What We Do:
We manufacture and supply miniature figures and scenic accessories, made from etched brass and cast white metal, in the Dart Castings, Monty's Models and Shire Scenes product ranges along with model railway vehicle detailing parts in the MJT Scale Components range. We also supply the Frogmore Confederacy range of detailing parts for Great Western Railway vehicles. While our roots are in model railways many of the items we supply can be used in other modelling projects such as dioramas and photographic work. All castings and etches are made in Great Britain.Click here for details about our products or use the buttons above to navigate the site.

New items added to range:
New to the Monty’s Models range of 1:43 scale (7mm to the foot) figures is a Locomotive Driver (MGV24) with his left hand on the controls.

New to the MJT range are a low Profile version of the well established Internal Wagon Compensation units (MJT2292) and a re-tooled version of the Three Axle Compensation system (MJT2299T). The low profile unit is better suited to vehicles where the clearance between the floor and the axle line is limited; along with some 1:76 scale wagons, this will make it easier to use with HO gauge and 7mm narrow gauge. The modifications to the Three Axle unit include an optional internal axle carrier for the centre axle - this will help with wagons that have to negotiate tighter curves - and a clearance hole for the deeper flanges on some 14mm rolling diameter OO gauge wheels.

To complement the new range of MJT Rigid Bogie Frames (2553 / 8ft, 2556 / 8ft6in and 2559 / 9ft) we have introduced a Coupling Tongue featuring a NEM 362 pocket - MJT2580. In the fullness of time we will expand the range of rigid bogie frames to cover all the popular wheelbases. Hand in hand with this we will be increasing the range of MJT cosmetic bogie sides. In the pipeline are the GCR Fox 10ft6in (as used on the so called ‘Barnum’ coaches), the LMS 9ft welded and the BR(S) Mk6 Power Bogie (as used on the later ‘slam door’ EMUs).

Also new to the MJT range are some GWR springs (2287 2288) and a re-tooled GWR oil axlebox (2248A). The springs are 5ft and 6ft long and complement the Shire Scenes range of etched sides for 2 and 3 axle passenger cars. Additionally, there is a GCR 6ft 6in spring with leather hangers (2289).

In collaboration with the 3mm Scale Association we have re-introducing the range of 3mm scale Carriage Compensation Units (CCUs). While designed to operate with 3mm scale bogies and the associated track gauges, these can be used on narrow gauge vehicles with an axle length of around 20mm.

Social Media:
We have recently taken our first steps into the realm of social media by introducing a Facebook page for Monty’s Models. As we gauge the response it is our intention to introduce similar pages for the other parts of the Dart Castings Empire. Please have a look at the page, ‘like’ us (assuming of course that you do) and tell your ‘friends’.

Our first venture into retail shops:
We are pleased to announce that our Monty’s Models range of figures is now available at Rochester Games Models and Railways. The lineside accessories should be available there soon. Rochester Games Models and Railways’ new shop can be found at 21 Corporation Street, Rochester, Kent. For more details visit their Facebook page.
