An Evening With...

Join Jim McGeown of Connoisseur Models to hear how O gauge enabled to him to journey from the dole queue to being his own man.

Jim was just a callow youth of 16 when he switched his modelling scale to O gauge. He also started serving his apprenticeship to become an electrical craftsman. By 1987 Jim found himself disillusioned by the job and unemployed.

During his 'Evening With' interview, Jim recounts some of the key points that enabled him, with the assistance of the 'Enterprise Allowance Scheme', and his modelling and electrical skills, to create the O gauge etched kit range that has supported him in being his own man for 34 years.

The event is live via Zoom on 26th May 2021 at 20:00 BST.

You must register for this event as places are limited. The event is FREE to members or £2:00 for non-members.
