Hachette Partworks, who produce a wide range of collectable magazine series in the UK, are pleased to announce that in December, for the first time ever in the UK, they will be releasing a build-up locomotive - the Flying Scotsman!
To date Hachette Partworks have released many successful build-up models including "Build the Titanic", "Radio Control BMW M3 GTR" and most recently "Build the Bismarck".
To celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the 1928 Flying Scotsman, Hachette Partworks have teamed up with the National Rail Museum and DJH model manufacturers to create a special anniversary edition build-up model in 0-gauge (locomotive and tender). This superb model has been researched by a team of British experts and it is an impressive and accurate replica of the Flying Scotsman locomotive as it was in 1928, when it made its first non-stop journey from London to Edinburgh. In every issue of the magazine there will be step-by-step instructions to assemble this highly detailed model.
