Welcome to DORSET MODEL BUSES

We are very pleased to be able to bring you our website so that you can see full details of the products we have to offer the bus and coach modeller - together with a range of items of equal use to modellers in other fields such as railway modelling.

The pages in the Model Omnibus section that have been added show full details of the products from M-O that are now available or under development for introduction during 2018 and onwards.

The M-O product range, although developed and manufactured independently of DMB (although we do have a certain input in the ‘ideas department’!) is available exclusively from DMB.

We have separated our ‘LATEST PRODUCT NEWS’ and ‘WEBSITE’ NEWS onto their own pages to make them easier to find - use the yellow button/’drop-down’ menu at left-hand side.(PRODUCT news updated 05-07-18)

We have also added new sections to the website that will not be simply ‘sales’ related but will, we hope, prove to be of interest and use to many bus and coach modellers, whether our Customers or not.

These new sections / pages will be developed over the months as time and projects permit - we hope you enjoy them.

The big improvement we have made to this update is that the listings for the FLEETMASTER Authentic Bus Colours & ‘Extra’ colours have been totally redesigned to make the list far clearer and easy to use - the current availability of listed colours is shown and where a ‘date of introduction’ for new releases is known this will be shown against the relevant colour detail - changing to ‘In Stock’ as soon as that colour is actually ‘on the shelf’ and available to order. Likewise if a previously released colour were to go temporarily Out of Stock this will be shown in the listing to save you ordering that colour until it is available again. Whilst we will try to prevent released colours going Out of Stock as far as possible if this should happen the replenishment of stock will normally be 3 - 4 weeks maximum - although often much quicker.

The improved layout of the paint listing has been extended to the MODELWORKS product range as well.

DORSET MODEL BUSES specialises in products and parts for the modeller of buses and coaches in 4mm scale (1/76).

We have several different product ranges either available now or under development for future release - these will be announced on this website and in other media closer to the date of their introduction.

Our own major product is the FLEETMASTER  range of Authentic Bus Livery Colours, a large selection of which are now available from stock. Further colours  are to be added to this range in due course  - for full details  please go to the FLEETMASTER section of the website by using the button below left.

Other products in the MODELWORKS range are equally suitable for modellers in other fields such as railway modelling - hence the name.

We are also now the exclusive seller of the Model Omnibus range of conversion parts & decals developed by a long-time bus modeller - see below for more on this exciting development.

Latest Product News  update : 17 JULY 2018 -  please use yellow ‘LATEST NEWS’ button at left-hand side

Several new additions to the FLEETMASTER range now in stock  -  see product news

Also now available are new decal sets for S.E.L.N.E.C. / Greater Manchester / Lancashire United (GMT era only)

The Model Omnibus Bristol VRT / ECW to Daimler Fleetline / ECW (as supplied mainly, but not exclusively to the Scottish Bus Group) conversion sets in cast polyurethane resin are now in the first stage of actual production and will be released in August. We intend to build up a stock from the first production run before we announce their availablitiy so that , all things being equal we can keep them in stock at all times.

Please refer to the Model Omnibus pages of the website for fuller details of this exiting development.

Please do not confuse the new Model Omnibus kits with some parts that we are told were offered on Ebay last year that were inferior copies of another persons whitemetal items - these poor quality items were , we are told, cast in the very brittle polyester resin and suffered from the well known problem with polyester of a permanent ‘stickyness’ - this happens when polyester is allowed to cure with a surface in ‘air-contact’.

The new Model Omnibus kits are cast in high-quality POLYURETHANE RESIN which gives a strong, clean and easy to work casting.
