Specialising in the more artistic and smaller sized end of miniature arts, sculpture, model making and traditional crafts I’ve earned a reputation as “the chap you go to when you don’t know who else to go to”, with many of my customers being other professional model making companies sub-contracting out the more obscure, difficult and demanding aspects of detailing their own work.

My client list is diverse taking in private collectors around the globe and major museums through model manufactures in the hobby markets to architectural firms, big business, TV/film, PR and advertising agencies. The projects I’ve undertaken have been pretty eclectic ranging from the common place like sculpting miniature historical figures for museums like the Tower of London, making collectable models for foreign royalty, designing/casting presentation pieces for companies like Rolls Royce and prop making for Sky TV, to carving celebrity portraits out of mini-cheeses for Babybel, or hand painting tiny sports strips for live insects as part of a promotional campaign for the English cricket board. My work and myself as an artist have featured in national newspapers, seen me interviewed live by the BBC through to making headlines on the international MSN website.

So if you want a set of 2D technical drawings physically reproduced as essentially a 3D set of technical drawings using soulless computer controlled rapid prototyping machinery then that’s not who I am or what I do. If you want a skilled and successful miniature artist to hand-craft something tiny in size but big on character that’s going to stand out and get noticed I’d be pleased to hear from you.

With over 27 years experience working in all fields of professional model making

Every model undertaken receives the same high attention to detail and finish regardless of cost.

A keen eye for detail and good understanding of prototype design and engineering enables me to build a high quality model from a basic sketch, 2D engineering drawing or 3D cad file.

I have over 10 years SLA 3D printing experience and using the latest 3D modeling software I can help design any product or component from a sketch or modify any design with ease to manufacture a high quality SLA model or prototype

With my years of experience working with Architects and Designers all over Europe i know that good communication is the success of each project undertaken.

From start to finish i take great care in working with my clients on model specification and budget costs to manufacture a high quality model finished on time.

As well as using modern technology i am still a traditional hands on modelmaker with good skills at all - woodworking, metal working, fiberglass molding, resin casting and molding, metal casting, engineering - hands on milling and turning, small cnc-milling machine,vinyl cutting, spray painting.

Established in 1969, our model makers manufacture scale models for developers and their architects, and also offer a bespoke laser cutting service. As can be seen from our website, we are commissioned by nationally known and respected companies, as well as SMBs and individuals.

While we use the latest laser technology in the construction of our models, we also retain traditional hand finishes, which our clients consider give our models a certain “warmth” and accessibility, often lacking with modern techniques.

We believe that our success is based on our client’s confidence in our ability to produce models to the highest standards and exacting schedules.

If you wish to discuss your requirements for any potential models, laser cutting services, or have any general queries regarding this company please contact Julie Lightburn, Manager, or one of our senior model makers.
