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 K79 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
The 9F was the last and unquestionably one of the greatest steam locomotive designs ever produced in this country. Though many of these big 2-10-0s saw only a few years’ service their tremendous power, reliability and versatility made them a favourite with the operating departments of all BR regions. Originally a Western Region specification, many engines with the cutaway BR1G tender– 92000-92007/92203-92220/92221- 92250 – later moved to the London Midland and North Eastern regions. The locomotive and tender bodies are largely in whitemetal, with fold-up etched cab and smoke deflectors. The kit also includes alternative single and doduble chimneys and other detail variations – including a set of nameplates for Evening Star – to enable individual members of the class to be accurately modelled.
