LSWR/SR/BR Drummond L11 4-4-0  7mm and 4mm kits

This new kit contains alternative parts to enable construction of an accurate model of one of Dugald Drummond’s L11, mixed traffic 4-4-0s, from their introduction in 1903 to the last withdrawals in 1952.
The kit is highly detailed in etched nickel silver and brass with detail castings in brass  and whitemetal. Construction of the loco ‘body’ is eased considerably by the use of a fold up jig for the footplate.
