Great Lakes Models was established in January 2011 in the heartland of the USA: Wisconsin.

Our company is run by a husband and wife team, both of which are avid model railroaders. He started when he was a child with HO scale, when he moved and there wasn't room for the HO scale he decover his now love or interest for Z scale. She is a recent newcomer to the hobby, having dabeled in N scale before also residing in Z.

Our goal with Great Lakes Models is to provide high quality products and accessories for the hobby industry.

Our first products were made for the model railroading industry and were fabricated out of brass for HO scale. We are in the process of exploring other materials for many more products. We have products in the works for other scales, large and small alike.

Our passion for the hobby industry and our need to enhance and improve it is what drives us.
