  • Barcode: 9781847970930
The 00 gauge ready-to-run market has changed dramatically over the past decade, with supreme levels of accuracy, detail, finish and mechanical performance now becoming the standard benchmark of all new models.  As the hobby continues to blossom, an increasing range of steam, diesel and electric subjects now find themselves in the catalogs of the leading manufacturers. Have the days of super-detailing and repainting our models now gone, or is there still a place for a more 'hands-on' approach to the hobby of railway modeling?  Professional model-maker George Dent suggests that even these state of the art models can be improved and offers a plethora of ideas and projects to produce some unique and highly detailed miniature locomotives.   The book covers prototypes from the beginnings of British Rail's Modernization Plan up to the present privatized scene and aims to cater for all skill levels.
