Forthcoming Association events are described on the Events Page

 

The 2mm Scale Association exists to promote and facilitate modelling at the scale of 2mm:1ft. The scale has a long history as the smallest practical finescale standard.

By joining the Association, members gain access to a wealth of knowledge and our exclusive component range designed to enable simple and accurate construction.

Find out how to get started in 2mm FineScale; with the products available from the 2mm Scale Association its easier than you might think.

Our component ranges include jigs and alignment tools which remove the guesswork and need for specialist measuring equipment from precision model making. We also produce booklets which explain the construction techniques which have been developed over the years.

To keep our members in touch we produce a bi-monthly magazine and newsletter. For those with access to the internet we offer an email list where members can chat about anything pertinent to 2mm model making.

This website contains information about the Association and 2mm standards, articles about model making, and photographs to inspire the model maker.

Kendal 2016 Source: St Ruth | 31 Jan 2016 | 10:55 pm GMT
Just back from an excellent weekend in Cumbria at the Kendal show - the furthest north that we've been so far. It was rather humbling to hear that some people were coming down from Scotland to see us (and hopefully the other layouts too). For the most part the layout ran pretty smoothly. A new inno ....

January Meeting Source: Canterbury 2mm Area Group | 16 Jan 2016 | 6:40 pm GMT
The latest meeting was the subject of much frustration with the tramway. Martin struggled on tweaking the track (seriously under gauge in parts ) but the running was still extremely poor. Discussion was had regarding what to do, however Martin resorted to the nuclear option of a hefty metal block ....

Well, I didn't give up. At the end of the last post, I had the chassis running nicely with the controller wired directly to the motor, but picking up from the rails was less impressive, despite the fitting of the 'Simpson spring pickups' rubbing on all the axles. The chassis was disassembled and re- ....
