  • Ken York

    Bob Essery, Mike Peascod, Malcolm Cross

    Issue 20 (1988)


    Ken York, P4 pioneer, Scalefour Society founder member, Scaleforum manager, the power behind 'Heckmondwike' and 'Bodmin', died in October last year at the age of 42. He took his own life for reasons that can only be guessed at. What is known, however, is that his uncompromising modelling ideals and great personal drive combined to make him an unstoppable force for the good of finescale modelling as a whole and 4mm scale in particular. The sum of his achievements add up to far more than a list of layouts, society posts and Scaleforum dates - it spawned, rather, an attitude, an idea that the pursuit of perfection might be an enjoyable and respectable thing to do in an age when standards in all things were generally seen to be in decline. It is an ethic which lives and grows in finescale modelling to this day. Here, some of Ken's friends remember the 'tough cookie' policeman who carried the P4 banner.
