Gunthwaite Miniatures was created to produce 1/72nd scale military miniatures for collectors, diorama builders and modellers generally.
The original intention was that we should attempt to fill a gap in the market by producing 1/72nd scale figures of naval personnel to accompany Fleet Air Arm aircraft models. More by accident than design, the emphasis of our first releases was British and Commonwealth sailors more generally. However, the figures may also be used with 1/72nd scale naval aircraft and also kits of Royal Navy and Commonwealth vessels in 1/72nd scale such as those produced by Airfix and Revell. The release of First World War airmen represented our first foray into the Great War period and our first figures produced in resin. The range will expand further to cover other airmen and soldiers and there is likely to be the occasional sortie into other periods and into scales other than 1/72nd.
We are in a literal sense a cottage business. Our main interest arises from modelling as opposed to producing, marketing or selling. Consequently, we do not sell direct. However, Gunthwaite Miniatures are available from Halifax Modellers World, Coastal Craft and Model Dockyard and in Australia, Float-a-Boat. All contact details of stockists are . The nature of our business is that the production of figures is likely to be intermittent and therefore from time to time specific figures may be out of stock pending the production of new castings. We apologise now for any inconvenience or frustration this may cause.
