These guys are a little garage firm doing white metal vehicles in British N Gauge.  That works out at 1/148, so very useful for 1/144 dioramas.

It's all equimpent used by British Forces, both armour and support vehicles.  I picked up a Land Rover and Leyland Sherpa van at Telford, they're very nicely cast for the size.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Liking that resource, not much british military kit readily available in U.K.
Spent months trying to get hold of the Dragon Challenger and Warrior kits.

Something i'll try and remember when i come to finish my C-17

Brought some of thier vehicles a few years ago. VERY nicely done and build up well.

Got the landie cleaned up last night and the major parts together (all three of them!).  I like working with white metal, it takes a bit of cleaning up but turns out nice.  I'll start on the Sherpa tonight, I'll post pics when both are done.

I'd argue that this 1/144 kit looks better than the JB Models/Airfix 1/76 kit.
