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 competent modelers, our K85 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
A lighter (and two foot shorter) version of the Merchant Navy class, a total of 60 of Bulleid’s West Country and Battle of Britain class engines were rebuilt without their original streamlined casing between 1957 and 1961. They worked main-line expresses to Bournemouth and Weymouth right until the end of Southern steam in 1967.
The kit depicts these engines in their rebuilt form with outside valve gear and features a one-piece boiler/firebox, cast footplate, etched cab and smoke deflectors, tender, valve gear and chassis.
