About Me

Essex Models & Miniatures is something a bit different, although mainly a hobby, I have altered, built and renovated many models for other people over the years. Now I have decided to record what I do with pictures and give an insight into what I do and collect, although mainly model diecast cars and trucks, my interests are diverse and span many other models and toys too.

Set up in 2011, the main focus of this blog is on my own vast collection of diecast models that I have been collecting for years and regularly upgrade and add to, my interest goes past the model and I will be listing all variations I know of and the history of not only the model but the real thing too.

My aim was to provide a directory of diecast on here as well as other projects I am involved in, including Scalextric slot cars, model trains and scenery building, if your into modeling or transport of any form you should find something of interest here.

Please note; I don’t do repairs or repaints for other people any longer due to lack of time.
