MOD­ELLERS’ CV:

MICK AND DANIEL LAWRENCE

Model Rail (UK) - - Layout Fenwick Tmd -

Mick and Daniel gained their model rail­way ex­hi­bi­tion spurs with their ‘On30’ Amer­i­can log­ging lay­out ‘Twin Falls’, that has won many best lay­out awards since its ex­hi­bi­tion de­but in 2008. Mick grew up with old school model railways and ad­mits he has a pas­sion for any­thing to do with trans­port – from clas­sic cars and trac­tion en­gines to ships. They both en­joy watch­ing big con­tainer ships us­ing the DP World Lon­don Gate­way deep sea port and lo­gis­tics park in Thur­rock, Essex – and who knows what fu­ture mod­el­ling projects this will in­spire? They are very ex­cited by the op­por­tu­ni­ties that 3D print­ers and laser cut­ters can bring to the mod­el­ling world. “We could make some ex­quis­ite track ma­chines if we could af­ford some qual­ity equip­ment like that,” says Daniel. “It would beat cut­ting and shap­ing sheets of plas­tic card.”
