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 K5 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
These versatile engines, designed by Vincent Raven and introduced in 1919, worked fast goods and passenger trains on the East Coast Main Line. In later years they were often used on summer excursion trains to the coast. They were rarely seen south of Doncaster but they gave excellent service and the last of the class was not withdrawn until 1961.
This is a whitemetal kit with jig-drilled chassis. All DJH Model Loco kits are handmade from pewter and brass etchings to produce durable, hardwearing models. We recommend purchasing a AM9 Motor/Gearbox and WS K5 wheelset with this kit.
