( 20 Nov, sorry Google have changed their code and broke the old calendar code. Investigations underway, but looks like a lot of code to re-write. Temporary view installed above pending investigation of other options. )

Association Events in 2015 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.

Warley 2014 Source: St Ruth | 23 Nov 2014 | 10:57 pm UTC
Back home now after our outing to our local mega-show. After a few comments from other people beforehand I was a bit wary of exhibiting at Warley but really enjoyed it. For sure, the NEC is a huge venue and this brings with it extra aggravation particularly during setup and packing up and for sure i ....

Last of the Year Source: Wealden Area Group | 22 Nov 2014 | 10:23 pm UTC
Today we held the last Wealden area group meeting for 2014. As meetings are on the 4th Saturday of the month, the theoretical December meeting always clashes with Christmas. So the next meeting will split the difference and be held on the 10th January then we revert to the 4th weekend in February. W ....

To some of you, the title of this post will seem familiar - most likely because like me, you supported Andy Vaughan's project on Kickstarter (here).#160;#160; Now I have no connection with Andy other than being one of the supporters as I thought the idea he had was a good one and deserved to b ....

Oh dear! It looks like my Hymek won't be appearing at Warley. The Hymek developed an issue a few months back with one of its wormwheels skipping on the worm. I think it had been happening for a while before I figured the problem out. The upshot is that the wormwheel teeth have been rounded off mak ....

Some of you may have seen the two new signals over on the 2mm Workbench thread. Last night they were planted on the platform. Unfortunately I failed to photograph the little signal covering trailing moves over the carriage siding points before the station board was boxed up ready for Friday. Anyway ....

Afternoon all - 6 months since the last update Work has been relentless and it will continue as that well into the new year...but I have since committed myself to take Kyle to the Burgess Hill MRC one day show in May 2015 as it made its original debut there as a boxfile layout in 2010 flown in as  ....

I've finally managed to scratch build a working locomotive in 2mm Finescale Since the last instalment, the sub assemblies have been primed with Halfords No 8 Self Etch Primer, the footplate sprayed with Precision Paints Indian Red. Before the b ....

I mentioned in my Reboot post that Julia is one of my inspirations when it comes to my modelling.#160; Her work on Highclere is first class and I would love to get to see it in real life one day.#160; Got to save the airfare first I guess! One of the other inspirations to my modelling is much clo ....

As I mentioned in the previous post, I have tended to spend my modelling time actually modelling (assuming I have had the mojo for it - this has not always been the case!) rather than blogging about modelling.#160; Consequently there have been a number of things which have been mentioned on this  ....

Reboot Source: Return of the Sith - Sithlord's Railway Blog | 10 Nov 2014 | 11:51 pm UTC
I feel at times like this blog is a bit like the Batman movie franchise - keeps getting rebooted only to die a few months later due to lack of time, lack of enthusiasm or too much work getting in the road of posting. After all with a finite amount of time in the week I have found that doing ac ....
