December 2018The December 2018 issue of Hornby Magazine is available now, offering an exclusive Hornby model giveaway with four great prizes, 172 pages of model railway content, exciting modelling projects, inspirational layouts and the very latest releases across ‘OO’, ‘O’ and ’N’ gauge.
Highlights include Michael Smith’s huge ‘OO’ gauge loft layout Lakeside, Wolfe Lowe in ‘O’ gauge modelling the early years of the LMS and quarry operations and the West Coast Main Line in ’N’ gauge at Clifton and Lowther.
