  2.  

    After two years of consistently being asked by my customers to sell models of cars other than British marques, I am pleased to announce that this decision has now been taken and a sister business has now been brought into operation.

     

    This second business will be know as "World Heritage Models" and the first models to be sold under this umbrella business will be from a brand new, model company known as "Esval Models".

     

    Esval are an American business, based in New York. The models are Limited Edition, and hand built in resin. The quality and finish are superb and you have my wholehearted recommendation regarding these value-for-money models.

     

    As you know, the reputation of British Heritage Models has been built on offering top quality, hand built models at affordable prices. The motto of BHM has always been "Quality, Value, Service..." and this motto is carried over to World Heritage Models. Any model that you buy fron me, you may do so with the COMPLETE CONFIDENCE of knowing that it comes with the British Heritage Models, no-quibble, money-back guarantee.


    A new category, entitled "World Heritage Models" has now been established on this site. Please visit this new category to check out the first models for sale: the 1941 & 1942 Packard 180 7-seater Limousines. I think you will be impressed with them - I certainly am!

     

    Frank.

     

     

     

     

  3.  

     

    It's a bit like buses - you wait ages for one, then three come at once! And here's the first of the three from Silas Models: the 1964 Vauxhall Viva HA de Luxe, in a choice of three, limited edition colours: Grey, Safari beige, and Carnival red.

     

    All three will be on sale from BHM within the next couple of weeks.

     

    The other two imminent arrivals are the Hillman Hunter and the Austin Maxi.

     

    Photos of the Viva can now be seen in the Silas Models category of this website.

  4. MC 05. 1964 HILLMAN SUPER MINX SALOON.

     

    British Heritage Models is pleased to announce the imminent arrival of the latest model in the Majesty Classics range of hand built model cars.

     

    Majesty Classics 05 will be on sale within the next few weeks and is the 1964 Hillman Super Minx saloon. The model will be available in a choice of three x two-tone colours schemes: sky blue with a white roof, dark green/white roof, red/white roof.

     

    The model is superbly hand built and intricately detailed, from the manufacturer who makes the Rolls Royces, Bentleys, and Rover models for BHM.

     

    This premium quality model will come beautifully presented: plinth-mounted (removeable), within a perspex display case, and in the BHM green, leather-look box, which is protected by a matching cardboard sleeve.

     

    It will make a stunning addition to any collection and will appeal greatly to British car enthusiasts, hand built collectors, and, in particular, Rootes fans.

     

    Pictures of the model, prepared for final assembly can be viewed on this website in the British Heritage Models category under "Majesty Classics".

     

    Happy collecting!

    Frank Jones.

  6. NEW RELEASE! 1950 ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM IV, AS OWNED BY HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II.

     

     

    The introduction of the Britannia Collection, from British Heritage Models, has been a resounding success, with sales of the models far higher than anticipated.

     

    The models are hand built replicas of Rolls Royce and Bentley motor cars, and for the first time, a LIMITED EDITION model is about to be added to the range.

     

    Arriving in February 2012, will be a 1:43rd scale replica of the 1950 Rolls Royce Phantom IV, hand built in resin.

     

    The Phantom IV is the rarest of all Rolls Royces, with only eighteen examples having ever been built. Every one of these cars was delivered to a royal family, or Head of State.

     

    The model to be introduced is based on the car that was delivered to The Duke of Edinburgh and Princess Elizabeth, in 1950.

     

    As a private car, it was initially painted in Valentine green. However, on her succession to the throne, in 1952, the car then became an official state car and was resprayed in the Monarch's official colours of claret and black. This is the livery of the Britannia Collection model.

     

    The car is still owned by Her Majesty The Queen, to this day. The car's most recent appearance was on April 29th 2011, when it was one of the vehicles used for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince William to Miss Kate Middleton, now The Duchess of Cambridge.

     

    This new addition to the Britannia Collection is a superbly built rendition. The detailing is exquisite, down to the minute St. George slaying the dragon, bonnet mascot.

     

    The real mascot is owned by Her Majesty the Queen and is transferable from, and to, each car in the royal fleet, and is used to signify that the particular vehicle is currently transporting Her Majesty.

     

    The model will be presented plinth-mounted and encased within a perspex display case. This is then placed within a British Heritage Models green, luxury, grained leather-look box, which is sponge-lined and hinged lidded. The box is then placed within a protective sleeve, of similar description.

     

    The model is supplied with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and will be a LIMITED EDITION of just 150 examples for worldwide distribution.

     

    To register your interest in reserving a model, please contact Frank Jones of British Heritage Models by phoning: +44 (0)1244 320761

    or by emailing: bhm-uk@talktalk.net

     

    The price of the model will be £99.95 plus U.K. postage & packing of £5, with international postage & packing at cost.

     

    Payment will not be required until the model is in stock, ready for delivery.

     

    This is a rare opportunity to acquire a rare model of an extremely rare Rolls Royce.
