  1. A few images of my new H1 kit, etched brass structure with 3D printed brass and whitemetal parts. Should be available towards the end of the year with a limited run of about 20 kits (perhaps more if the kit proves to be popular). 

    Chassis will be 3D printed brass for weight and will include gears and wheels. Mashima motors are becoming hard to source and expensive so no motor will be included and left to the builder to decide.

    The engine doors will be movable if extreme care is taken whilst soldering but can be just fixed in place. A 3D printed engine will be included for the rear of the compartment if required (figure will not be included).

    Pictures are from test etches.

     Further details and prices to be updated soon, please let me know if interested so I can estimate how many kits to make available.

    Hi all,

    We now have 3D printed brass Dolberg Chassis and Timber Wagon add on's available in our Shapeways shop

    https://www.shapeways.com/shops/hesketh-scale-models?sort=newest

    These are available in brass only as the extra weight is required to ensure good running. Due to the material and 3D printing process they are expensive and I have little control over the price.

    The main advantage is that they are incredibly easy to build and can be assembled with glue rather than solder.

    All that is required are wheels and axles which are available from myself if required and will appear in the shop soon.

    All for now,

  4. Hi all,

    A very quick March update,

    I have managed to get a few more Mashima motors for the 7mm O&K MD2 kit, should be available again in a couple of weeks. These sell out as soon as I can put the kits together so check back soon.

    Slight delay with the R&R as I want to change a couple of parts on the etches, not to long now though I hope.

    All for now and happy spring modelling,
