Locomotive Modelling from Scratch and Etched Kits Part One by Geoff Holt. Geoff Holt expertly describes how to create locomotives from either scratch build or etched kits. Very well illustrated throughout with colour photography and numerous sketches and line drawings, the book starts with a more or less general introduction to tools, materials and techniques before embarking upon a “signature model”, the Great Central’s “Immingham” class 4-6-0. Two of these are to be built in 7mm scale, one from scratch and the other from a kit.

The first volume will take us as far as the rolling chassis, with part two taking us to the completion of the job.
