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.

DCC Sound Experiment Source: Trevanion Dries | 22 Aug 2015 | 6:27 am BST
A short clip of a china clay train ariving at the dries, with the added interest of DCC off-board sound. Still a few tweaks to make. Let me know what you think. Graham ....

Afternoon all, 3 months since last post Actually have been suffering the post exhibition dip, loss of mojo and snowed at work...however, am on hols for a couple of weeks now so might try to make some headway.

Back to David's this month (and hopefully back at my place next month with the building finished although possibly in the inside Craft Room rather than the outside Train Shed depending on how much has been removed from said shed!) to find that a) he has a new kitchen and b) his 2mm plank has grown ....

Farewell Special... and Opening Day Source: Hydraulic Heaven | 9 Aug 2015 | 8:57 pm BST
First of all, apologies to anyone expecting 2FS content. Let's just call this a summer special. Today was a sad and a happy occasion. The builders arrive tomorrow to start work on our house extension. This means that the patio section of my garden line will have to close. Today was the final day, s ....

August Meeting Source: 2mm Kent and Essex Area Group | 9 Aug 2015 | 8:52 pm BST
Keith had prepared a new baseboard frame to support a traverser/fiddleyard for one end of the baseboard. Current plans are to devote half of it to a traverser, to hold traffic to/from the outside world, with the other half tentatively allocated to an extension of the yard sidings.Alan had replaced  ....

A Terrier for Freshwater Source: Basingstoke Area Group | 8 Aug 2015 | 6:29 pm BST
As anyone who has seen my layout at exhibitions can tell you, so far some very unlikely motive power has been operating the Freshwater line of the Isle of Wight. I do intend to rectify this, but getting the layout operating smoothly, and scenery added were higher priority. I have acquired some D ....

Moving on from the old layout has allowed me to focus and actually contemplate doing something.The "something" being my first DIY track in any scale or gauge. Not for me a simple turnout, lets build a crossover Thanks to those who gave advice on the 2mm VAG and to all involved in the "Track" book ht ....

For my next 2mm scale engine I had been considering an Armstrong Goods 0-6-0 tender engine (which I will also build) but in the end I've decided to begin work on a GWR "Buffalo" 1076 class. This engine is effectively a tank engine version of the Armstrong Goods, having the same wheelbase but slightl ....

Not much progress to report on Lightcliffe since my last post - at least not by me ... I've had a couple of Saturday afternoons on the layout laying cobbles but didn't have my camera with me, so no photos. Must remember to take it with my to the next Group meeting on Saturday. The layout was on ....
