levers and brake lever guides. They can be built for 00, EM and P4 gauges, and incorporate springing as standard.

We have re-introduced the resin mouldings for the Class 24/25 fuel tanks which have been out of stock for several years and also still have the detail etches.

Etched windows and building components


We have sourced some very fine chain, which we have paired with our coupling hook etches to produce packs to make 3-link couplings (the chain is now available in two sizes). We have also introduced lost wax screw couplings for locomotives. Also new are replacement footsteps for the Bachmann Stanier 2-6-0 and a Replacement front for the Fowler tender which converts it from the later type, fitted with coal doors, to the early type without doors.. The Modified Hall detailing kit improves the front-end of the Bachmann model with correct profile frames and footplating, and a new front plate for the bogie.

We have EasiChas kits and detailing kits for the Bachmann LNWR/LMS G2 0-8-0, the Bachmann MR/LMS 1F 0-6-0T, the Bachmann LMS 4F 0-6-0, 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.




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

A range of connecting rods and coupling rods for RTR models - complete with working ‘knuckle’ joints and bosses. Available for Class 14 'Teddy Bear', MR/LMS 1F, 3F and 4F, LNWR G2, SECR/SR Wainwright Class C, GWR 42xx/72xx, 28xx, Hall, Grange and Manor, 43xx 2-6-0s and 41xx/51xx/61xx 2-6-2Ts and LNER A1, A3 and A4, and 08 diesel shunter.

Martin Finney 4mm scale kits


We now have available all of the former Martin Finney range of 4mm kits - six LSWR/SR locomotives and three tenders, fifteen GWR locomotives and three tenders, four LNER locomotives and four tenders and two LSWR van kits.

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.
