The range was started in 1995 by Pete Stamper to develop etched model locomotive kits, in a variety of scales and gauges, of the smaller types of steam locomotives that were principally employed on the relatively small, rather than large mainline, railways. Update Several models from the range have also be made available in 7mm scale.
CSP Model Marketing acquired the 4mm range of etched brass kits in 2010. Ownership changed in September 2016 to Iain Young, owner of Sanspareil castings. The intention is to continue to promote and extend the range to include further prototypes whilst retaining the concept of the original founder. This includes standard gauge locos employed on light and industrial railways. At the 1923 grouping many of the smaller railways were absorbed into the 'big four', with the Great Western Railway, in particular, acquiring many relatively small locomotives. Kits of such locomotives are also produced. Several detailing brass castings have been added to the range on 2019. We are always interested to hear your suggestions for kits, especially if you have any information about models in our range.
In addition to selling kits we provide the following services
- lost wax castings facilities in brass, nickle silver and copper
CSP Models is also linked to Sanspareil 'O' gauge kit manufacturer and Lost & Foundry supplier of cast brass parts in O gauge to assist the modeller. See website for more information.
