Welcome to my website

 

  • My greatest hobby is making models and i do this for a couple off years now.
  • I am not a professional builder but i try to make the models as good as possible.
  • I am so obsessed with building that i almost build as a proffessional,i try to make the models accurate as the originals.
  • The models are all build from scratch.

 

The models that i have made are  the models from Gerry Andersons  THUNDERBIRDS  from  1965

I have all the tools for making the models.A lath for wood and anotherone for iron.

Also a bandsaw and a grinding maschine.My latest products that i have bought are a vacumpot and a vacumepump very usefull when you work with silicone and resin.To tear the air out off them and get a better result with molding the silicone and casting the resin.

The decals on my models i can cut by my self and can make them any size ore any font  i want.They are from very thin vinyl and can be in white or other  colors to.
