ModelZone stock a range of licensed diecast models - my local store sells about 12 different models with various liveries. Nothing on their website, but you could see if they have a store near you :-

tried them but thought their prices were shocking, ive check a few models in their shop and found them to be quite expensive. Ie one of corgis 999 models can be bought direct from their site, for £19.99, at model zone they want £39.99 for it

I found out the reason why the other week, my local model shop stopped selling corgi, cos they found out, not long after the shop buys then at trade, corgi often offload HUGE amounts for a few quid, so its not the shops fault, to stock corgi they have to say they sell at a certain price, yet know people can if look hard enough buy at less than they pay to corgi.

gift i think is about 36 quid, merchandise is 18, most sellers tick gift without being asked, but 99% of the time i buy small value stuff as it is, had lots of larger stuff pas thru without a charge and only paid the customs fee twice. some sellers state on the ebay item page they wont falsify customs fore so do what i do and avoid them.

Dunno about online, but BW Models have a pretty good range of metal kits for fire engines. They also sell decals to mark up the County Brigade of your choice and will probably send you a catalogue. Do a Google search...
