All DJH Model Loco kits are designed with an extreme attention to detail and built to the scale of the original model. Our Research and Development team examine archived drawings to gain access to the most intricate details of the original model and replicate this in the model designs – even down to the number of rivets used!
Handcrafted by our incredibly skilled team of modelers, toolmakers and craftsmen, all products are made at our modern factory based in Consett, County Durham. Using high quality materials such as pewter and brass, DJH Model Loco kits are extremely durable and built to last.
Suitable for experienced modelers, our K308 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
Designed as a medium-weight version of the Britannias (see K317A and K317B), the Clans spent virtually their entire lives in Scotland and north west England and were only occasional visitors to LMR lines south of Crewe.
Apart from the smaller boiler and firebox assembled in this kit from single large castings and the taller chimney and dome, they were to all intents and purposes identical to the Brits and there were no significant differences between the ten ‘Clans’. Among the many etchings included with the kit are a fold-up one-piece cab and the correct BR1 tender body with small water dome. The etched nickel-silver valve gear is particularly fine and most of the highly characteristic BR Standard steam fittings are executed as lost-wax brass castings to make soldering easier.
The locomotive numbers for this train are: 72000 – 72009.
