7MM LOCO KITS

Exhibition quality locomotive kits covering Great Western and Industrial Locomotives

 

LK1 GWR 14xx/48xx

14xx/48xx Tank Locomotive of the type used on most of the Great Western Raiway is the prototype in which we have based our 7mm scale model kit. Designed in 1932 by Mr Collet this delightful little tank engine was to take the place of the old '517; class. Our kits have been researched and modelled on the two Dart Valley railway engines no 1420 and 1450.

 

LK3 GWR 45xx Class Prairie Tank Locomotive

Evolved from the smaller diameter wheeled 44xx that Mr Churchward introduced in 1904, the famous 45xx class 2-6-2 tank engines were originally built in Wolverhampton. The 45xx has been manufactured to the highest detail and will need about 120-150 hours of time to finish.

 

LK4 L & YO Pug Locomotive

These little engines were built for the L & Y by outside contractors Vulcan and Manning Wardle. The first loco delivered was in November 1891 and by 1910 fifty seven engines had been built. You will need about 150 hours to complete this kit.

 

LK5 0-4-0 Manning Wardle Industrial Saddle Tank

 

LK6 Neilson & Co 0-4-0 "Coffee Pot"

The kit is of the 1874 standard contractors design by Neilson & Co of Glasgow. The unusual shape of the Saddle Tank gave them the nickname "Coffee Pot". The completed locomotive is very heavy for its size and is also ideal for small radius curves.

 

LK7 GWR Manor 4-6-0 & 3500 Gallon Tender

The first Manor manufactured was Torquay Manor. This popular engine was lighter thann Halls and Granges and this enabled it to use the routes that the 2-6-0 63xx locomotives were working. Allow 120-150 hours of time to build this model.

 

LK8 GWR 2251 0-6-0 Tender Engine

1930 saw the 2251 class as a replacement for the Dean goods. The 15 ton loading axle meant the loco could be used on many branch lines of the GWR.

 

LK9 GWR Hall Class 49xx 4-6-0 & 4000 Gallon Tender

This kit is our largest kit to date with a mixture of white metal and brass used in the construction. The detail in the cab is complete in every respect; all the pipe work and even the gauges for steam and vacuum pressure are there. You will need about 120-150 hours to complete the kit.

 

LK13 Industrial Peckett 0-4-0

This loco was produced in many variants, our kit is based on the 33 ton version. Used in collieries, ports and factory sidings around the whole country. An ideal first kit, you will need around 40-60 hours to complete this kit.

 

LK14 GWR 64xx 0-6-0 Pannier Tank Engine

The 64xx tank engine was a smaller wheeled follow on from the 54xx locomotive. They were used in the South Wales valleys but some were to be found at Plymouth and Kidderminster sheds.  The kit, like our 14xx, is an ideal first time kit.

 

LK15 GWR 94xx 0-6-0 Pannier Tank Engine

The 94xx are the tank engine version of the 2251 class. Over 200 engines were constructed and they were very widespread on the GWR/BR railway system. This kit is a good first time kit and building time varies but around 60-80 hours to build time will be needed to complete this kit.

 

LK16 GWR 43xx

Described as one of the GWR's most versatile engines, the Mogul type 2-6-0 tender locomotive could be used anywhere and could handle goods and passenger traffic. 342 engines were built from 1910 and were super ceded by the Hall class.

 

LK17 GWR 93xx

Described as one of the GWR's most versatile engines, the Mogul type 2-6-0 tender locomotive could be used anywhere and could handle goods and passenger traffic. 342 engines were built from 1910 and were super ceded by the Hall class.
