Meeting Tim Watson and the 2mm Midland Spinner

Posted on Updated on

I had read a lot about Tim Watson via google and some of the remarkable models he has scratch built in 2mm scale.

I was lucky enough to meet him at the Copenhagen Fields Layout on the MRC stand at Alexandra Palace this year. I then had the wonderful opportunity to meet Tim at the Model Railway Club just by Kings Cross/St Pancras where he showed me the Midland Spinner he hand built some 30 years ago, and that I hope to attempt to build myself. Tim has been invaluable to learning some of the techniques needed for the construction of these models and also has a passion that is infective.
