One of Malcolm's recent creations, a 7mm Grange from his own kit.

 

Here's something to keep the rest of us on our toes. This 7mm 45xx was built by Malcolm Mitchell in his "A-shop" – the trading name for his finished 7mm models. You can see more of Malcolm's work on the A-shop homepage, while his 7mm kits were marketed by Just Like the Real Thing.

Moving to 2mm scale, this model of one of the standard designs of signal box was built and designed by Malcolm Mitchell for the Churchward Models range which he owned in the mid-1980s. The model was one of the first ever etched brass scenic models to be produced, and was featured in the first Model Railway Journal in the spring of 1985.
