I mainly supply laser cut and engraved name and number plates for miniature railways etc. in any scale, even full size. However once I have drawn a part in one scale it can be converted easily to any other scale. Also it is fairly easy to modify any existing standard plate drawing when it just needs the name or number altering. There are discounts for cutting more than one set of plates at the same time from the same material. Please ask.
My own modelling is in 7 ¼” gauge, hence the picture below taken at Stockholes Farm Miniature Railway in North Lincolnshire, England. Many of the wagons shown are mine or are based on my ‘easy build’ chassis design.
For more information, until more of this site is developed, contact me by any of the following methods.

I usually attend several exhibitions during the year, mainly Doncaster, the Midlands, and several gauge specific shows assisting my colleague Malcolm High on his Model Engineers Laser stand. Many of my ‘kits& bits’ can be seen and purchased there.
This is a one man part time business so please allow time for emails to be read, orders processed, new models and drawings to be produced as well as helping run the home, do my share of child minding my granddaughter, that’s usually Monday and Thursday, see contact times below, and walking the dogs. I have to get my priorities right.
I prefer to be contacted by email if possible but if you want to telephone the best time to contact me is between 9.30 and 1.00 then 2.00 till 5.00, apart from a dog walking break, Monday to Friday.
MODEL AND MINIATURE NAME AND NUMBER PLATES. KITS AND BITS TO BUILD MINIATURE RAILWAY WAGONS AND OTHER THINGS IN ALL SCALES FROM 0 GAUGE AND 16mm TO 7 ¼” GAUGE.
LATEST NEWS UPDATE
A new website for these plates will be on line in the very near future.
Look for: www.modelengineersnameplates.co.uk
A PDF version of my catalogue is available if you ask via email, see address at bottom of page.
I will be at the new Doncaster show on 12th, 13th & 14th May. If you are coming from the north by car I strongly suggest you do NOT use junctions Junctions 37 or 36 off the A1(M) as suggested in the show guide, and probably your Satnav, but carry on down to 35 the M18. If you know your way through Doncaster, and there is very little traffic then 37 may be quickest by 5 minutes. If not then both could easily be 15 to 20 minutes longer. I live very close to the Race Course and never use 36 and only very rarely 37.
My laser cutting machine will engrave and cut wood, plywood, MDF, card and many plastics. It won’t cut metals or PVC. I can cut and engrave NAME and NUMBER PLATES for many model and other applications. See from page 4 of the catalogue.
I have a complete 5” gauge wagon. My wife helped me to build it by doing all the fiddley boring bits. It should be ready and available for purchase at the Doncaster exhibition.
I also purchased a while ago my own CNC Sheet Material cutting machine which means I can now cut my own card for the smaller scale wagon steel strapping etc. and self adhesive Vinyl decals for wagon lettering, station and other signs.
I know the pictures in the gallery have bits cut off the bottom I will up load new versions when time allows.
