We started producing and selling precision paints in 1972
 

Since then we have had our ups and downs, have supplied British Railways, the National Railway Museum and various preservation societies but we still have, probably, the most accurate and extensive range of paints for the modeller of British Outline railways.

Since 2010 we have added to the variety of products we can offer the modeller, with kits, bits and pieces and now solders, fluxes and chemicals.
