The December 2018 issue of Hornby Magazine is available now offering an exclusive 2019 calendar featuring the best layouts and photographs from 2018, a big Hornby model giveaway with four great prizes with a total value of more than £1,000, 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. Add to this a full survey of BR blue steam locomotives, a guide to installing frog switches, weathering heavy freight locomotives and installing sound in a Adams 4-4-2T in ‘OO’ and there is plenty to look forward to.

The reviews are headlined by Heljan’s new ‘O’ gauge model of the Class 25/3 while we also inspect the latest releases from Hornby, Bachmann, Olivia’s Trains and Dapol. In the news we update you on the GT3 project for ‘OO’, preview the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition and round up the winners of the first Hornby Magazine Model Railway Awards and more.
