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.

This month's meeting saw a slight dip in attendance ... not due to any virus, but to holiday fever. Most of the group were unaccountably absent.

As we come out of lockdowns and social distancing, and as other restrictions are lifted. Looking back, it was difficult to use this blog as a simple report of our monthly meetings. However, thanks to Zoom we were able to communicate and show progress on projects and keep our spirits up. As we are no ....

"The spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the 2mm chappies is?" So wrote our national barr, Robert de Irn Bru, in his epic poem "To an Easitrak Turnout". Of course, the answer came yesterday, when nine of southern Scotland's finest 2mm modeller chappies (as such all were) wended ....

An update on the work Roy has been carrying out on add-on "town" Boards. The road surface needed to be higher, so the 4mm ply top surface has been elevated on 6mm ply pieces to bring it up to the level of the platform top as shown below. Roy then filled in the gap between the platform and the town ....

From Pete King Guest Editor (thanks for standing in Pete). Always nice to have another viewpoint from within the group.The previous users of the room kindly left out a table and chairs for us to work on but in the end The Yard remained slumbering in its storage area. It was decided that next month w ....
