There have been a number of RLH bus models or model kits produced over the years, so far all have been at 1/76 scale (similar to 'OO' gauge on model railways). This page also takes a look at a couple of related products; bus garages and transfers for customisation. Keen modellers interested in detail improvements may also be interested in the Technical Specification area of this site.

Exclusive First Editions (EFE)

EFE launched a fully finished metal RLH model at 1/76 scale in January 2008. The design, detail and finish are all excellent; this model is highly recommended.

the Little Bus Company

The Little Bus Company of Halifax launched a resin model RLH kit at 1/76 scale (4mm) in December 2001, but the models were out of stock by 2002. The kit was code RLH1 and is pictured below as purchased, as component parts and with the main body pressed into one piece, without finishing or painting.

Kit of parts Main body


NewAnbrico produced a 1/76 scale white metal kit RLH as kit number 19, until the 1980s. Examples can still be found secondhand. See also entry for Key Kits (below).

Key Kits

Key Kits ( were the mail order department of ABS Models of Poole, but are no longer trading as of 2020. In 2006 they sold a 1/76 scale (4mm) metal model RLH kit which had code R310 in the ABS Streetscene Series and was believed to be either based on, or a re-issued version of, the Anbrico kit (above).

Kingsway Models

Kingsway Models produce cardboard kits to build your own models of London Transport bus garages, at 1/76 scale. The following RLH garages were available as at December 2009: GD, RG, MA, WY, AL, HD, RD.


NewLBRT still (as of June 2020) produce replacement transfers such as different destination blinds for 1/76 scale RLH models here.

From about 2001 until 2016 they also sold batches of 'Code 3' reworked EFE RLH models, usually for special events or commissions. A full list can be found at, the RLHs shown are as follows:
