Welcome  to the Motor Museum in Miniature.

A unique display of model road and race cars.

   Feel free to stroll through our halls and enjoy the world of motor cars, motor racing and building model cars.

 The Motor Museum in Miniature

   As you move through the museum you will find many fine models, scratchbuilt and highly detailed. But you will also come across models that may not appear as impressive. This is for two very good reasons.

   Firstly some of the models are very old now and reflect the level of knowledge and equipment available to the modeller at that time. Modelling supplies have come a long way from the era of tube glue and brushed on enamel paints. Part of the museum's philosophy is to show how much things have changed in the modelling world as well as in the motoring world, so some of our exhibits remain as they were first built, period pieces, a testament to the modelling technology of the time. 

   Secondly we want all our visitors to know that we didn't start off with some natural talent to deliver high quality model cars, we had to start as novices and learn just like everyone else. We are not afraid to show you our "lesser" models, or admit our mistakes, because we want you to feel encouraged to keep trying. It's easy to say 'if I can do it, so can you', but there was a time when we both looked at other peoples models and said 'I could never do that'.

   Well we did do it, and so can you. Of course we still make mistakes and we are never totally happy with a model, but that is the spur that keeps us all trying that bit harder with the next model we build.

   A word of warning though, when the drive for 100% accuracy and perfection start taking the fun out of modelling, take a step back and have a good think about things. We start making models we like for the pleasure they give us, it is a hobby for most of us and it's our standards we should measure ourselves against. As long as you're happy with your model if somebody else comes along and enjoys it too, that's an additional bonus.

   Enjoy your modelling,     Rod and Ian

New for January 2020

Happy New Year to all our visitors.

The feature model this month is a French classic, with British twist.
 Already represented in their other forms this story has so many different aspects as to be well worth telling.

1928 Bugatti T35B

   Recognised by all car enthusiasts the Type 35 series won more motor races, across more formats, than any other type of racing car. 
   It is also a car that has worn so many different liveries as so many drivers from other around the world put their countries colours on their car.
   However, one particular Type 35B embodies all the different aspects that make a car an icon. This car has history, was driven by top Grand Prix drivers of the day, won one of the worlds top three greatest races and then still managed to remain as original as it is possible for a car to be when it is over 80 years old.
Remember, our 1958-62 Morris Minor are available worldwide, through us directly or on ebay. The first run of MkI Cortina kits is sold out but we expect new stock early in 2021.
Also now on sale is the first of our driver figures series.

 Follow our current projects on FaceBook, the motor museum in miniature is waiting to show you what we are up to. Watch us going through the build processes, warts and all, till the finished article makes the step up to this site.
