Welcome to my web page!

My custom-built models cars are all 1/43 scale and based on existing handbuilt white metal models. I work mainly with Brooklin, Lansdowne, Robeddie, Somerville and Kenna. I have also carried out conversion and restoration work on Pathfinder, Crossway, and K&R. My model conversions are officially acknowledged by Brooklin ,Somerville, Western Models and Durham Classics.

Two examples of models that have come in for repair can be found in the British section. Both the Pathfinder Riley 1.5 and Standard Pennant had suffered crushed roofs as a result of being dropped. I rebuilt the shells and added extra detail to distinguish them from the already excellent standard versions.
I accept commissions for one-off conversions and also produce small runs of special models. In the past I have made small production runs of British cars. The Hillman Californian, Zephyr station wagon and Austin A95 Countryman were made to order but are no longer available. Examples of these models are shown for reference.

The gallery is divided into American makes, British and European cars and commercials which include emergency service vehicles.

Have a look at my model collection and if you like what you see, email me to discuss having a special model built. My prices start at 90 pounds for a refinished standard Brooklin that includes the base model but not shipping and prices rise depending upon the work involved.

PLEASE NOTE! The photos you see on my website are for reference only and are intended as a guide. Some can be replicated, some not. I do not have examples of these models in stock.

Happy collecting!
