The 2mm Calendar

New edition of "Track - How it Works and How to Model it" - the definitive book on prototype and model track construction. The 2nd edition is revised to reflect the new techniques and products that have appeared in the decade since first publication. Available to non-members from the Association's online shop.

Expo 2mm 2024 will be held in Derby on Saturday 11th May 2024.
More details are 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.
