by Miles" has received some great testimonies over the years
from previous clients. These are just a few...
am thrilled with the model Miles has built! 'A Midland
Railway 6 wheel Clayton arc-roof Coach'. My grandfather
purchased one of these coaches in 1923 to form bedrooms
in a dwelling he himself built. My father later being
born in it. The quality of finish is fabulous, and the
lining work is outstanding & remarkable. Throughout the
build Miles was in regular contact to clarify what I needed
and gave suggestions as to improvements. The beautifully
finished model will now form the major part in a diorama
of Gresley Station. I can fully recommend Miles to anyone
who wants outstanding quality of finish for their projects.
It has been a pleasure to have work carried out so skillfully
& professionally. Thank you Miles."

craftsmanship and a lot more besides. Miles was very responsive to my particular requirements,
and he was ready to explain any issues that arose from them with a fine grasp of detail and a
willingness to be as helpful as he could, guiding the whole process so that I ended up with exactly what
I wanted. You certainly do get what you pay for."
Dave Moore, Wales
"Over the past few years
I have had a number of model buses built by Miles Glenn, the latest being a 7mm scale London Transport
LT class. All have been built to an exceptionally high standard, which I would best describe
as 'museum quality'."
D. Munkenbeck, Norfolk
"Miles delivered a fantastic model
of an LNER Sentinel railcar based on Worsley Work etches and Black Beetle motor bogies. He kept me informed
on progress at all times, and always consulted me when choices were needed. I have no hesitation in recommending
him to other clients."
Andrew H., Hampshire
"All good, excellent work, can't stop looking at them."
D. Hodgkinson, Berkshire
"Great excitement when set 34
arrived safe and sound. Beautiful models. I will be testing the set today. My first impression was that they
are the finest models I've ever commissioned. I'm glad I found you and that you accepted the work."
Peter Clark, Kent
one of the owners of Class 14 D9537 based on the East
Lancashire Railway it was an obvious choice to have a
model of this locomotive constructed when my children
asked what I wanted as a 50th birthday present.
quality of workmanship is unbelievable in 'OO' gauge (and
any other I should imagine). Miles has captured every
detail to perfection, even the bespoke buffer beam detail
which is a work of art in itself. Miles consulted me all
the way through the project to ensure everything was to
my satisfaction and at times probably had a better idea
than I did.
am totally lost for words with the finished model, absolutely
perfect in every detail comparing it to the original locomotive.
I cannot recommend Miles enough, he has a true talent
in model construction and finishing."
Steve Lucas, Yorkshire
delivered this challenging OcCre LCC conversion on schedule
and far exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and
finish. He kept me up to date on progress, and always
consulted me when decisions and adaptations on it were
needed. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other
Andrew M., France
Glenn, trading as "Better by Miles" has created the best
models I have ever seen, and I admire them every day.
Perfectly finished, my model buses replicate the real
thing in every detail, including the subtle variations
that make each one unique. In my opinion it would be foolish
to even consider trusting anyone else with this kind of
impaired vision in old age I didn't want to risk assembling
model kits myself, only to regret the consequences. So
I called the undisputed expert as recommended to me by
friends who had seen examples of his professionalism and
devotion to duty."
Brian Thompson, Dorset
this life you get what you pay for. I have bought miniature
works of art. I still get a immense amount of pleasure
just looking at them. One word sums up Miles' skill -
Dave Wallis, Kent
have had six bus and tram models built by Miles Glenn
over the past few years - four from kits and two from
scratch. In each case, the quality of the finished product
has been outstanding. With his meticulous attention to
detail, Miles creates miniature works of art which are
truly representative of the full-size vehicles. By keeping
me involved at each stage of the process, he ensures that
he always meets and exceeds my expectations. In short
and thanks to his painstaking approach, I have been delighted
with the models Miles has produced to date and I look
forward commissioning many more models in the future."
Chris Richardsen, Hampshire
say I'm delighted with my two models is an understatement!
The attention to detail and quality of the paint finish
is outstanding! Throughout the build process Miles was
in regular contact with me with ideas and suggestions
to improve the models. Nothing was too much trouble for
him and the finished models have by far exceeded my expectations
of what I thought was possible to achieve at this scale
Chris Wood, Leicestershire
delivers quality and perfection in his model making and model finishing. He has most definitely
met all my requirements and expectations. First class service by a first class gent. Highly recommended."
Tony Hammond, Cheshire
there are any model collectors out there who long for
something special. I can recommend the work of 'Better
by Miles'. You'll not be disappointed and I for one have
already placed another order for eight more kits to be
assembled, both resin and metal. Yes it really is the
next best thing to owning a real one."
