Welcome to the DORSET MODEL BUSES website.

Our website gives details of our products (both currently in production and planned for future introduction) together with ordering details.

You will also find details of Exhibitions & Shows that our Sales Stand will be attending.

We have substantially revised this website as of SUNDAY 22nd July 2018.

In the coming weeks this version of our website will be replaced by an illustrated listing of our products without the information sections.

In future all new product news will be announced both on this website and our ‘back-up’ Facebook Group (see below)

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 the only seller of the Model Omnibus range of conversion parts & decals in this growing range - see the M-O pages for more on the developments and releases in this range.

Product News  update : 17 JULY 2018

Now available are decal sets for S.E.L.N.E.C. (All Divisions) / 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 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.

Latest Product News  update : 22 JULY 2018

The FLEETMASTER paint range listing has been fully revised to bring it up-to-date as of today.

The listing now shows all currently available colours including two that were not previously listed but have been added to the range due to requests from customers.

We have removed some formerly proposed colours as these no longer (at present at least) feature in our planning for the future.


Due to several factors OmniDecals has decided to cease offering a bespoke decal printing service once current orders are completed.

The ‘stock’ range will continue to build up over the next few months and will be fully detailed on the new website. The fleetnames will be joined by other items such as decals for service vehicles and driver training vehicles.

We are also exploring the possibility of producing a number of advert sets for the sides of buses - both old and modern.
