  • Modelling British Outline in H0

    Malcolm Carlsson

    Issue 59 (1992)


    Back in the 1920s, when the 'experts' were making such a hash of commercial scales and gauges, Malcolm Carlsson saw 'Half 0' - 3.5mm scale on 16.5mm track - as the simplest, purest and most sensible combination for small scale model railways. Sixty years on, he's still building British outline models in H0 - out of step with most of the rest of us, but in line with the rest of the world! However, whilst most foreign modellers can get their equipment straight off the shelves, building British prototypes in H0 calls for ingenuity, skill and a touch of the old pioneer spirit - in short, the individualistic approach that provides the all-important challenge to British finescallers of every description.

  • The Eye in the Sky

    Charlotte Hill

    Issue 235 (2014)


    The Aerofilms collection, now in the care of English Heritage and Partners, has long been regarded by railway modellers and historians as an invaluable research resource. As well as the wealth of information that can be gleaned form the photographs, some almost 100 years old and of remarkable quality, there is the sheer pleasure of being able to view the subject in much the same way we would a model.

    Here Charlotte Hill, Project Manager for 'Britain from Above', outlines the background to the project, the services available to the modeller and historian, and offers up some samples.
