    There are a surprising number of castings, etchings and parts available to the S Scale modeller. Some, like the new plastic chairs and Alan Gibson driving wheels, have been sponsored by the society, others have been mastered by individual members. A good example of this self-help approach is the work being undertaken by Maurice Hopper. As a modeller of the London and South Western Railway, he needed a range of outside-framed box vans to run on his layout, so he decided to find out how to master one out of resin. This interested me, so I asked him how this was done. Maurice's enthusiasm for this way of model-making has grown into the Exeter Wagon Works, (www.wagonworks.webeden.co.uk) and here he explains how to go about it.
