Full tutor lineup for Spring 2022 finalised

We have finalised all the courses for Spring 2022 and can now release the list of tutors that will be at Missenden Abbey from March 4th to 6th.

The 7mm and above locomotive and kit construction room will be presided over by our regular tutor for this topic, Kevin Wilson. Kevin has spent many years building his 7mm layout Bucks Hill, including the building of the stock for that layout.

In the 4mm smaller locomotive and kit construction room we will have regulars Tony Gee and Tim Watson. Tim is perhaps best known for his work on Copenhgen Fields, whilst Tony is a professional builder and custodian of Peter Denny’s Buckingham layout.

Paul Bambrick will once again be helping modellers with all aspects of back scenes and scenic modelling. Paul is a professional scene artist and has worked on many layouts including Kevin Wilson’s Bucks Hill layout. 

Painting and lining will be in the hands of professional model painter Ian Rathbone. Ian has been tutor for painting and lining at Missenden since the early years with Martin Brent.

Returning in the weathering room following their debut at the Autumn weekend will be Andrew Thompson concentrating on non-airbrush weathering and Chris Hopper for the airbrush weathering.

Karl Crowther will be taking the next level of semaphore signal construction, concentration on bracket signals. However those that did not attend his earlier course are welcome to attend this course and will be catered for.

Regular tutor Jerry Clifford will be back in a different guise this March running a new structure modelling course. Modellers will work on their own projects with key demonstrations and discussions of techniques provided by Jerry along with any help and advice on their own projects.

Justin Newitt of Rumney Models will be running a 3D CAD course based around Fusion 360. A new but vital skill for modellers wishing to take advantage of some of the new technologies that are become increasing available and affordable.
