We are currently developing a range of models in Gauge 3, these models are not just scaled from our Gauge 1 products but are redesigned to make the most of the possibilities presented by modeling in Gauge 3, Models are produced from works drawings and detailed surveys of surviving models where possible.
All kits are produced from sustainable Finnish Birch ply and timber section, details are produced from engraving laminate and etched brass where appropriate to replicate iron strapping.
Kits are proposed to be offered in various forms.
Scratch Aids: Laser cut timber sections with basic instructions to allow the builder to construct the main body, while they add the detail of their choice, idea if builder wants to produce a special variation of a type.
Body Kits: A kit to build a complete body of a vehicle, with all required materials (excluding paints and transfers) and including sole bar detail where the prototype is wood. The builder will be required to provide running gear, buffers etc based on their own personal preference.
Complete Kit: Complete kits will include all parts and materials (excluding paint and transfers) to build a running gauge 3 wagon.
With our system of manufacture we can provide most variations of wagon diagrams.
