On all Darstaed products we can offer a professional weathering/numbering service. This is typically priced at £30 per coach for custom weathering and numbering. For more details or to place an order with weathering on top please call the office on 01756 701451.

If you would like the hinge detailing pack to be pre-installed, this service is available for an extra £10, or an extra £5 when having a coach weathered (meaning the total price for weathering and installing the hinges is £35)

We anticipate the lead time on these services will be between one to three weeks.

You can now order your coaches with custom services, through the website - simply add the coaches desired to your basket then click here to be taken to the listing for 'Darstaed Customising Services'. Once here, follow the instructions in the description.
