The 2mm Calendar

The 2022 Annual General Meeting will be on Sunday 18th September. Details of the 2022 model competition will follow shortly.

Other events are described on the Events page.

 

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.

Although we are still finding it hard to get together due the rising cases in Covid, Roy has been busy building up the the terrain with plywood. Below are a couple of images of Roy's latest work.

Welcome to this month's somewhat belated blog, celebrating the gathering of that fine group of folk, the Forth and Clyde Area Group of the 2mm Scale Association, on 11th June. For those regular readers who have been so on edge with the late delivery of this blog posting, I apologise, but real life g ....

Several FCAG members made the journey south to Derby to sample the delights of the 2mmSA Diamond Jubilee exhibition, and we were not disappointed. The standard of modelling on display was very high indeed, but the best part, of course, was the opportunity to ask direct questions of the experts with  ....
