Due To The Covid 19 Virus Outbreak, We Are Suspending Sending Orders Outside Of The UK Until Further Notice, Due To The Uncertain Nature Of Postal Services Internationally.

We have received a number of enquiries for a driver suitable for the Heljan Class 3 Diesel Shunter since it was recently released.

The S.R. 7mm Group have found that there is no seat in the model, and also no floor in the cab, which caused problems placing the driver!

They have, however, overcome these issues by using our DM322L standing Driver, and inserting a pin into his foot which was then attached to a small box protruding into the cab.

The height of the driver is correct, and his hand rests on the controls.

Since We Started The Business Seven Years Ago, Our Range And Sales Have Increased Steadily Year On Year, To The Degree Where We Have Had To Re-Evaluate What We Are Doing, As Our Current Workload Including Shows Attended Has Reached A Stage Where It Is Now Unsustainable. What Began As A Hobby Has Now Overtaken Our Lives!!

For Health And Well Being Reasons We Will Be Greatly Reducing The Range That We Offer In The New Year, Achieving This By Natural Sales And Generous Price Reductions Of  Discontinued Items At Shows We Attend, And From Time To Time By Opening An eBay Shop. 

As Of 9th December We Have Removed A Large Number Of Figures From Our Website, Which Will Be Offered At A Price Of 3 For £30 In Our Bargain Corner At Bristol And Kettering Shows. When They're Gone They're Gone!!

Our Long Term Intention Will Be To Concentrate Mostly Upon Crews For Locomotives And Station Staff.

We Regret That We Are No Longer Able To Accept Commissions To Paint Figures, Wagon Loads Or Other Items Purchased And Supplied By Clients.


Following The Decision To Move The Dates Of Guildex At Telford In 2020, We Regret We Will Not Be Attending That Event.

Detailed Miniatures supply professionally painted white metal and resin figures in O gauge, 7mm scale, principally for model railway enthusiasts.

We realise that there is a growing demand to populate locomotives, rolling stock, platforms and scenery with realistic figures and scenes depicting everyday railway life, whilst understanding that many have neither the time, materials, ability or indeed the eyesight (!!) to paint commercially available figures to a standard with which they are satisfied.

Figures produced by Detailed Miniatures are obtained from leading suppliers, such as Invertrain's Heroes Of The Footplate, Andrew Stadden, and Modelu3D.

Prior to assembly where necessary, the figures are cleaned of casting marks and flash as far as practicable, before being rigorously cleaned to remove any chemicals used during the manufacture. Each figure receives an enamel primer, before being painted in acrylics utilising up to fourteen ultra thin coats in a blending and layering process to achieve authentic highlights, lowlights and shading, before two coats of a quality matt varnish are applied.

Stock painted "ready to go" is changing constantly. Please see the various pages on this site to view examples of our painted work and pricing, which we believe to be very competitive. 

Please contact us with your requirements, in the knowledge that you will receive a reasonably priced, personal service - we are proud to show a small selection of the many positive comments we have received on our "Testimonials" page.

International orders welcome - postage at cost - see our Ordering page.
