4mm:1ft Scale. 16.5mm Gauge "Howard" is based on a locomotive now preserved on the East Lancs Railway. It is Planet No 3438 built in 1950 by Hibberd & Co. Planet was the trade name used by Hibberds on all their locos, but the design originated with J & F Howard Ltd of Bedford in the late 1920's. Howards were originally built to the same basic design in 10 and 12 ton versions with Dorman petrol engines. Our prototype has a slightly more sophisticated cab and a diesel engine but is otherwise identical to those earlier engines. "Howard" is a 4mm scale cast whitemetal kit and is designed to fit on the Tenshodo WB24.5mm motor bogie without alteration. We can no longer supply this motor bogie, which is still available from other suppliers.
