The 2mm Scale Association promotes modelling at the scale of 2mm:1ft. We are the home of the proven 2FS wheel and track standards, which for over 50 years have been the smallest practical finescale standard.
Finer track and wheels than N Gauge, and less space than P4, EM or S7, 2mm FineScale (2FS) offers detail and smooth running in a small space. Easitrac flexible track, conversion wheels for Farish diesels and specialist kits, jigs and bits make 2FS easier than ever before.
