Forward Models - Modelling Birmingham's fine buses
Announcing our B-type bus commemorating World War 1
We are pleased to announce our B-type bus from WW1. Dozens were commandeered by the War Department in 1914, sent to France and painted khaki. Our model is a reapint of the Oxford Diecast models, with detailing added by hand. Model may vary from photograph.

Also available are three versions of field ambulances.

These are code 3 repaints of Lledo models and are hand-finished. You can order through this website but please be aware that delivery will not be until Christmas.

Five new bus models are now available, including three from fleets further north!

Bundy clock and bus stop
An unmistakeable piece of street furniture during the 1950s and 1960s was the ‘Bundy Clock. These were time recorders and each bus conductor carried their own so they could record the progress of their journey.
    Forward Models will be producing scale versions to add to your layout, along with a bus stop and bus shelter, all in typical BCT style and colours.
    Buy them as a kit to paint and finish yourself.
