I undertook a bit of experimentation with the samples that you'd provided and was lucky to get it right first time with both of the Alembic transfers. They are almost indistinguishable from the original. I used the Hycote gloss (as you'd recommended) and applied around six fine coats. There was a lot of masking and there's a visible 'gloss line' but I'm entirely happy with the results. I may apply a few coats of satin gloss over the entire pickup to soften the gloss, though probably won't bother. I've attached an image of one of the pickups - absolutely superb. Thanks for your help and patience throughout - we got there with a brilliant solution and your suggestions were invaluable' (Dry Transfers)

' The models arrived this morning. Thanks for the speedy service and lovely models as well.'
'I just wanted to email you to say thank you for delivering my order so quickly! I placed my order (for 10 Obeche sheets) yesterday afternoon and was delighted that it arrived today!
I am overall very impressed with the service - I also had to phone yesterday to check I had ordered the correct sized wood and was dealt with politely and efficiently by the gentleman who answered the phone.
I am self employed making and selling dolls house furniture and I'm currently working on a book of tutorials, which is being released later this year, so I order a lot of wood and will definitely being ordering from you again!'

Before retiring he used to work in London and now finds it a great excuse for a day out.
I was 'Wowed' by the variety of materials available and will use some for my 'Cambridge in Miniature' creations.'

Thank you from a very satisfied customer. .'

'I had a laser cutting job done by your team yesterday. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for sorting out all the little pieces of the work into separate bag and size as well!
The work is part of a model which will be shown in city hall today and once again thank you for doing such a great job!'
I wanted to write and thank you for your help in selecting materials for my daughter's art project.
She is entering a number if pieces for a year 9 art scholarship at her school in Northamptonshire.
The scholarship involved her picking a theme and entering 12 pieces; 6 of which have to be done at home in her spare time.
She chose the Olympics as her theme and as one of the pieces, she elected to construct a scale model of the NHS bed(s) used in Danny Boyle's opening ceremony.
On your advice, we used styrene rods and strips, as well as a low watt light bulb and power pack to add authenticity by creating a lamp above the bed.
We have now finished the bed and have only the mattress to construct.
Thanks for your advice and overall customer service.
'Many thanks for the laser etched floor you've just done for us at the National Theatre.
We're really pleased with it.'
'I've looked far and wide for miniature trees for my sculptures, these are by far the most realistic I've found. Many others I've seen are let down by cheap trunks that just look like coiled wire and 'leaves' that moult. These are so far from that, beautiful and surprisingly durable.' (50mm Oak tree)
'Thank you for your very speedy service, the order arrived today.'
'Received my order this afternoon, many thanks for your prompt service. Will certainly recommend you to others.'
'Can I express my sincere congratulations on your speedy service, to say I was impressed is an understatement! Ordered 13:00 hrs yesterday in my hand via Royal mail 10:00 hrs this morning ( next day) WOW. If and when I need any other modelling accessories you will be my first stop.'
'Just wanted to say a big thank you for the brass etching you did for me. Looked fantastic and went down a storm at the show. Look forward to doing some more in the future'
'… thank you for sending a replacement as soon as you did, I have to say some of the best customer service I have experienced for a long time.'
'This is great stuff (Styrofoam LB-X) easy to cut with a craft knife or hacksaw , I'm using it for the basis of a model railway layout cut away the outer edges and you have a remarkable rock face, and on top of that It was delivered less than 24 hours after making the order great stuff 4D'
As a long time user of 4D's trees I can honestly say I have found nothing that comes close, and I've tried just about every manufacturer in the World!'
'Thank you for the prompt delivery of trees….Amazing! I have tried other makes and making my own trees, but nothing beats your trees for realism'
(Railway modeller and contributor in ‘Model Rail’ magazine)
'Thank you so much for the piece. It is to a higher standard than I could have ever have wanted'
