The first kit released by Andy is for the Midland (steel-framed) van to D664.
The kit enables the builder to produce several variations and is a high quality production in etched brass and laser cut steel, with some cast brass and whitemetal fitments. The kit (supplied with wheels) costs 140 GBP plus postage.
Gnome Miniature Engineering : Specialising in metal bridges.
Structures are hand built from laser cut, brake formed parts, and assembled using solid rivets. The construction allows for special designs to customers’ requirements at a reasonable cost where standard parts can be used, and in fact, the specials are now a large proportion of our work.
The standard designs are for year round operation outdoors; corrosion resistant materials used throughout. They are ready to use, painted or unpainted, except for the customer's piers and track. A choice of widths allows them to be used with track from 16.5mm gauge for 0n30 to 63.5mm for Gauge 3.
We also undertake commission work, and a recent bridge was built to a completely original design in steel to display a 7¼” gauge live steam locomotive.
