    Check out the "Ilario" section on the site to see a stunning selection of superbly handcrafted, exquisitely detailed beautiful models.

    Hand-built by artisan model producer Ilario Chiera from France, the models are miniature works of art.

    Limited to just 170 -180 pieces worldwide, they are extremely rare and will add a touch of elegance to your collection.

    Take a look at the New Minimarque section on the site, to see some beautiful renditions of those all-time favourite, British sports cars - the MGB and the MGC.

     

    The models are hand-built in white metal, exquisitely detailed, of superb quality and beaitifully presented.

     

    Each model is a LIMITED EDITION of just 50, in its particular colour scheme, with its edition number stated on its plinth.

     

    They are all open roadsters.

     

    Beautiful models of an all-time favourite. I used to own a 1967 MGB roadster in Yellow Ochre with a black interior, reg no: WTU 262E.

    Ahhh, those were the days - before the baby came along and reduced me to a Volkswagen Beetle... :-(

    Silas models come along like British buses - you wait ages for one, then three come at once!!!

     

    More fantastic news just received from Frederic is that the 1952 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR is reaching the final stages of assembly and will be along soon!

     

    The model will be available in three colour schemes:

     

    Metallic steel grey with Burgundy red interior...

    Old English White with beige interior...

    Dark Indigo blue with pale blue interior.

     

    It will also be offered in hood up or hood down versions, making a total of six fantastic models!

     

     

    PHOTOS OF ALL SIX MODELS CAN NOW BE SEEN IN THE "SILAS MODELS" SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE.

     

     

    Don't forget though, as always with SILAS, the models will be strictly LIMITED EDITIONS therefore early pr-ordering is advised.

     

    The SILAS Jensen CV8 model sold out at a rapid rate and a lot of collectors were left disappointed.

     

    Anyone wishing to pre-order the 1952 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR can phone me on 01244 320761 or email me on bhm-uk@talktalk.net to be guaranteed receiving the model/s of your choice.

     

    Payment is not required until the models have arrived into stock and are ready to be despatched to you.

     

    So get your skates on!

  4.  

    A unique model, from Frederic of Silas Models, has just arrived:

     

    the 1964 Vauxhall Viva HA de Luxe, shown in one of its export variants as the Vauxhall Epic.

     

    The model is LHD and features French number plates.

     

    As usual, with Silas models, it is exquisitely detailed, beautifully presented and of superb quality.

     

    A unique rendition of an extremely rare car, it deserves a place in your collection!

     

    However, only 200 of this LIMITED EDITION will be produced (100 in each colour scheme).

     

    Regards to all.

     

    Frank.

  5.  

    The BMC Farina models were first announced by Silas for production in 2011.

     

    Owing to manufacturer problems, the project was put on a back burner to allow other Silas products to go into production.

    Demand for these three models, 1962 MG Magnette Mk IV, 1962 Riley 4/72 & 1959 Wolseley 15/60, on pre-orders was amazing. Many customers were frustrated and very disappointed when the models failed to materialise.

     

    NOW - it gives me great pleasure to announce that the BMC Farina project is definiitely back on. Pre-production prototypes are being paint-tested and assembled for final fit.

     

    I am hoping it won't be too long now before the models are on the way to us.

    As always with Silas Models, these will be strictly LIMITED EDITIONS and will follow the pattern of 3 colour choices.

     

    THE ORDER BOOK IS NOW OPEN!!!

     

    To reserve your models, go to the SILAS section on this website, choose which colours/models you wish to pre-order then phone me ASAP to reserve your models.

     

    You are advised to do this as early as possible to avoid disappointment, when the models sell out.

    You may phone me on 01244 320761 or email me at bhm-uk@talktalk.net to place your priority PRE-ORDER. That will guarantee that you get your models.
