Model railway manufacturer, Accurascale has announced that Paul Isles has joined its team as Project Manager. Having spent a number of years with Hornby, modellers will be familiar with Paul’s work.

“It is Accurascale’s reputation for its attention to detail that excites me as a Project Manager – to have extensive and exhaustive research translated into a feature rich scale model is a massive inspiration for any research professional and I have very high hopes for the models that we currently have in development, as well as future projects in the pipeline.”
