What's new in 2mm scale modelling
A small black and aluminium case containing 81 wagons and 3 coaches was stolen by an opportunist thief on the evening of 15-Oct-2017 whilst a van was being unloaded at the Model Railway Club in London N1. The models were made by the late Bill Blackburn and were on loan to the MRC.

Each item has a conspicuous yellow dot painted on the underside. They are all to 2mm : 1ft fine scale standards. They are superb examples of work in the scale. If you hear anything of these, for example a collection of N gauge wagons being sold, please contact either the 2mm Scale Association or the Model Railway Club in London.

The Farish 64xx Pannier Tank is the latest model to have a drop-in wheel conversion kit. This conversion consists of new bearings, wheels, coupling rods, etc.. and simply drops into the chassis in place of the N gauge wheelset.
A superb running Finescale steam locomotive in ten minutes !

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.
