WELCOME TO DART CASTINGS

The Dart Castings Range
The Dart Castings range includes cast scenic detailing accessories and horse drawn vehicles in 4mm/1ft (00) scale.

The Montys Models Range
The Montys Models range offers a wide variety of high quality cast white metal figures. The 4mm/1ft scale range is joined by an increasing selection of figures for 7mm/1ft (O) and 2mm/1ft (N).

The MJT Range
The MJT range offers a vast selection of detailing items for 4mm/1ft (OO) scale rolling stock.

The Shire Scenes Range
The Shire Scenes range provides a wide selection of etched brass scenic detailing accessories, horse drawn vehicles and GWR coach components for 4mm/1ft (OO) and 2mm/1ft (N) scales.

The Frogmore Confederacy Range
The Frogmore Confederacy range is aimed at GWR modellers working in 4mm/1ft (OO) scale and includes GWR rolling stock kits and specialist parts. p> The Trackpass Range
The Trackpass range of 1:43 scale (7mm) figures features a number of characters that might be found at motor sport events; drivers, photographers, spectators, etc. These figures are primarily intended to complement the extensive range of 1:43 scale racing and rally cars available from various manufacturers.

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.

Trackpass:
We are pleased to announce a new marketing collaboration with Trackpass. While Trackpass will remain a separate entity, the range of figures designed to complement 1:43 scale racing and rally cars will be available from Dart Castings through our website, at exhibitions or by conventional mail order. A few of the Trackpass figures have for a while featured in the Monty’s Models ‘MGV’ ‘O’ Gauge range and will continue to do so. However, starting now, over the next few months the complete Trackpass range will appear under its own Tab on this website.

New items added to range:
New to the Monty’s Models range are some drivers. In 1:43 scale we have a standing Diesel Locomotive Driver (MGV26) while in 1:76 scale we have an Industrial Locomotive Driver (MSV69), again standing, and a Driver for a Wickham Trolley (MSV68).

Newly featured in the MJT range are anLSWR Panter axlebox (2262A)and a 6ft9in J Hanger spring (2262) as used on LSWR 4 wheeled coaches. Relatively 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.

Also relatively new to the MJT range are a low Profile version of the well established Internal Wagon Compensation units (MJT2292 and 2293) and an NEM 362 Coupling Pocket / Tongue (MJT2580) to work with the Rigid Bogie Frames (MJT2553, MJT2556 and MJT2559). 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. 2292 is sized for OO / HO gauge and 2293 for EM / P4 gauge.

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’.

The Electric Railway Museum:
Modellers of electric railways may be aware that the Electric Railway Museum near Coventry is being forced to relocate and is having to find new homes for its fascinating collection of electric stock. They are seeking help and the Suburban Electric Railway Assocation has set up a crowdfunding page here.

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.
