What's new in 2mm scale modelling
A small black and aluminium case containing 81 wagons and 3 coaches was stolen by an opportunist thief on the evening of 15-Oct-2017 whilst a van was being unloaded at the Model Railway Club in London N1. The models were made by the late Bill Blackburn and were on loan to the MRC.

Each item has a conspicuous yellow dot painted on the underside. They are all to 2mm : 1ft fine scale standards. They are superb examples of work in the scale. If you hear anything of these, for example a collection of N gauge wagons being sold, please contact either the 2mm Scale Association or the Model Railway Club in London.

The Farish 64xx Pannier Tank is the latest model to have a drop-in wheel conversion kit. This conversion consists of new bearings, wheels, coupling rods, etc.. and simply drops into the chassis in place of the N gauge wheelset.
A superb running Finescale steam locomotive in ten minutes !

The 2mm Scale Association exists to promote and facilitate modelling at the scale of 2mm:1ft. The scale has a long history as the smallest practical finescale standard.

By joining the Association, members gain access to a wealth of knowledge and our exclusive component range designed to enable simple and accurate construction.

Find out how to get started in 2mm FineScale; with the products available from the 2mm Scale Association its easier than you might think.

Our component ranges include jigs and alignment tools which remove the guesswork and need for specialist measuring equipment from precision model making. We also produce booklets which explain the construction techniques which have been developed over the years.

To keep our members in touch we produce a bi-monthly magazine and newsletter. For those with access to the internet we offer an email list where members can chat about anything pertinent to 2mm model making.

This website contains information about the Association and 2mm standards, articles about model making, and photographs to inspire the model maker.

Someone once said "there's no such think as bad publicity" which sums up our reaction to the featured and simultaneous appearance of Lightermans Yard in both the 2mm Magazine (front cover and inside cover) and full colour spread in the N Gauge Journal (pages 28 and 29). Both unsolicited and a comple ....

Moving home and having all my hobby stuff boxed meant there was no progress for the past couple of months. That's why, once in a while I like to watch again the video clip with the running 'Shay', clip I took on Mark's 'Pizza' during the ESNG exhibition in April this year. ....

A former member of the Midland area group recently donated his box of unfinished projects and other bits and bobs so that the group members could make use of them. I picked out a part built Gresley BG which looked like a nice model which was crying out for someone to finish it. I have a bit of a sof ....

Yesterday I took all of my various Hayle related bits and pieces to the Supermeet/Skills day at Chelford. It was a great day but it's fair to say that I was ready for some sleep by the time I got home again. I got a bunch of my research photos printed by one of the online companies. I h ....
