Card kits for emergency 999 scenes in 1/76 scale suitable for use on OO gauge model railway layouts and in dioramas for model road vehicles.

The aim has been to provide distinctive buildings which reflect typical British townscapes of the mid to late twentieth century.

The kits are on stout card approximately 1.25mm thick. The parts need to be cut out with a knife and steel rule. Bostik All Purpose adhesive is recommended for assembly. Thinner card is used for some parts. See HERE for what involved in assembling a kit.

Most of the buildings are half relief (they have no back)

All are to 1/76 scale and are based on real buildings.
