Our range of Steam loco kits include Just Like The real Thing designed kits, Ex Malcolm Mitchell designed kits, Eric Underhill designed kits and Ex Chowbent designed kits. Most have been upgraded with a fully detailed resin boiler, some still have the option of an etch rolled type boiler if desired (please check the description). Generally these are traditional etch brass and nickel silver kits with lost wax brass and nickel fittings, some of the smaller tank locos are an ideal introduction to O gauge Modelling, the larger mainline locos do require some previous experience to assemble. All of these locos will require the purchase of a motor gearbox and wheels, generally the Slaters wheel code is noted in the description, there are a myriad of motor gearboxes available from Slaters, ABC gears, MSC, Markits and others, please contact them direct for advice on which motor gearbox is suitable for your loco.
These kits will build into exquisite and collectible examples of model engineering and if built well make sound investment.
