About our Products:

Dart Castings manufactures several ranges of model railway accessories and components, for 4mm scale (OO Gauge) and 7mm scale (O Gauge / 1:43):

This specialised range of 4mm scale etched and cast railway vehicle components is renowned for its quality and fidelity. The MJT series comprises three principle categories; Suspension (compensation) units for rolling stock, etched and cast components for a range of BR (SR) and LNER coaches plus a wide range of fixed and sprung buffers, cosmetic axleboxes, leafsprings and other items for the finescale modeller. The MJT gearbox conversion units for Portescap motors are also available. Click on the MJT Scale Components button for full product range and price list.

The Monty's Models OO Gauge page is the home for the extensive range of 1:76 scale (4 mm to the foot) miniature figures. These figures are suitable for railways modelled to OO, EM or P4 standards as well as dioramas in 1:76 scale. While, as many of our customers will know, some of these figures have been in the range for a long time we are adding to the range all the time. The breadth of the range and the realism of each character makes them ideal for use in many other applications including architectural models, dioramas, military modelling and with model vehicles. The greater part of the range is suitable for the 1930's to early 1950's period (although some may be suitable for early 1960's). A recent addition is a range of Modern Image figures to the same high standard. Click on the Monty's Models OO Gauge button for full product range and price list.


Based on the continuing success of the Monty's Models OO gauge range, a while ago we ventured into figures for O Gauge. Initially, a few railway staff were supplemented by some less specialised figures borrowed from the TRACKPASS 1:43 scale range of predominantly automotive subjects. Both the Monty’s Models O Gauge range and the TRACKPASS range are featured in the Monty’s Models O Gauge page. All of the figures are the correct size for O Gauge (1:43 scale, 7 mm to the foot) but would be equally at home in any 1:43 scale diorama.

The TRACKPASS range of 1:43 scale (7mm) figures features various characters that might be found at motor sport events; drivers, photographers, spectators, etc. Primarily intended to complement the extensive range of 1:43 scale racing cars, rally cars and general paraphernalia to be found at motor racing venues, it is anticipated that they will appear in dioramas depicting the motor racing scene from the 1950s onward. Modellers may, however, find that some of the figures can be used more widely. Click on the Trackpass button for full product range and price list.


Shire Scenes is a manufacturer of etched brass kits which support the model railway/model landscape hobbies. The kits are are avaialable to a scale of 4mm to 1ft (00 gauge) and also 2mm to 1ft (N gauge). The kits are best described as 'origami in sheet brass' except that they are generally far more simple than the Japanese paper-folding craft. Kits may be assemblesd with super-glue avoiding the need for soldering skills. Etched brass is ideal where delicate detail is essential or where thin metal sheet or plywood is a medium on the prototype. The range includes horse drawn vehicles, street/platform furniture and the well known range of GWR coach sides for 4/6 wheel vehicles.

Shire Scenes also produce some Z gauge kits and kits specific to the European/US scale of 3.5mm to 1 ft (H0) but these are not available online from Dart Castings.
