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 K336 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
The LNER Peppercorn Class A2 4-6-2 locomotive were built to the design of A.H. Peppercorn (The last Mechanical Engineer of the LNER). A total of 15 were built in two batches between 1947 and 1948 at Doncaster Works. They were designed to haul heavy fast goods trains. The last Peppercorn A2 was withdrawn in 1966 and is now preserved. The model is based on all the engines built in the class and will include the following details where appropriate.
Single/Double Stovepipe/Double Lipped Chimney, Standard or Multi Valved Regulators, BTH/Smith Stone speed indicators, AWS equipment and either the A2 or A1 style of front bogie. Please note; our model will not cover the seven engines while they carried the diagram 117 type boiler, these are as follows; 60526 (3/58 – 9/59), 60527 (5/57 – 12/58), 60528 (4/60 – 7/62), 60534 (6/59 – 2/61), 60535 (12/57 – 4/59), 60536 (4/61 – 12/62) and 60537 (5/58 – 10/61).
An exciting new simplified format from DJH, cast one-piece Cab/Firebox/Boiler/Smokebox/assembly and cast one-piece Tender Body.
This kit will appeal to experienced and novice kit builders alike for its greatly enhanced ease of assembly. Gone are all the intricate etched components that required soldering skills and hand dexterity yet its finished accuracy captures the look of the prototype faithfully through a combination of advanced toolmaking and casting techniques that DJH has pioneered in developing its factory batch built models.
