WELCOME TO DART CASTINGS

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

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

The Monty's Models OO Gauge Range
The Monty's Models OO Gauge range of 1:76 scale (4mm to the foot) miniature figures are suitable for railways modelled to OO, EM or P4 standards as well as dioramas in 1:76 scale. We are adding to the range all the time.

The Monty's Models O Gauge Range
Based on the continuing success of the OO gauge range, a while ago we ventured into figures for O Gauge. All of the figures are the correct size for O Gauge (1:43 scale, 7mm to the foot) but would be equally at home in any 1:43 scale diorama.

The Trackpass Range
The TRACKPASS range of 1:43 scale (7mm) figures features various characters that might be found at motor sport events. Primarily intended to complement 1:43 scale racing cars, modellers may find that some of the figures can be used more widely.

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.

Summer Shutdown:
We will not be processing orders between the 12th and 22nd August. The website will be open to accept orders during this period but they will not be processed during the summer shutdown.

A note re payment issues:
We are aware that some customers are having payments rejected or reversed. Please note that at no time do we, Dart Castings, either see, or have access to your payment details; this is handled entirely by PayPal. We have been unable to ascertain from PayPal where the problem lies but we believe it may be as a result of banks now requiring Two-factor Authentication (also known as Strong Customer Authentication or SCA) for all online payments.

If you have a payment reversed, please contact us so that we can make other arrangements for you. Please note that we cannot accept credit/debit card payments over the phone.

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 and the Trackpass range of 1:43 scale motor sport figures. 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 and are supplied unpainted. Please use the tabs at the top of each page to to navigate the site.

New items added to range:
New to the Dart Castings range of domestic and farm animals are a pair of Shorthorn Cows A69A and A69B. These are rather smaller than the Friesian Cows A68A, A68B and A69C which have been in the range for a little while. We have also taken the opportunity to re-number and categorise all the animal figures in the Dart Castings range. Equine figures are now numbered from A1, Wild animals from A31 and Domestic and Farm Animals from A61. If you see the wrong images on the web site following this re-numbering please clear your browser cache and reload the page.

Two new figures have been added to the Montys 1:76 range. Both are RAF flight crew from the World War 2 era. The first, MMP1, is standing, relaxed wearing a flight jacket and a scarf. The second, MMP2, is seated and designed to fit into the cockpit of a 1:72 scale aeroplane. In fact it was particularly designed to fit into the cockpit of the Airfix ™ Spitfire and so might need a little ímodificationí to fit the cockpit of another aircraft. As can be seen we have created a new category - MMP (Montys Military Personnel) to accommodate the growing number of military figures in the range. Over the course of time we will migrate all of the existing military figures into the new category.

We now have the 'long awaited' GCR Fox 10 ft 6 in cosmetic bogie sides MJT 2417. These bogies were used on the so called Barnum (after the circus entrepreneur) matchboard coaches which ran on the Great Central and later the LNER. To give a higher quality finished bogie all springs, axle guards, bolster detail, etc. are supplied separately for the modeller to attach. To accompany the sides a new CCU (Coach Compensation Unit) with a 10 ft 6 in wheelbase MJT 2528 has also been introduced. Another new CCU is an 8 ft 9 in version, MJT2518, which is intended specifically for the BR Mk6 Power Bogie; MJT 2447. While the Mk6 Bogie was used extensively on the later 'slam door' EMUs it was also a locomotive bogie - used on the Class 73 electro diesels - and has a taller profile than most coach bogies necessitating a specific CCU.
