Established in 2015, Bowaters Models is rapidly growing into one of the best 16mm kit designers in the United Kingdom. We produce rolling stock and motive power kits which are 16mm:ft scale (1:19) and operate on 32mm and 45mm gauge track. With a rapidly growing range and further expansion planned, Bowaters Models will be cementing its place as one of the leading kit manufacturers in the scale in years to come.

Our kits are predominately of MDF construction, making use of 3D printing where appropriate, to produce a model that is both affordable and easy to build. All kits come complete with bogies in the gauge of your choice, and Accucraft chopper couplings as standard. Our motive power kits only require electrics and batteries to produce a working model using a chassis from either PDF Models or IP Engineering. All kits are available without these items on request.
