The North East Area Group - 2mm Scale Association

This group exists as part of the 2mm Scale Association and as such encourages all aspects of modelling in a scale of 2mm = 1 foot. Mostly although not exclusively we model UK prototypes and the periods modelled can (and do) vary widely.
We are not a model railway club and have no desire to become one. We are simply a group of like minded individuals who all happen to belong to the same modelling association. We meet bi-monthly from February onwards on the 1st or second Saturday in the month at Saint Barnabus Church Hall, Bournmoor, Near Fencehouses, Houghton le Spring in the heart of North East England.
We welcome all to our meetings which generally take the form of an instructional session during which one or more group members discuss/demonstrate how they tackled a particular modelling project. This is always timed to be concluded around 4pm when our ladies, who also attend, provide us with a bit of light refreshment (well it's probably a bit more than that) and a small charge is made which covers the cost of providing the food and paying for the hire of the Church Hall.
Membership of the 2mm Scale Association is not a pre requisite of attendance but beware you may well enjoy your afternoon so much that application for membership follows none too soon afterwards.....!
An 'e' mail request to Mick Simpson at will ensure you receive detail of the meetings and their proposed content.
