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 K320 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
This lightweight mogul design was introduced in 1946 and was the predecessor of the BR Standard 2MT which it closely resembles. Although some parts are common, we have produced entirely separate kits for the two classes. Designed by H.G Ivatt and the Class 2 2-6-0 was designed for branch and secondary line mixed traffic services. It was nicknamed ‘Micky Mouse’ on account of it’s small size and lively performance. A total of 128 engines were built between 1946-53 and allocated to every Region except the Southern. Withdrawals started in 1961 with the last one taken out of service at the end of 1967.
The kit features whitemetal boiler/firebox, a single casting for the footplate, etched cab and tender body with fine rivet detail and a host of lost wax detail fittings. The bolt-together chassis is etched in sturdy 36 thou brass while the more delicate coupling/connecting rods, valve motion and slide bars are in nickel silver. Sprung buffers are included.
