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.

*** Update 14 April. We have just received a new batch of brass castings and are restocking. The B16, D10, J11, U1, 2P, Caley 812, LNWR 0-8-4T  and Stanier Mogul kits are now back in stock. Other loco kits will follow this week. We are still waiting for resin castings for some wagon kits.  ***

All items priced at £20 and over are supplied post free to UK addresses. Orders totalling less than £20 are charged at £2.50 for post and packing. Please contact us for charges for international delivery. Although we post worldwide with no issues, we are presently unsure if we can deliver to EU countries. Please contact us before placing an order.

Purchases made through this website can be made by credit or debit card. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, cheque or cash please email or phone us. We regret that we cannot accept credit or debit card payments by phone or mail. Following a substantial increase in bank charges for processing cheques, we regret that we must impose a minimum order charge of £20 if you wish to pay by cheque. 

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 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. We can supply all-nickel silver etches by special request. The premium for this is between £25 and £75 per kit. 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.

Wheels, pick-ups, paint, gear sets and motors are not included in our kits.
