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 K96 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
Built in 1946/7, Edward Thompson’s version of the A2 class differed in a number of ways from the later Peppercorn engines. No. 500 was the 2000th loco built at Doncaster and was named after its designer, while in classic LNER fashion the remaining 14 members of the class carried the names of racehorses.
The kit features a whitemetal one-piece boiler/firebox/smokebox, cast footplate and detail fittings, an etched fold up cab and tender, with etched chassis and pre-assembled valve gear.
