Denis Tillman describes his products as "Aids to Modelling".
He produces a wide range of coach sides and ends, scribed out of styrene sheet which the modeller then laminates together to produce the finished part.
Anyone familiar with David Jenkinson's system of coach modelling will recognise this, except Denis takes the hard work out of it.

In addition the wagons originally designed for Paul Knight have been added to the Lanky Kit range as well as the L&Y Rapid Shunter from Meteor Models.
