    When Richard Ellis wrote about 'A Midland Lighter' in MRJ 266, we could see tantalising glimpses of the adjacent yard.

  • Midland Goods Office

    Issue 260 (2018)



    Characterised by careful observation and fine modelling, is this small goods office, the work of Richard Ellis.

  • Midland in Bristol

    Richard Ellis

    Issue 274 (2019)



    When we first saw the work of Richard Ellis we were bowled over. The meticulous composition, attention to detail and exquisite use of colour and texture are sublime, resulting in a model dripping in atmosphere. Richard has discussed the construction of various aspects of the model already in the pages of MRJ and will hopefully contribute further in the future.

    Here he looks at the inspiration behind his award-winning model and the journey upon which it has taken him.
