I have bought those white metal models of 1/76 vehicles in the very early 1990s from a company called "Custom Miniatures" which was originally in Surrey in England but moved to Yorkshire later on. I have never seen anyone else mention this company since and I have most of the models. I presume it stopped making the models towards the end of the 1990s, unless anyone knows differently? The models look good once made up, but probably suffer from small inaccuracies - for example they seem to share a common wheel pattern. Otherwise they were a good addition for those collecting soft skins and only used to Airfix conversions...

Who can tell me more about these kits and or company? Were are the moulds? Is there a re-release by another company???
