This is a 4mm scale model of an LNER O1 class engine. This model is made from a fully custom set of etched nickel silver parts, castings from my own patterns and handmade parts as required.
This model of an LMS Compound encompasses all of my ideals as a model maker, where every process for the manufacture of each part is selected to create the best outcome. It has been built with the fewest possible compromises and includes wheels made to the Scaleseven standard.
It is approximately 90% complete, requiring small fittings and details to be made.

The chassis is made completely of nickel silver with all parts fabricated, machined or turned by hand. The Scaleseven wheelset is by Richard Hersey.
