Peco have released PC90 Parkside OO BR(E) 13 ton steel body hopper wagon. We have already had a number in and out, but supplies from Peco are limited. Our part number KPC9000, (also in EM and P4). We are doing our best to maintain stock, but usually waiting on deliveries. It is really down to Peco.


We are continuing to work as normally as we can during lockdown and the easing of lockdown. This is causing a slight overload, so we are a little slower than usual. Also it has drained our stocks and those of our suppliers. While we try to maintain good stocks it is not always possible. We do not guarantee any item is in stock, but you can order. In particular, most Modelu items are on a 2 to 3 week leadtime. Please be patient. Thank you for your support during this situation.


We are progressivel enabling exports. Currently royal Mail should be working for all areas. We have not yet enabled courier exports. As we had a lot of parcels go missing, all exports will now be tracked. This is more expensive, but unavoidable. Because of the beaurocracy involved export orders may take up to 2 weeks before we send them. We are nor currently registered under IOSS so the customer is responsible for paying all taxes, duties and charges to the carrier.

We have also been told by Swann Morton that we are no longer able to send their Blades to USA, Canada and Australia. This seems to be caused by some complexity of CE marking and medical grade products. Although the products we sell are not declared Sterile, the rules still apply. Beaurocratic hogwash that we have to follow.


HMRS are haveing severe manufacturing problems and have taken the decision to stop trade sales. This means we will be unable to take orders for trasnfers we do not have in stock, and will probably have to refund some customers. We have temporarily taken all HMRS products off the website while we do a stocktake and will then put back on with stock levels. Hopefully by end March 2021.




Once again, thanks to all our customers for their support and tolerance during this crisis. We hope you find the new website easy to use. If you have any issues please let us know.

We are open for business and trying as hard as we can to get as many orders out as possible. It is much more efficient for us if you are able to place your orders on the website.

Please note, most products are normally in stock (in normal times}. These are not normal times and suppliers are having issues, so we some normally stocked items are slow to arrive. An item being shown as available to order does not guarantee they are in stock at that time.

With so many people active at home the supply chain has been sucked dry on many items. Stock is now our main issue. We are getting lots of stock in, but many are taking much longer than usual to supply. Many of our suppliers are in the same situation as we are, so stock levels are a serious issue. If we have stock orders are quick to process, however where there are shortages it takes at least twice as long to deal with. Please do not chase us until at least a week has elapsed as this also slows us down, and then by email please.

We are awaiting deliveries from Gibson Wheels, HMRS transfers, some many Peco/Ratio/Parkside products, many Gaugemaster products and several other items. We are doing our best to resolve these issues.  We will try to notify customers of problems as we process their orders. We are seeing orders for quantities way beyond our normal stock levels on many item, so we are unable to guarantee delivery from stock.

Please do not send orders by post, they will not be processed, we have not been in a position to accept cheque payments since all our local banks closed.

We thank you all in advance for your understanding. Stay safe, keep well, keep modelling.

We want to support our customers so, with no shows to collect from, we have now reduced the threshold of our free UK (excluding IOW) and CI postage from £100 to £30 for a large letter and £50 for all other shipments. This is applied automatically at checkout and applies to web orders only. We do not offer free delivery on telephone orders.

*** Cancelled shows: ***


We are no longer accepting orders for show collection, until further notice.

We are suppliers of a wide range of tools, equipment and materials needed by all model makers, whatever their level of experience or expertise. Many of these products are also useful for other activities including Antiques Restoration, Clock Making, Craft and Beading etc.
