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 inexperienced modelers, our K43 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
Due to the rapid growth of freight trains, a more powerful class of locomotives was required. In 1908 Marsh redesigned 45 of the 55 engines designed by Billinton with a larger boiler. This created a more powerful freight locomotive which was names ‘Large Vulcans’ and classified as C2X. The C2X were a familiar sight on freight and other light duties on the Brighton line, the last being withdrawn in 1962.
The kit features a cast one-piece boiler/ firebox, cast tender and etched coupling rods and chassis.
