Specialists in 2mm N Gauge Renumbering, Respray,
Weathering and Detailing. 

Commissioning a Model - Terms of Business - Postage

To commission a respray, first of all please contact us to discuss your requirements also the level of any extra detail that is required. Before any work is undertaken, the customer must either supply the base model or pay for the cost of the base model.
Turnaround time for most work is normally 12-15 weeks, but in some cases this may vary depending on work load. Livery corrections (partial respray) weathering, renumbering, fitting of precision printed or etched plates, snow ploughs or any other small detailing parts may also take a similar time. I will of course always advise you of the current work load and turnaround time before an agreement is made on any work that will be undertaken. For full loco resprays, I will also advise you of any extra detail that may be required for the prototype that is being modelled. You will of course incur extra cost the more detail that is added. If you just require a respray with the loco being returned in ex-works condition with no extra detail added, we are more than happy to carry this out. 

Loco resprays from £125.00 (Order book is currently closed for resprays)
Renumbering & weathering are still being accepted.
