This page shows just a small selection of full range of items available to our members. The Society also promotes finescale modelling generally, and makes available to modellers in any scale a small number of items that would help them, including the Society's own book on the renowned Alex Jackson coupling and many jigs to aid its use.
Society policy is to concentrate on basic essentials needed for P4 modelling as well as specialised items not always stocked by the trade.
