Australian N Scale Manufacturers

It wasn’t all that long after N scale became a serious modellers scale in the US that the first prototype Australian N scale models began to appear thanks to Freidmont Models and others. They were a little rough around the edges but they gave us something to work with.

Shortly after those first expoxy models appeared that people like Ian Alce and Phil Badger took Australian N scale to the next level and I will never forget seeing Phil’s model of Richmond for the first time or the sight of a scratch built 30 class tank loco in operation.

Australian N scale has come a long way since then and here are some links to help you find the products you need to model Australian outline in N scale.

While some of these N Scale manufacturers only sell their products through hobby shop many of them offer their products through their website so be sure to check them out.
