    Iain Rice

    Issue 38 (1990)



    Iain RIce builds two six-coupled engines from the same stable and designed to do substantially the same job.

  • A Simple EM Chassis

    Louis Baycock

    Issue 15 (1987)



    Starting in finer 4mm scale modelling has never been easier, according to MRJ credo. Here, in the context of this EM Special, we've set out to prove it by assigning a 'first step' job to a genuine EM beginner - the Reverend Louis Baycock (Iain Rice's rector and, until recently, an N-gauger). We gave him a small bag of goodies and a lot of encouragement; this is what he brought back.

  • Butley Mills

    Iain Rice

    Issue 9 (1986)



    Iain Rice's little bit of Suffolk in Devon is finished at last. It's taken a while, but, to be fair, he did have to do it all by pushbike! 'The Mills' is an ideal P4 starter - or a useful sharpener for the more experienced.

  • East Suffolk Ramblings

    Iain Rice, Bob Barlow

    Issue 150 (2004)



    In the early 1980s, the East Suffolk ight was the definitive statement of the finescale ethos - which, to a degree, it still is. It looked beautiful, it broke acres of new ground and at times it ran abominably. More to the point, MRJ was born amid its rambling trackage and bleak salt marshes. Twenty-odd years on, Iain Rice explains what the ESLR was all about, while Bob Barlow's captions pick out some of the things that worked brilliantly andothers that didn't.
