Professional bespoke transport-related model-making services provided - typically 4mm to 1ft (1:76, 'OO' gauge), 7mm to 1ft (1:43.5, 'O' gauge) and garden ('G' gauge) scales, although other scales considered. Bygone transport is a speciality, although more recent eras are also considered:

  • Buses, coaches and trolley buses
  • Railway locomotives, rolling stock and related buildings / structures
  • Trams (electric and horse-drawn)
  • Road vehicles (cars, lorries, vans, steam lorries and traction engines)

Models are typically constructed using either etched brass, white metal, resin or plastic kits. They are subsequently detailed, painted and finished to a very high standard, to match any prototype details provided. Selected kit-modification (kit-bashes) and scratch-building will also be considered where a ready-made kit is not available.

The models are hand-crafted and of very high quality and detail, building on 30 years of model-making experience. The models are suitable for either: individual display, inclusion in a model railway or model diorama (such as a model bus garage), or just simply as a unique gift for someone very special (even yourself!).

Certificates of uniqueness are supplied with each model.
