Forward Models - Celebrating the 'Birmingham Standard' bus
A few of our products
 
I set up Forward Models to produce models of the Birmingham Standard buses I grew up with. I also wanted to support the people who have preserved these vehicles and the museums which look after them.
    I am pleased to announce that the first models are now at the pre-production stage - three models of a Guy Arab 'New Look' and two models of exposed radiator Crossleys. Models are due in summer 2012.
    Soon you too can own one of these iconic buses, at 1:76 (OO gauge). At the same time you will support bus preservation, and promote Birmingham’s transport museums.
