Kingsway Models - Ready built models & dioramas  (UK only)

   Please understand that availability of ready built models will depend upon my workload at the time.

At present (early 2018) it's generally unlikely that I will be able to offer any  ready built items.

At busy times, there may be a considerable wait, or a polite refusal!

 

Smaller models

High Road shops card model

I can build any of the models that are in the Kingsway range for you.

Most of the models in the High Street range are suitable for posting  in built up form - please CONTACT ME for price and availability.

 

Depending upon workload, a standard model from the range could be ready for posting to you within a week.

 

Prices depend upon specification.  As a very rough guide the price will be approximately three times the cost of the kit. Postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery will be extra.

Built up models will only be sent to UK addresses.

Collection by arrangement from Buxton, Derbyshire.

The models can be supplied with a suitable length of PAV paving ready for placing on the layout.

I can usually provide custom changes to any signs / posters on the model to your specification.

 Certain models benefit from extra scenic items which can be formed into a diorama scene.  Above is the LCW Little Chef building with an added car park.

 

Fire station models can be supplied on a scenic base to provide a suitable diorama for model fire engines.

 Larger Models

Due to their size, and inherently fragile nature,  larger models are not suited to posting and so would have to be collected from Buxton, Derbyshire.

Ready built extended models

Extended RD Hornchurch garage model

 Above is an extended version of the RD Hornchurch kit, which has had an additional roof bay added to double the depth of the standard model.

This sort of modification is straightforward to do with extra costs limited to additional parts.

 
 

GGX Bus garage extension kits

In order to allow for larger models to be built more economically I have designed the GGX range of bus garage extension kits. These are particularly useful for representing modern style bus depots. the range includes various styles.

The units can be easily joined together. Roofs are removable for easy access.

Extended Reigate bus garage model diorama

Reigate extended model bus garage with removable roof The Kingsway GGX generic bus garage extension kits can also be used to extend bus garage models.

This model of Reigate country bus garage has had parts from three GGX units added. The roof units are readily removable for access to the interior.

This method provides a much more economic method of producing a larger garage.

The only extra non-standard (and so, specially designed) part used, is the wall panel behind the bus in the street. This reproduces the real frontage as it was whereas the side and rear walls are standard GGX parts.

The GGX kits can be used to extend most of the bus garage kits in the range. For further details click here.

The model below was built using 2 GGX kits with a few other odds and ends. It includes inspection pits using the Kingsway PITS kit. More pictures by clicking the blue link just above.

Suggestions for new kits and one off models

It's always interesting to receive suggestions but I have an ongoing list of items that I hope to get around to. Unless the suggested subject is likely to be a useful addition to the range of kits, I will not be able to justify the time and effort that a new kit requires.

At the present , I find that I simply do not have the time to devote to 'one off models'. Unless the subject particularly appeals to me I am unlikely to be interested.

The photos below show some of the items I have built over the years and are included for interest sake.

 

 

Commissioned model of LUT Atherton bus depot

Model of LUT's Atherton, Howe Bridge bus depot. For further photos of this model , see here.

 This model is too large to be made available as a kit but see the MRSY model on the Provincial Bus Garage page for a 'lookalike' kit.

If you are working on your own project then do take a look at the free download page, where you can freely download and print such things as interior walls, garage backscenes, and garage roof sheets.


 

Extended London bus garage interior

An extended bus garage interior that was added to the standard BN Brixton garage kit. Although this was built from specially designed parts, a similar effect can be achieved using the GGX kits.
