The company NOCH was founded 1911 in
Glauchau (Saxon) by Oswald Noch, the great-grandfather of the
current Managing Director. The family concern
that has been managed by the owners over generations has
advanced together with the employees to a specialist in
model landscaping. The NOCH logo including the words "...wie
im Original" obliges to manufacture realistic,
life-like products...like the original prototypes in nature. The
NOCH team is still striving to make the fascinating model
landscaping hobby easily approachable for every modeller.
Every year the team try to improve the applications and to
develop new, innovative products for the most beautiful hobby of
At the beginning of each modelling project
there is the sturdy base. The landscape is the heart and also
the face of a model railway layout. Therefore the construction
of a landscape substructure is one of the most important and
demanding tasks when creating a model landscape. Whether you
wish to realize your own ideas or to replicate an original
landscape, you need not only fantasy, leisure and dexterity but
above all the proper material for a sturdy base construction.
For this purpose NOCH offers you a wide range of terrain
structuring products: the TERRA-FORM terrain structuring system,
crepe paper, wire mesh paper, aluminium wire mesh, paster cloch,
rock compound and modelling compound.
Bridges and Viaducts
Real artworks in miniature made of
"steel-carton"! Every model railroader knows: It is the details
that are fascinating. Sometimes it is quite easy to provide
eyecatchers for a model railway layout or diorama - for example
with the laser-cut kits form NOCH. The delicate rivets of the
steel construction are engraved by laser. This technology gives
the special laser carton - being imported from England
especially for you - a natural patina. NOCH bridges increase the
attractivity of each model landscape. Our range includes four
different types of bridges: fascinating, finely detailed
laser-cut bridges (kits), ready-to-use stone bridges made of
exrremely sturdy, realistic looking hardfoam, kits of modern
pylon bridges with wooden routes and plastic piers and classic
steel bridge kits made of plastic.
Portals, Walls and Arcades
Craggy model landscapes have several
challenges in store: Steep rock faces must be supported by
retaining walls, somewhere else a tunnel leads through a
mountain. Well planned and complex tunnels running through rocky
mountains give a model landscape that "certain something". NOCH
portals, walls and arcades - realistic like the original thing.
Whether at a large city station or a switch yard, an express
train line or a secondary line: Matching walls, arcades and
portals characterize the apprearance of a railway landscape - in
real life as well as on a model layout. NOCH offers an
incomparable wide assortment of different materials: NOCH
structural hard foam, laser-cut, CONSTRU-flex, 3D structured
textures, embossed carton or inexpensive plastic.
The landscape is the heart and also the
face of a model railway layout. Therefore landscape structuring
is one of the most pleasant, important and challenging tasks
when creating a model layout. Whether you realize your own
creative ideas or want to model a real landscape: You need not
only fantasy, leisure and dexterity but above all the proper
scenery materials. In the NOCH range you will find everything a
modeller's heart desires.

Laser-Cut - The Future of Model
In the past few years, the Laser-Cut
technology has found its way to all areas of model building. The
most striking changes can be noticed with model buildings.
Originally they were manufactured of only plastic, however
nowadays – thanks to Laser-Cut – they are made of a special
cardboard. NOCH uses an age-resistant laser cardboard being
certified according to DIN norm. The innovative 45° angle cut
makes assembly very easy. All buildings of the Laser-Cut series
are entirely handpainted resulting in a very realistic
appearance. But not only the product features do inspire:
Cardboard is a renewable resource and during the laser cutting
process the required energy is applied with utmost precision and
efficiency. For this reason the NOCH Laser-Cut buildings show
the road to the future also with regard to environmental
Glue- fold - finished!
45° angle cut: The wall is standing! Laser
become more and more popular in model building. NOCH has thought
about a better use of the advantages of laser. The result is the
NOCH Laser-Cut System. »Plus«, because it goes one step further
eliminating previous weak points applying innovative solutions.
The 45° angle cut is one of the technical achievements. It
enables an easy assembly by simply gluing and folding the
building, and the edges of the buildings have no visible
laser-typical joints. 2011 the Laser-Cut technology of NOCH has
been awarded the innovation price by the local VR Bank.
