About NBR 4mm Developments

NBR 4mm Developments sells a range of Locomotive Chassis Kits, Wagon Kits and Detailing Etches for the 4mm modeller specialising in rolling stock from the North British Railway Company but with practical applications for other Railway Companies. This range was formerly released by Eastfield Models but has been unavailable for several years.

Chassis Kits are in 22 thou Nickel Silver. They can be assembled rigid or compensated but will require the additional purchase of hornblocks for the latter.

Locomotive Parts etches are in 22 thou, 0.55mm Nickel Silver.

Wagon Kits are in whitemetal with 11 thou brass floor and detailing.

Brake Van Kits are in 0.3mm (11 thou) brass with whitemetal castings and brass wire.

Wagon Parts etches are in 11 thou brass. The recently introduced wagon number plates are in 12 thou brass.

Please note that some items are not yet held in stock as the range is still being assembled but that notes of interest will be taken in those which are still to be released and will influence the speed at which they become available.

You can now order and pay for your purchases with PayPal.

BRAKE VANS - I have again in stock the Goods Brake Vans 9105/6/7/8. For 9106/7/8 the options box is supposed to show under "Choose axlebox type" Grease or Oil but for some reason is not. Best to email me your preference. The quantities of etches and castings are limited though. (12/01/21)

The photo-tool for Goods Brake Vans 9110 (Dia.32B) & 9109 (Dia.36B) had a couple of errors where the hatching had "bled" and will need correcting before they are ready to be released. (12/01/21)

My first (and probably only!) attempt at a white-metal wagon kit has been test built. There is an issue with the ends which make the wagon too wide, easily sorted with a few strokes of a file but I need to decide if expecting the purchaser to do this fix is acceptable. This kit is for the :NBR Dia.81; LNER SSA Dia.4B, 3 plank centre door open, 8’0” width. (10/03/19)

I have taken the decision not to progress the development of chassis kits 9206 & 9207 for the GEM Scott and Glen. These had been on the back burner for many years and I could not come up with a satisfactory design which takes into account the foibles of a 4-4-0 chassis supporting a heavy and unbalanced white-metal body.
