Hi Dave,

I've been building one of their loco kits for a while now, it slowed down to a stop when I had trouble getting hold of a suitable chassis.

However what I have built is so far excellent. The Kit was originally an O Gauge kit and has been scaled down, obviously this means detail is excellent as the kit has effectively been produced from a 1-up (Larger prototype scaled down for production).

I haven't tried their wagon kits but I know some other members have, Zunnan and probably Grahame should be able to advise.

A mixed bag really. Some of their kits have been inherited from other manufacturers ranges who have gone to the wall or have stopped producing N gauge. Some are scaled down larger models. Some have a good pedigree by being mastered by top modellers such as Richard Dockerill. It's best to take a look and have a rummage on their stand. They attend a lot of shows and I understand that they are at Southampton at the end of the month.

However, the finish of kits is always dependant on the care and effort put in to building them and some require a little more work than others.

I am sure that everyone would agree that membership is more than worth it. 4 magazines, an excellent bound N Gauge handbook and access to the shop where theres loads that you will have difficutly finding anywhere else.

Not to mention the discounts off many N gauge suppliers items.

Yes. I wish I'd noticed that before I ordered the PD Marsh Grange body kit. (d'oh) But yes, the NGS is certainly worth joining.
