These kits contain everything you need to produce a rolling model. All etchings, laser frames, castings and other bodywork details are included, but there are no mechanical details or motor sets to enable the loco to run. These kits are perfect for you to add in your own electrics and radio control.
These contain everything from the static kit, as well as all the steam fittings, pipework and boiler to produce a meths fired loco.
Some of our kits have a large enough boiler to enable coal firing! This kit will contain everything from the static kit, Plus a fire grate, ashpan, pipe fittings and a boiler suitable for coal firing.
