July 10th 2017Work on the GER 2-4-0 Little Sharpie test build continues etches and lost wax fittings are now in stock to complete the test build. We are hoping to have a semi-kit and or a built sample of the loco available to view at the Gauge O Guild Show in September.

July 10th 2017 We have decided to re release the 6W GCR brake van. A one piece resin body will be produced with new roof , we will use the existing etched chassis produced by GP Models . We are hoping this kit will be available early next year .

July 10th 2017After assessing the Barnum coach kits we have decided to upgrade the coach bogies . New artwork and a new tool will be produced to accommodate these changes and new lost wax fittings will be produced for the springs , axleboxes and dampers .When test builds are done we will assess the coach roof and a new preformed roof will be considered . With these upgrades on going and sourcing other items for the coaches it is not envisaged that the coaches will be available as kits before October.

May 4th 2017 – Work has started on releasing the GER 2-4-0 Little Sharpie as a semi-kit this will be the first project for release , along side this work has started on releasing the Barnum coaches from the GP Models range . There will be no page update for the Sharpie or a new page created for the Barnums until the kits are ready for release .Updates will be posted here on latest news and on various forums .

May 4th 2017 – MBS are pleased to annouce they have aquired the GP Models range formally marketed by the late Garth Patrick. Over time some of the documents,fittings and masters from the range have gone so work is required on these issues to enable the kits to be re released. The tools from the range have had to be withdrawn from the etchers that Garth used ( a restructoring drive on there part ) the tools will be sent to the etcher that I already use but there will inevitably be a delay before I get etches intially for test builds then for the kits themselves. Kits to be released from the original range will be the Clayton Railcar and Trailer, Barnum Coaches-third/brake-all third and the 0-6-0 J63. The wagon range will be assessed and a decision on release made at a later date .

May 4th 2017 – All our major customer commissions have been completed over the winter months no major commissions are planned until the end of the year so  MBS  now have time to devote to upgrading the GER Little Sharpie and the Midland Well Tank etches to semi-kits as described on our about page .There will be an update in latest news and on various forums when the upgrades are complete.

Oct 31st 2016 – Misc Sales items added . The kits for sale are from my own personal collection. These items are not part of the MBS range so there sales are dealt with differently. If you would like to purchase please follow the ordering criteria explained at the top of the Misc Sales page Thanks.
