    Francis Samish

    Issue 19 (1988)



    We spotted Francis Samish's 4mm Bagnall making a brief 'guest appearance' at the 1987 IMREX exhibition and immediately had it noted as one of the nicest examples of industrial narrow gauge we had seen for some time. Francis was persuaded that some biographical details were in order - and here they are.

    Paul Berntsen

    Compendium 2 (1994)



    Having been bitten by the P4 bug, as confessed in MRJ, Paul Berntsen was tempted to toy with the fangs of an altogether less predictable beast, its very name heavy with implications of risk. So, shockingly unprepared and egged on by his friend Kevin, he stumbled off to one of history's more obscure swamps. This is the mad and irresistible tale of how a New Zealander applied finescale discipline to a 4mm model of a unique English oddity.

    Construction of chain-driven 0-4-0 steam locomotive with flywheel - the original built by Mr Isaac Watt Boulton in the 1860s and recorded in Alfred Rosling Bennett's 1927 book "The Chronicles of Boulton's Sidings".

  • The Amberley Limeworks - a signature model

    Peter Ross

    Issue 250 (2016)



    In New Zealand (total population 4.6 million) railway modellers are a fairly rare breed - especially those who choose to model the 'native' 3ft 6in gauge prototype in SN3½ (3/16 in scale on 16.5mm gauge track). As can be imagined, there is not a lot in the way of commercial support for this scale/gauge combination: a handful of cast and etched kits of variable quality, some very good fittings and components, and not a whiff of anything RTR. As seems often to be the case in such 'adverse' circumstances, the result has been the evolution of a tradition of modelmaking of the very highest quality, of which Peter Ross's portrait of a small lineside industry is a fine example - the more so as everything else on the layout is fully up to the same stunning standard!
