To build a model of this quality from raw castings could take even an experienced model engineer over 1000 hours - perhaps many years in elapsed time. To commission a one-off from a professional builder of reputation would almost certainly cost in excess of £5000 - considerably more than the price at which we offer this model. CNC batch production delivers excellent quality at a very competitive price - providing confidence in the future value of your locomotive over many years of proud ownership.
In assembling and painting this fine model you are adding value to the basic kit and you should expect, in the event of a subsequent re-sale, to realise somewhat in excess of the kit price paid.
The Pug kit is designed for construction in under 150 hours.
Components are paid for and despatched monthly - sensibly spreading the cost and workload.
The following pages contain illustrations of each kit and a full parts listing. In addition we are able to provide photographs of the staged build from start to finish to demonstrate the fast and sure progress you can make as you build as you buy.
