    David Measey

    Issue 79 (1995)



    David Measey's plans to model the stations of Launceston came to very little but they did introduce him to the joys of architectural modelling and sidetracked him into recording buildings around his Devon home. Inspired by the book 'Cottage Modelling for Pendon', his structures have so far taken precedence over the railway, but that will come. Meanwhile, his 4mm scale village basks in the sunlight of a bygone age.

    Rodney Hall

    Issue 4 (1985)



    Rodney Hall's layout found its origins several years ago, when, exiled from his native Wales, he found himself in a flat far too small to accommodate the layout which he had been building based on the Brecon and Merthyr Railway station at Rhymney. In order to 'keep his hand in' and to have somewhere to run his stock, he decided to build a particularly compact layout that could be erected and dismantled in a short space of time. Here Rodney describes both the 'why' and the 'wherefore' and some of the techniques employed in the construction of his minimum space layout.

  • Locomotives of Dunwich

    Roy Jackson

    Issue 18 (1987)



    Roy Jackson is the first to admit that his views - and the way he puts them - have not always endeared him to fellow modellers. But his loco building performance on a series of notable layouts, and most recently as CME of the EM triumph 'Dunwich', has always vindicated his somewhat harsh, sometimes hilarious words. Before going on to describe the locomotives of Dunwich in a little more details, Roy, going into print for the first time, provides his 'let's-get-a-few-things-straight' preamble. Some of you may care to hold on to your hats.
