COVID-19 UPDATE — JUNE —
We are still open for business, and our printers and cutters are still very much at work!
Stay safe, keep modelling and check the website regularly. New kits always under development!
Welcome to our website, we are a small company that specialises in 3D printed, laser-cut acrylic kits in 16mm scale, we design, print & cut locomotives in 32mm or 45mm gauge together with a range of road vehicles & other scale models.
Using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs all kits are designed and printed in-house, with affordable prices, the model locomotive kits come complete with the necessary 3D printed parts, along with wheels, gears & motor.
As well as the locomotive kits, we also offer a custom chassis building service (inside or outside frames, steam or diesel). All we require is drawings of the chassis you would like us to design and/or print.
We are also offering part (or full) exchange deal on any of our 3D kits, please contact us for further details.
CUSTOMERS SHOULD NOTE THAT PDF MODELS IS A SMALL “COTTAGE INDUSTRY” THAT WE UNDERTAKE IN OUR FREE-TIME, OUTSIDE OF OUR FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT. KITS ARE PRINTED 24/7 AND WE USUALLY AIM TO DISPATCH ORDERS AT THE END OF THE WEEK. PLEASE BE PATIENT, SOME KITS CAN TAKE WEEKS TO PRINT BUT WE WILL COMPLETE YOUR ORDER IN DUE TIME AND DISPATCH PROMPTLY.
