About Us


Our History

Nick & Nora Designs was founded by T. Michael Baker, Jr., a formally trained artist & designer. Since the founding of the TMB Custom Models in 1992, where every project is unique and one of a kind for a specific client we have always wanted to add more to the hobby.  Over the years several personal projects were started and later abandoned, pages upon pages of sketches were left to collect dust. To make these ideas finally see the light of day Nick & Nora Designs was established.


Design Ideas

Every layout is different. Every structure has its unique reason for existing.
We might produce a thousand ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project. We hope you enjoy building our kits as much as we have enjoyed designing and developing them!

We strive to design structures and details that will offer the modeler the highest quality models.  In addition to our HO, N and O Scale structures and details we also carry the complete line of  Tru-Color Paint, Sylvan HO Scale vehicles and a variety of glues, tools, paint brushes and other hobby supplies!
