4mm scale diecast model bus, coach and lorry manufacturer Exclusive First Editions diversified into a range of unpowered injection moulded plastic models of 1938, 1959 and 1962 London underground stock. These can readily be motorised by an averagely competent modeller.

Although publicised when the 1938 stock range was first introduced, Isle of Wight 2 car versions were a long time coming. However they started to arrive in 2009.

First to become available, in the summer, was a rendition of unit 007 in the current retro-LT red livery. Then in November, unit 005 in late Network SouthEast livery - the colours in which these units were first introduced to the island - appeared. Finally, in July 2011 the "popular" (it is said - personally I thought it was hideous) livery featuring Dinosaur vinyls was released as displayed on unit 008.
