Welcome to Silver Crest Models Limited.

Over the last 100 years model engineers have dedicated themselves to the design and build of exhibition standard one-off working models. The finest of these survive in the hands of proud family members, private collectors or as exhibits in leading museums.

Of course, a quality model that has taken many thousands of hours to build is a rare item. Today, due to years of decline in the number of time served engineers, it is more difficult than ever to find that special model - and even if you can the prices are often very high.

It is our aim to create a range of exhibition standard working models for the discerning collector. Built by traditional methods our models are typically limited editions subject to one off batch manufacture. While a hand-built model can never be cheap we deliver exceptional value for money. Relative scarcity and affordability is an attractive combination for collectors who seek a secure investment in addition to the pleasure of ownership.

We understand that enthusiasts and collectors have wide and varied interests.

To this end it is our intention, over time, to introduce models for live steam railway enthusiasts, military models, cars, boats and aircraft.

At the present time we have an exclusive and growing range of Gauge 3 live steam models (we also act as the main UK distributor for the Bowande range of Gauge 1 models). The Spring of 2015 will see the introduction of our first ready-to-run 5 inch gauge model.

Our live steam range is offered under the "Kingscale" name.

Summer 2015 will see the launch of the first subject in our "Battletrax" range of 1/10th scale military models. These all metal, radio controlled, vehicles will have the option of a unique electronic battle simulator providing for multi-player game play at ranges of 200m+.

2016 will see the introduction of a 1/5th scale car model with working internal combustion engine. The car range will be offered under the "Silver Crest Classics" name.
