About North Western Models

At North Western Models we believe that it’s the detail that brings a model railway to life.

North Western Models was established in 2015 by Kevin Colley and Christopher Gore as an online model shop based in Stockport, Cheshire. Initially dealing with high quality detailing accessories and kits, North Western Models prides itself in serving the model railway community to promote the notion that detailing helps to bring a model railway to life.

In September 2016, North Western Models was a winner of Small Business Sunday (#SBS) which is run by former Dragons’ Den star, Theo Paphitis. Christopher and Kevin initially met with Mr Paphitis in Birmingham in February 2017 to receive their award which recognises and celebrates successful small businesses and entrepreneurs within the UK. They continually work alongside other small businesses within Mr Paphitis’ #SBS circle to develop their model railway business and to drive forwards with full steam ahead!
