As some will be aware, Barry Walby the proprietor of MMS Models sadly and unexpectedly passed away at the end of February 2020. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends as well as an untold number in the modelling world.

1945 – 2020

For more than 30 years, Barry had dedicated a large part of his life to his passion for military history and finely detailed models – principally of WW2 military vehicles; with MMS Models, he had built a substantial reputation and sales to an international client base in the modelling world.

Barry formally retired and closed his model-making business in 2018 but, right up until his untimely death, he continued to create and make his models for discerning enthusiasts.

In addition to being a fine human being, Barry’s legacy will include the vast collection of superbly crafted models that have been enjoyed by model enthusiasts all over the world.

If you have an interest in model making and would perhaps like to continue where Barry left off, his ‘brand’ and all the materials, designs, reference library, moulds, casting equipment etc to make that possible would be available. In the first instance, please contact the family via e-mail to
