About Us


Established 4 years ago Finescalebrass (UK) Ltd is run in partnership with San Cheng the manufacturer of our range of models and formerly the supplier of the Brassworks range for Bachmann plus manufacturing commissions for other suppliers here in the UK and the USA.

John Riley

I started as a customer and liked the range so much that I pestered Randolph unitl he finally agreed to set up a UK operation. My interest in model railways started over 50 years ago and like many of you moved to the larger scales in my "later" years. The face of Finescalebrass at exhibitions as well as the voice on the phone.

Randolph Chang

Randolph was the original MD for Bachmann in europe before leaving to run his own brass manufacturing Company. Randolph can be credited with establishing the O gauge, fine scale ready to run market and developing the gauge 1 ready to run market to the level it is today.


Paul Moore

Paul is well known in the 4mm gauges and has won a number of awards for his work. He has a, well deserved, growing reputation in the larger scales. In my opionion Paul's work is on a par with the very best available. Because of this, the turnround on our commissions by Paul is currrently 12 months.

Steve is a well known, full time, professional loco builder/painter and a published author on painting and lining. His work is also of the highest standard. Steve is currently suffering a disabilitating illness which prevents him from painitng, we wish him a speedy recovery but until that time Steve is resting.
