The Finecast range of white metal kits fall into five groups. The first to appear in 1958 were the locomotive kits, which have been gradually added to over the last three decades. They were joined by a range of 1(24 scale model car kits called AUTO KITS. A new range of highly detailed 1/24 scale car kits were introduced together with a small range of 1/43 scale car kits. The final group are the 1/32 scale gauge 1 Steam Traction engine range.
Since taking over production of the FINECAST white metal kits in 1988, South Eastern Finecast has added several new models to the range. A programme of renovation and updating was also commenced on the locomotive and car ranges. All revised locomotive and tender kits now include etched chassis and an increased number of detailed parts. Where possible one piece parts such as boilers and smokeboxes are now incorporated.
Because of the wide selection available, wheels, axles, crankpins, motors and gears are not included with the locomotive kits. However, we can supply a range of these items.
Other products produced are the range of FLUSHGLAZE windows and Turntable kits.
South Eastern Finecast have also produced a range of vacumn formed brick sheets ideal for scratch builders and kit-bashers. it is produced for 4, 7,and 10mm. scales and is supplied in white.
We can supply all castings and components as spare parts.
Finecast kits are available from selected model shops and model agents throughout the United Kingdom and from model importers throughout the world. However should you have difficulty obtaining our products, please contact our sales department at Forest Row for more information
