What's new in 2mm scale modelling
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.

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.

June 2017 meeting Source: Forth & Clyde Area Group | 13 Jun 2017 | 8:00 am BST
Six of us gathered in Edinburgh for June's get-together. The early morning rain was all to the good: it banished thoughts of healthier outdoor pursuits and gave an excuse for a day's modelling. There was a fair bit of blethering but we also got some work done on Sauchenford, the group's layout.Jim h ....

The layout returned from its Bournmoor expedition in the cars of two of the Group members - which were unfortunately parked some distance from the destination at Wilmington. Many hands made light work, and the parts were rapidly brought inside, then we adjourned for an extended tea break.The basic l ....

A fairly brief but successful visit to the club on the 27th.After my last visit I wasn't able to get to the club for quite a few months. This time I didn't get there as soon as I'd have liked but despite the reduced time available I was able to make progress.Firstly, after removing the cover f ....

With moving house there's been little time for modelling, however I have been getting some done - firstly my Jinty conversion, using the association conversion for the current Farish model, is progressing nicely - indeed all it needs now is painting, renumbering and weathering once I've done a bit m ....

Goods shed progress Source: Anthony Yeates' 2mm Blog | 6 Jun 2017 | 10:09 pm BST
The goods shed was actually the first structure that I started, a few years back now. I recently decided to progress it further, which basically meant adding the roof, doors and windows. It is entirely modelled in styrene, except for the paper strip roof tiles (printed by computer), the brick paper  ....

Here my intention is to show the results of testing the chassis on the track. Unfortunately the videos are reduced in resolution from the original made on Iphone 7.

We don't get out much in the FCAG, so when we heard the 2mmSA was combining the 2017 Expo with the North East Area Group's 35th birthday party, we licked our lips. Not only because of the prospect of a whole day's drooling over other people's models, but because of the catering.First there was lunch ....

A little puzzle for you... On the left is a new tank which has just escaped from the paint shop. ICI supplied chlorine to Hayle in the early years before Ethyl/Octel had their own chlorine works at Ellesmere Port and there was a period during which both Octel and ICI tanks were seen together. ....
