Does anyone have an idea of whether independent niche fillers are thriving?

It's good to see these models becoming available again - even I can find uses for some of the range.

I think the niche market is still very much a thriving area, especially in the area of scenic and electrical accessories. Unfortunately the small firms that made detailing parts for diesel outline models seem to be dissappearing with the ever finer detailing being added to rtr stock. However the manufacturers of resin bodies for the oddities like electric and steam stock do seem to be on the up and up!

That's the name, they've probably got a Southern bias as that's where they come from!


Seriously Golden Arrow do some very good models, and I always have a chat when I see them at shows.
