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 K40 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
Ordered by the LNER and designed by Gresley in 1924 at a cost of £14,395.00, the U1 was the most powerful steam locomotive in the UK. The 2-8-0+0-8-2 Garratt articulated locomotive features two 2-8-0 locomotives operating back to back. It was used to assist heavy coal trains up the steep Worsborough bank in Yorkshire, and was later set to work on the Lickey Incline. The final withdrawal came in 1955.
This spectacular kit features a one-piece boiler/ firebox/smokebox, etched cab, superstructure, chassis frames and four sets of valve gear.
