News and Updates

21 June 2019. New 3D-printed manufacturer: CGNScale.

18 April 2019. New 3D-printed manufacturer: Outland Models. There's also a new Merten set, car mechanics, and a new manufacturer with one product, Kitlatren.

19 February 2019. New 3D-printed manufacturer: Old West Scenery.

17 February 2019. Ken Jones and Markus Schiavo have contributed to a big update this month: six new Noch sets; three new items from Artitec; a new Preiser set; and two new manufacturers, ML Designs (the first Canadian shop) and Frykmodell.

2 January 2019. Added perhaps one of the most obscure manufacturers in the world: TfA:s Hobbytjänst.

16 December 2018. Seven new Scenecraft sets added.

10 December 2018. I found a couple more Cromer Models kits. Also, thanks to Ken Jones, I've added a new company: Invictascene.

24 November 2018. New 3D-printed manufacturer: Smart Models.

22 November 2018. Thanks to Ken Jones of the UK, there are many updates, starting with a new manufacturer—the first from Down Under—Kerroby. In other news, there are more new RailNScale items, as well as a few new-old ones for Rustic Rails.

11 September 2018. Added many new images to the Noch page.

5 September 2018. Showcase Miniatures has been added to the manufacturers list. Also added two new products for EtchIT-Modellbau.

13 August 2018. Two new Noch items, 38402 and 63616, and one new Preiser item, 79228.

27 July 2018. Thank you, Harald, for catching my goof.

30 June 2018. Four more new RailNScale items: campers with accessories and tents.

17 June 2018. Because the market is quite fluid, 3D-printed figures have now been split off with their own page. Sifting through ~45,000 N Scale products looking for figures will take me a while, so expect this list to grow over time.

30 May 2018. Thanks once again to Markus Schiavo, the database has a new company: Kestrel Designs.

19 May 2018. Three more new RailNScale items: two vans with figures, and a delivery man.

29 April 2018. RailNScale has five new items: boutique storefront with mannequins, taxi with passenger getting out, two sets of kiosks with vendors, and locomotive engineers.

19 April 2018. Finally caught up with a backlog of new figures for Model Tech Studios, and added images of all their items. Also added new sets for Kobaru, Pro Hobby and Tomytec. Plus we have a newcomer, Mick Yarrow Miniatures.

19 February 2018. Been a while since I've made any updates; Markus Schiavo has helped out once again. Faller has six new sets for 2018, most or all of which are just recycled older sets in new paint schemes. Noch also has six new sets, some of them featuring ultra-detailed painting. Preiser has one new set, as does Artitec. And finally, we have a newcomer, Modellbahn Union, with a single seasonal product.

8 November 2017. Markus Schiavo is doing my job. New products added for Noch (5), Pro Hobby/Icom (6) and Tsugawa (4).

24 October 2017. A new vendor, Schöenwitz Modellbau Technik, has been added, although they may simply be a reseller of Model-Lights products (in which case they may be removed at some point).

23 October 2017. The number of items with figures from RailNScale has more than quadrupled, and it will likely continue to grow quickly.

10 October 2017. Did some research into clones of Roskopf's horse-drawn wagons.

17 September 2017. The database has had a massive bump in product count with the addition of Modelu.

10 September 2017. Minitrix is back on the list again with a possibly OOP product.

9 September 2017. Added images to the military and wargaming figures. Also added a dozen or so new images elsewhere.

17 August 2017. Started work on a separate section for military and wargaming figures.

16 August 2017. During a search of European manufacturers, I stumbled across VEB Harzer Schmuck Quedlinburg (quite the mouthful).

14 August 2017. Thanks to The Railwire, I've added Andrew C Stadden. Also added a links page.

7 August 2017. Discovered two more old detail casting companies in the UK, Graham Avis Details and D&M. Also, I decided to remove Minitrix from the listing, as it would appear their figures aren't even close to N Scale, even though the train they accompany is—go figure.

30 July 2017. New addition Model-Lights offers 86 lighted figures and vehicles with figures!

27 July 2017. Thanks once again to Markus Schiavo, the database has acquired two new manufacturers (Artitec and Kehi Modellbau), as well as another dozen new items. I've also added a bunch of new product photos of Tomytec dioramas.

14 July 2017. Discovered yet another manufacturer in Germany, Marks.

13 July 2017. Stumbled across two more sources, Microlife and Trafofuchs.

12 July 2017. Thanks to Markus Schiavo (N Scale Vehicles), the database has acquired four new manufacturers (DeAgostini, MEK, NModell and Rolfs Laedchen) and dozens of new items.

1 July 2017. Added a half-dozen items to the Langley line, as well as all images. Also added many images to the P&D Marsh line.

24 June 2017. The website was launched.
