7mm Narrow Gauge

7mm Narrow Gauge Locomotive & Rolling Stock Kits & Parts

A range of reasonably priced and simple to build plastic resin kits, which give good results and for the most part are designed to fit onto commercially produced and readily available chassis, the use of these mass produced items ensures economic, good running and attractive models for all in this compact but larger and enjoyable scale.

PURCHASING INFORMATION IS TO BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.

Please note that many of these kits may be used 'as is' or adapted for use on: 1:24, 1:32, 1:35, 9.5mm, 10mm to 1ft. and larger scales.

Locomotive Body Kits

The first five kits fit onto Hornby 'Smokey Joe' and similar Hornby 0-4-0T locomotive mechanisms with the minimum of modification; when sourcing a second hand mechanism make sure it is 'Made in China' as the 'Made in Great Britain' mechs. were often fitted with slot car motors and operate accordingly. The Chinese made chassis are very much more controllable at slower speeds. Added weight will always tame excessive speed in a model fitted with one of these chassis/mechanisms.

Some castings of these kits are loaded with lead shot to give added weight. Locomotive kits have brass reinforcing wire cast into the foot plate to aid rigidity. All kits are vacuum cast in Urethane resin and are complete except for paint and glue.

Dimensions are of the finished kits fitted with the recommended chassis where required, but excluding couplings. Dimensions are Length - Width - Height and are given in millimetres.
