Modelling the railways of the Maroochy Shire region has long been popular with fans of these operations.
  Scratchbuilding has been the primary method of building scale models, while a number of manufacturers have put out relevant kits, and soon ready to run, items of use to those wanting to recreate memories on a smaller scale.
  While, in 2017, we cannot have the real thing, modelling can give a real sense of what those days were like.

  This section aims to look at both the retail and private modelling sides of the hobby, what is available, what is now unavailable and what fans have managed to achieve over the years.

  If you are a retailer and are either not listed here, or have a relevant item planned, please contact us. If you are a modeller and would like to share your work with others, please email us.
