• Due to a backlog of orders, any new work taken on will have a lead time of 12 months.
  • We will consider taking personal or collector’s projects, however our priority is to our corporate customers, and these will always come first, so personal projects may be delayed and take longer than 12 months.
  • As explained below, a large proportion of the work we do for your project is the research, planning and design stage. Nothing is actually built and put together until near the end of the project (about 90% into the job), so we are unable to show progress photos of the model being built as that part of it happens near the end of the job. All we can show is unassembled parts before then if requested.
  • As all models are custom made we do not keep models in stock.

First we dream - research and plan
Next we design - moulds and laser cut parts
Lastly we build - putting it all together

We take your dream, concept or design and work out magic.
We then break this down to picture just how we can construct it to a scale and display that shows your design off to its very best.

Now that we have finalised exactly what you require, we break it down into components for design and construction.
Masters for moulding are made and patterns for laser cutting.
This is the most time consuming part of the project, and takes the longest to complete, with not a lot visually to show until it all comes together in the next phase.

Once the Design work is done, and moulds and patterns completed, we can begin construction.
Only the best materials go into our models. We have found a great combination of materials which work well together. They provide us with the ability to provide fine details to your model that are hard to beat.
This, with our military and model making experience, give a finish that is hard to surpass.
