Welcome to Oswestry Works

This past 12 months I’ve been researching and designing my first model for 25 years, a cut away diorama of Oswestry Locomotive Works.  This new site should hopefully give a picture of the motivation to build it, some new (to me at least!) techniques and technologies I’m learning and some of the history and personal recollections I’ve collated during the research.   The menu at the top of the page gives background on each aspect of the model.

Having recently resigned from my 9-5 IT job, I’ve moved back to Mid Wales and will be shortly starting a business in the world of 3D printing and 3D scanning, with a view to offering both as a service to modellers.  I hope to launch later in 2015, you can find out more about ‘Modelu‘ (Pronounced ‘Mo-Del-Ee‘ – Welsh for Modelling) here http://www.modelu3d.co.uk

Thanks for looking!
