Replicas & Miniatures of Company Maryland is the handiwork of Norman Veber. Norm is probably as fine a resin caster as you will find in the model car hobby. He is also an exceptionally honest and straightforward person to do business with. Not only are his castings exquisite in fit and finish, but they are unsurpassed in accuracy and detail. Some of the hobby's greatest modelers have made masters for Norm and it shows!

Unfortunately Norm has never had a website to show his wares. Many of us have doubtless discussed this with him and when I asked him about it once he said that since he was essentially a one man operation he feared he would be buried with additional orders if he went on the web! (I'm sure he's right…)


As a result car model hobbyists have resorted to posting pictures of his parts on the web themselves, often on Fotki pages. But as you say, you can't order from these sites.

You can order from Norm one of three ways.

You can send him an order via regular (snail) mail. He publishes a price list and catalog. If you order from him you'll get a price list and also his most recent catalog update. If you want his catalog, which has excellent written descriptions and quite a few photographs, he charges $4.00 for it. They catalog also contains all updates and additions. (I make it a point to e-mail Norm requesting any updates that I may have missed since my last order to make sure I'm not missing any new stuff I might need) IMHO it's the best $4.00 I've ever spent on this hobby! You can also see the pages from the Catalog on Bob Black's fabulous Drastic Plastic Model Car Club* Fotki site. (http://public.fotki....casminiatureof/ ).

Norm's mailing address is:

Replicas & Miniatures Company of Maryland
317 Roosevelt Ave., S.W
Glen Burnie, MD 21061


You can also order via e-mail. Write Norm directly at this e-mail address: replmincomd@aol.com

And finally, you can call Norm during business hours (Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM EST) at this number - (410) 768-3648 - and place an order.

Norm is very approachable and will discuss your requirements over the phone or via e-mail. He answers his e-mails very promptly, typically within 24-48 hours.

He charges a flat $7.50 per order regardless of size and accepts MasterCard and Visa. As far as I know he doesn't accept PayPal nor does he sell on E-Bay.

Here are some additional sites with pictures of parts from Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland. I'm sure there are many more.

I hope this information will help you get started. You won't regret it!

* This is the second time today I've referred to Bob Black's DMPCC. Bob has constructed an incredible resource and his two modeling forums Drastic Plastics Model Car Club (http://drasticplasti...s.com/index.cgi ) and Traditional Rod and Kustom in Scale (TRaK - http://trakinscale.p...s.com/index.cgi ) are among the finest forums in our hobby. The contributions that have resulted from Bob's tireless commitment to our hobby are epic! I strongly encourage folks to join DPMCC as a way to support Bob's work.

Your welcome.

There's an error in what I wrote:

"..He charges a flat $7.50 per order for shipping regardless of size ..." He charges various prices for his merchandise! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Bernard is right- Norm is one of the best in the biz, and his products are among the finest out there- website or no.

My only gripe about Replicas and Miniatures? I can't afford to buy ten of everything he sells! :lol:
