Little known HO building kit manufacturers - know any?

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I'm looking to find 'unusual' HO buildings by little known companies - for example ARTITEC (from Holland I think), So I've looked at Artitec, Faller, Pola, Piko, Walthers etc and not found anything I need.

 

Does anyone know of any niche HO manufacturers who might have something that will inspire me? TBH I don't know what I want - just something different

Yes, I agree. I have an open space to fill and I am searching for inspiration - sorry I can't be more specific.

Many apologies to all who have been kind enough to comment - I have tried to focus and I guess it's industrial/office brick buildings I'm looking for.

Information of what country or region would help as some niche manufacturers are regional specific e.g. Fides are very Swiss orientated.

Thanks for this suggestion (TBH I've only just read this posting) and tracked down a Japanese ebay seller - looked at his site and got very excited - only to discover that the things I liked most were all N gauge!  But have found a few interesting items for the next layout.

 

Thanks again

 

Paul
