The Lineside Coaster
Interest in the rich variety of railway possibilities offered by ports and harbours....... is on the rise. But this throws up new and demanding problems, ... like realising that most sea-going ships are BIG! In 7mm they are VERY big! Brian Self discovered this when he set out to upgrade a model boat kit into a finescale coaster which ended up a yard long.
, A virtual newcomer to scratchbuilding, Peter Booth has built a Welsh Highland 'Russell' to the unusual scale of 8mm / 1ft. This is a magnificent testimonial to what can be achieved with inspiration and correct information.
