About Our Railway Kits

Unless stated otherwise all our Railway kits are complete with buffers, coupling hooks, wheels, axles, axle boxes, bearings and detailing parts.

The kits are made from 3mm laser cut BB grade birch ply wood which may have blemishes or infill pieces, every attempt will be made to locate these in places where they can't be seen but this is not always possible.

Any type of wood adhesive such as EVO-STIK resin W is suitable, glues of the SUPER-GLUE type are not suitable and should be avoided.

Cut the breakout tabs with a sharp modelling knife rather than snapping the parts out as this may cause damage to the wood.

Before you start assembly Please read through any instructions carefully and familiarize yourself with the pictures and method of assembly.

Most parts can be dry assembled prior to gluing so you can familiarize yourself as to how the parts fit together.

All wooden pieces of the kits will benefit from a light sanding with fine grade sand paper to remove any surface texture and the pips left by the breakout tabs.

It's recommended that parts are painted or stained prior to assembly as glue residue will not take stain.
