Tuebrook Models Kit Building Service

Locomotives and Rolling Stock

Welcome to Tuebrook Models. My name is John Nowell a model maker offering a variety of professional model construction services. After a lifetime of model making as a hobby, I am now offering my experience to construct high quality models to anyone who wants them.

You are welcome to request a quotation for the construction of a specific model. I can construct a wide range of models, in a variety of scales, painted and finished to your exact requirements. Construction of your chosen model will typically start with a commercially available kit. I can work with kits made from plastic, resin, white metal, etched brass (or other metals), or a mixture of some or all of these. I can simply construct it to a high standard, as intended by the manufacturer, or I can modify it some way, for example by fitting third-party accessories to add or improve detail, or even by combining parts from different kits to produce a model of something that is not available as a standard kit. I will also paint and finish your model in the colour scheme of your choice.

The models I produce are primarily intended to run on a suitable railway layout. They are often fragile and will not stand rough play without damage: they are not toys. Where you want something a bit different, or a model of a specific object, but are unable to supply me with the necessary detailed information, I can also help with the research for your model, from searching for suitable books or other publications through to visiting museums or other locations to take photographs, notes and/or measurements; please contact for details, or specify your requirements when requesting a quotation.

Most of my modelling has been in 4mm scale on 16.5mm track however I have built P4 stock and some N gauge kits. For locomotives I am happy to use either Markits or Alan Gibson driving wheels. At the present moment I like using High level Gear boxes with Mashima Motors however it will interesting to see what replaces Mashina Motors.
