  • The Scenic Art of George Iliffe Stokes, 1900-1982

    Malcolm Mitchell

    Issue 13 (1987)


    George Iliffe Stokes possessed a remarkable modelling talent - a rich gift for realism that marked him down as one of the hobby's most important figures more than 30 years ago. In modelling, as in the rest of his amazing life, he was an adventurer, an innovator and an 'ideas man'. Malcolm Mitchell, one of our leading kit designers, was an intimate family friend of George and Doris Stokes and has produced this affectionate biography to MRJ's commission. It is the frank story of a man who has a unique place in the growth and refinement of small scale railway modelling. For the first time, Malcolm has made his enormous collection of Stokes' photographs and graphics available for publication.
