MOD­ELLER CV: ROBIN SWEET

Model Rail (UK) - - Layout A Nod To Brent -

Robin and his fa­ther shared a pas­sion for model rail­ways. He had a train set when he was a child in the 1970s, but it was a chance en­counter that brought him back to the hobby years later. “My fa­ther and I were pass­ing a model shop in War­wick – over 20 years ago,” he ex­plains. “On the spur of the mo­ment we bought a GWR mixed freight train set. We set it up in his garage and ev­ery­thing spi­ralled from there.” Work on ‘A Nod to Brent’ started in 2003. Robin has con­tin­u­ously re­fined the lay­out over the years: “I don’t think lay­outs are ever fin­ished,” he says. “I’m al­ways adding, de­tail­ing and weath­er­ing new stock. That’s the aspect of the hobby I en­joy the most.”
