Meet the Team
55H is a trading name of Finescalebrass (UK) Ltd. It was established to differentiate the models now being made to Korean standards by FM Models to those previously made in China by San-Cheng.
Having started Finescalebrass some 9 years ago, I have recently retired and am now work part time with the model business .
As explained above I felt it was important to differentate the two manufacturers. Finescalebrass models are still available but the numbers at reducing as they sell out.
My interest in model railways started over 50 years ago and like many of you moved to the larger scales in my "later" years. The face of 55H at exhibitions as well as the voice on the phone.
Helping me with administration and occasionally at exhibitions, without Dawn's understanding, help and support there is no doubt that this Company would not have happened.
Having pioneered the higher quality models, we all now come to expect, with his A3 & A4's Lawrie has worked with me to research, develop, produce and market the 9F. He is also helping with the research, development and production of the Britannia and Duke of Gloucester to assist us in producing the best model we can. His current model of the Victoria Bridge can be viewed on his website.
