  • Owd Ratty

    Peter Kazer



    For what he says will be his last layout, Peter Kazer has pulled out all the stops to capture the essence of the original 3ft gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway which closed in 1913. Using a scale of 1/4in to 1 foot, he has scratchbuilt everything and the result is a wonderfully sensitive portrait of the simple and remote terminus at Boot.

  • North Norfolk Buildings

    East of the Wash, but within the coastal area of North Norfolk is where we may find Nunstanton. Trevor Nunn's S Scale model of the supposed station, has, since it first appeared in MRJ 199, deservedly received much critical acclaim, and here he describes how he models the distinctive and varied styles of architecture found within the area.
