Price: 10.95

With the dramatic revival of railfreight traffic on our railways comes a corresponding surge in interest in modelling the modern freight wagon as a logical companion to the locomotive. Nigel Burkin has been documenting and modelling freight wagons for as long as he has studied the locomotive.


This guide has been compiled from years of research to offer detailed information about the prototype, modelling technique and projects which pull it all together. Many ready to run favourites get the treatment, whilst the surge in new kits for anything from a bogie to large and complex wagons, add an extra dimension. Advice on materials, tools, kits, base models, detailing and assembly methods is offered in a pragmatic menu style supported by photographs of the prototype, step by step modelling and finished models. An indispensable guide for the active modeller and enthusiast, beginner and expert alike; don’t let it stray far from the modelling table.

Always the most popular aspect of railway modelling, the construction and running of model locomotives is critically described and illustrated in this latest Model Handbook. Tony Wright has a long pedigree in building 4mm locomotives and has been for some time a regular contributor on such matters to the model railway press.


In this book, a whole range of examples are described from the diminutive 0-4-0s to full blown Pacifics, pre-grouping to B.R. Standards. Constructional methods are examined in etched brass, sheet metal, cast metal and resin and include examples of composite kits and modifications. Aided by colleagues to give a wider range of prototypes and liveries, the writer presents a lavish, professionally illustrated selection of locos built from the kits of S.E. Finecast, Coopercraft, D.J.H., Model Loco, Crownline, Alan Gibson, Comet, Pro-Scale, Jamieson, Nu-Cast and many more. The thorny problem of painting, lining and lettering is described by professional model painter Ian Rathbone, though simple painting methods are also considered by the author. All in all, a must for kit lovers everywhere.
