Established in 2010 Kingscale was
introduced to meet the need for ready-to-run live steam
models for Gauge 3.
Over 200 live steam models shipped...
In the last three years we have manufactured and delivered
over 200 quality live steam models in G3 including the
Britannia and Coronation Class and 14xx tank locomotives. In
addition we have delivered 100 fine scale coaches.
Mike Pavie - consultant engineer...
None of this could have been achieved without the experience
and knowledge of award winning model engineer Mike Pavie.

Same philosophy - bigger gauge...
With the success of our smaller gauge models, and absolute
confidence in our quality processes, we felt it was time to
design and manufacture our first batch of 5 inch gauge
models. Our philosophy for the larger gauge is identical to
that which we apply to Gauge 3.
Our aim is to produce ready-to-run, exhibition quality,
scale models of well know prototypes at a great
Built to order...
We can achieve this great balance of high quality and value
for money by building our models in reasonably sized batches
using the latest CNC facilities. Of course, state of the art
production can only take you so far. Each model has to be
assembled by hand the same way now as would have been the
case 100 years ago. Each model can take up to 250 hours to
machine and assemble.
Because so much time and expense is involved in the
production we generally commit to making an individual model
only on the basis of a firm customer order reservation.
High re-sale values...
Although it is rare for a customer to buy with investment as
the primary objective a happy by-product of our high
quality, low price, philosophy is that customers can
reasonable expect their well cared for model to retain its
value. To the best of our knowledge mint condition Britannia
models have never been re-sold for less than the customer
