About The Model Centre

We will not compromise on quality.

Locomotive Weathering and Rolling Stock Weathering Specialists. Full range of Bachmann, Graham Farish, Woodland Scenics, Scenecraft, Skaledale, Heljan, Oxford Diecast, Gaugemaster, Hornby, Dapol, DCC Concepts, Deluxe Materials, Exclusive First Editions (EFE) and many more!

The Model Centre (TMC) is a small family run business. Our close-knit team includes railway modellers and dedicated railway enthusiasts, all of whom endeavour to provide you with the premium service and expert standards that we are associated with today.

Here at TMC we specialise in custom finish models. Custom finish models can include anything from a simple weathering, to renaming and renumbering locomotives and rolling stock. We pride ourselves on the consistent professional finish achieved on every model. Click here to view our Gallery.

We can be found in the small village of Beck Hole, which is located within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Our prime location is situated within walking distance of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway line, where steam trains run regularly throughout the year.

We are very proud of the superb finish we are able to achieve and want you to be completely happy with your models. Our aim is to attain factory finish on every occasion, something we have done since 1998.
