Welcome to Gladiator Model Kits.  We are a specialist ''O'' Gauge, 7mm, 1:43 manufacturer. We produce a large range of high quality products suitable for the beginner right the way through to the experienced model builder.

Thanks to all who came and said 'Hello' at the Gauge 0 Guild Doncaster show. We managed to produce H1's, H2's, King Arthurs and S15's for the show so had nearly the complete range of Southern locos available. We have sold out of S15's but will restock for Telford, when the Schools will also be available. We have also produced the B1, B16/1, C13 and SDX kits.

We will be ordering stock for Telford in the next week, so if you have any request for a currently out-of-stock item to be available, please let us know. At present we will have the following ex-GCR kits ready for Telford: B2, B4, B7, B8 and C4. For NER we will have the J21, J25 and Q6. For LMS we will have the Prince of Wales, British Legion, Duchess, Princess and Fowler tendered 8F locos.

We will also be introducing the LBSCR ballast wagon and the long out of stock LNWR D87 van.

The N8/N9 has production problems and is significantly delayed.

We have received many requests concerning the sale of components. We are happy to do so and are building up stocks. When catalogued we will update this site to show what is available, but if there are specific parts that you require, please let us know.

We have updated the section on instruction copies.

We are still  looking for photos of completed models to use as artwork on the boxes and on this site. If you would like your model to be used, please let us know.

Our locomotive, coach and wagon kits are mainly supplied in 18 thou brass etches with most frames and valve gear in 28 or 22 thou nickel-silver etches. All boilers are supplied pre-rolled and full instructions are included. Castings are lost wax brass and nickel-silver and whitemetal. We also offer a large range of lost wax brass, lost wax nickel-silver, white metal and turned parts for customers who wish to scratch build or indeed upgrade products from other manufacturers.
