• Changes to our postal and packing rates

    Dear Customer, after 7 years of keeping our flat-rate p & p rates the same, we have reluctantly had to increase our standard rates.  Royal Mail increase their tariffs year on year and for Europe and Canada/USA, these rates have been climbing steadily but to a lesser extent, the Rest of the World.  We have been absorbing the extra costs but feel we now  have to make some increase to these rates.  We have also added a second layer of p & p so that customers who prefer their packages to be tracked now have that option.

  • COVID-19

    Dear Customers, due to the  Covid-19 situation, the UK has now gone into lockdown.  NM&B is still alive and is endeavouring to complete and despatch all orders on hand at this moment.  At present postal services are still live and we hope that your packages will reach you.  Our site will remain open but as our manufacturer has gone into hibernation, we will only be able to fill orders for which we have stock.  We do not mind if you wish to continue to place orders but we will not be able to process them until the lockdown situation has been lifted.

    We wish you well and keep safe in these unprecedented times.  We look forward to doing business with you as soon as we are able.

    Best wishes to all

  • Triton 1/1250 New York Harbour Piers -New items!

    We have just added three new models in this range:  NY7, NY8 and NY9.  The most famous New York piers -see our NY1-6 were the huge piers used by the iconic superliners.  However, most of the many piers that served New York had more modest dimensions whilst still being quite impressive.  These piers were used by merchant liners and cargo ships to discharge their loads.  The three piers introduced are typical of these smaller piers and not only served New York but were built in all large seaports worldwide.  Our models are cast in resin, measure 139mm x 39mm and are available painted and unpainted (£25.00 and £15.00 respectively).

  • Meridian Trafalgar 1/700 range

    We posted the news a little while ago about three of our ships being available in resin cast hulls: HMS Victory, HMS Royal Soveriegn, HMS Agamemnon.  We now have Redoutable available with plans to introduce more as soon as possible.

  • Meridian Trafalgar 1/700 range

    We now have our first three ships available with resin cast hulls :  HMS Victory, Agamemnon and  Royal Sovreign.  This has enabled us to adjust the price of each kit and also re-configure the contents.    Kits for each ship are now priced at £24.00 regardless of whether the hulls are metal or resin; as metal hull stocks reduce they will be replaced with resin models.  Another way of reducing the price of the kits has been to make the etched brass sails an optional extra.  Each kit comes with assembly instructions and sails template.  The brass sails are available in our Components section.
