Loco Kits -  7mm Scale 20HP WD Simplex
4mm Scale  SIMPLEX KIT NOW AVAILABLE CLICK HERE
Click for movie
I am now working on the 009 R&R 20HP kit.   Here are some photos of the prototype which was my original micromotor design and dates from 2003 before I did the O&K kit.    The drive is
belt drive to a lay shaft then worms to the wheelsets with compensation and runs extremely well (though I say so myself).  Unfortunately I rarely have time for this activity and have taken so
far several years longer than I had hoped!
The left hand version of the above photo downloads a movie showing the prototype 4mm scale 20HP Simplex pulling a train of 25 skips, a mixture of my own whitemetal and resin, Egger
and Minitrains/Roco vee tippers, over an Egger track oval including two plastic frogged Egger points.  The controller used was a KPC switched feedback hand held unit also a KPC
transformer.  Hopefully this video will be an encouragement to those who doubt the pulling capacity or running characteristics of  these small locos.  I have a video of the O&K doing the
same thing.

The right hand version of the photo brings up a larger view of the pic.

Loco Kits -  4mm scale Ransomes & Rapier
This product is now available!
Following the R&R an O&K 20HP 0-4-0 (yes a steam loco) is also on my list, and in fact I suspect I can easily come up with enough loco projects to keep my going for a good few years...  
I am also experimenting with even smaller mechanisms with a view to modelling very small industrial narrow gauge locos in both 9mm & 6.5mm gauges.

If you are interested in any of these loco kits or have any questions please email me.
