For some years I have uploaded images of N Gauge (1:148) models to this gallery, and have been most gratified by your kind comments and observations. Many have questioned in the past whether I would be selling these scratch-built models or taking commissions, and I have been hesitant for many reasons. While those models already complete are to remain in my collection, these discussions have set me thinking for the future.
Put simply, I have been considering making a limited edition batch of N locomotive models for sale. The intention would be no simplified cast products, but individually custom-built miniatures from scratch. They would have to be moderately simple designs - although retaining all of the details that you have become accustomed to in my own models - but I am interested to know your opinions, specifically:
Would this be of interest?
Should the engine(s) be British, Continental, American or other?
Do you have any particular locomotives in mind (for example, I was considering the B&O 'Tom Thumb')?
How much would you be prepared to pay for such a limited edition piece (potentially only around 5-6 to be built at first)?
Please leave any thoughts or comments, and thank you for your interest in my work and this venture.
