About Delta Models
Trains have held my interests for many years from life size to models. I am retired and am happy to be able to devote more time to being in my shop. Previously worked with HO scale for 40 plus years. Now I currently focus on O scale. I enjoy airbrushing and designing new casting in my spare time. Due to health issues of a severe hearing loss all communication is best done through e-mail unless otherwise instructed. Thank you for visiting my site and I look foreword to doing business with you.
We are a one man show when it comes to designing and producing castings and parts. Some times our anticipated release dates will slide depending on how large a project may be. This is true with the RPO Baggage interior parts the DM 507B has 54 parts that comprize this kit. A lot of man hours have gone into thse kits to date.
The reason that this parts line has been created, was that I was building O scale passenger cars for myself. When it came time to add detail parts, they were hard to find and nonexistant. There had been parts done over the years but most had now faded into the woodwork of time. Companies discontinued the products all together. This has been very frustrating not being able to get correct parts for projects that are years old and never may be finished. I have always been a scratch builder and collector.
I have been told that I am in a very niche market with modelers, not wanting to build kits or scracth build cars. So Far what I am seeing is a resurgance by having my product line available. The manufacture and importers that are doing passenger cars are helping my cause, with older ones as well.
We have created a very good web site and produced a very well done catalog, Both have very well detailed photos and descriptions . I strongly believe that you should be able to veiw what you want to purchase by having good information to make a good sound decision. By having these it has helped us reach a new market and get the word out. We are advertising in some very good media outlets as well.
Sales for the last 3 years have been increasing about 25-30% per year.
So we must be doing things right, we listing to our customers for feed back for new parts and plan accordingly.
We are here to stay and are expanding the parts line on a daily and weekly basis. In all we thank you for your support now and in the future. Looking forward to your order soon.
