|Below are some images submitted by society members demonstrating what can be achieved in 7mm scale, whether ready to run, kitbuilt or scratchbuilt.|
A scene from "Irton Road", a narrow gauge 7mm layout built by David Rae.
"Katie", a narrow gauge loco, on shed at "Irton Road" by David Rae.
The bogies are also from the same source, fitted with Peartree wheels, the buffers and couplings were sourced through Invertrain Models and the decals were printed by Simon.

This diorama is based around a GWR coaling stage during the latter years of WR steam, The king was built from a JLTRT kit by a friend and was weathered by myself. I wanted to convey the grimy appearance of steam sheds with the ash piles and general filth that accumulated around them.

Overseas tram locomotives. It represents a lager,
6-coupled horizontal boiler locomotive built in-house by the tramway
in the early 1890s to supplement the existing three coffee pot boilered
0-4-0s. It has been constructed from plastic sheet, strip and
tube. It runs on a regauged Bachmann On30 tramcar chassis, although
this is incorrect for the loco, being 4-wheeled.

HST Power car in InterCity Executive livery. This model was produced by 3D CAD design largely following drawings and photographs found in Modern Locos Illustrated No 208. The body designs were then printed on a high resolution printer and cast in resin for durability. The small detail castings were also drawn and printed but used as masters for lost wax castings. Two dimensional artwork was used for the etched cantrail and radiator cooling grilles. All artwork was drawn by myself using Autodesk Inventor for the 3D artwork and DraftSight for the 2D etch artwork.
