Accurascale Welcomes Alex Carpenter On Board

Our Accurascale family grows ever stronger as Alex Carpenter has joined us in the role of Project Manager (Special Projects and Reproductions). 

Alex will be familiar to many within the hobby through his business "ABC Workshops", set up by Alex at the tender age of 14 to detail and weather models to a professional standard in 4mm and 7mm. Alex has also written numerous articles on detailing and improving existing ready-to-run (RTR) models for "Rail Express Modeller", further demonstrating his excellent eye for detail and wish to push RTR models to the next level.

In 2011 Alex began working with Bachmann Europe on their annual catalogue and from 2019 joined the company full time as a a Researcher and Design Engineer, a role which he held until joining us last month.

A long time member of Derby club, Mickleover MRG since 1998, Alex has been heavily involved in organising the Derby roundhouse show and overseeing MMRG Exclusives, limited edition models for the club.

Away from the model railway scene, Alex also holds interest in the real railway, and there have been some big developments recently in this area. 

As part of the 125 group, Alex has taken the plunge into real train ownership, realising a life long ambition with the purchase of a HST powercar! 43025 has been secured for preservation and recently moved to Ruddington to being its new life after finishing its career in squadron service on the mainline.

The plan for 43025 is to restore it to mainline operating condition so while Alex will be working on producing museum quality models for you to enjoy by day, he will also be working to restore 43025 to her former glory for you to enjoy on railtours and galas at the weekend!

Speaking about joining Accurascale, Alex expressed his excitement about the job ahead; “I’m very pleased to have been invited to be a part of ‘The A Team’, and I’m genuinely excited to start on a new chapter in my working life with them doing what I love.

"The industry has changed significantly in the last few years, and I firmly believe Accurascale has changed the UK market for the better, bringing modellers and enthusiasts high quality well presented models at reasonable prices, whilst also actively pushing the boundaries of what is physically possible in a model regardless of what has gone before. Price doesn’t mean compromise.

"For me it’s also about the presentation and launch of a model and not just the work that goes into it behind the scenes, breathing fresh air into key things like packaging, paperwork, accessories and even social media. Another big one for me is being able to buy an entire rake of wagons off the shelf, all with different running numbers and variations, a novelty which simply didn’t exist in the UK market before.

"The use of high quality DCC sound and speakers as a factory fit, to the same standard that was previously only achievable via the aftermarket has also become a major game changer. All of these things have now become the standard by which other manufacturers are measured by, and I’m excited to be let loose on some new projects large and small.. or is that small or far away..! Here’s to the future.”

Accurascale Managing Director Stephen McCarron outlined his excitement on adding Alex to the team; "As accurascale continues it’s drive to bring innovation, fidelity and fair pricing to the market, we are delighted to welcome our newest team member, Alex, to help us maintain and exceed our high standards of delivery and customer experience.

"With extensive industry and ‘real’ train experience, we’re excited to showcase what Alex brings to accurascale in the months and years ahead! He is already working on some very interesting projects which we know will delight and excite the hobby as they come on stream in the coming years."

Look out for some exciting and interesting models from Alex in Accurascale boxes very soon!
