KIRTLEY MODEL BUILDINGS

Welcome to the Kirtley Model Buildings website. I specialise in handbuilt model buildings in all scales and model railway scenery and dioramas in all scales from 4mm scale to Gauge 3. 

BOOKS.

All my books can be purchased from Amazon and I always have a selection on my trade stand at shows.

They cannot be purchased from this website as I do not keep a stock of all the titles.
