We Regret That We Are No Longer Able To Accept Commissions To Paint Figures, Wagon Loads Or Other Items Purchased And Supplied By Clients.
Detailed Miniatures supply professionally painted white metal and resin figures in O gauge, 7mm scale, principally for model railway enthusiasts.
We realise that there is a growing demand to populate locomotives, rolling stock, platforms and scenery with realistic figures and scenes depicting everyday railway life, whilst understanding that many have neither the time, materials, ability or indeed the eyesight (!!) to paint commercially available figures to a standard with which they are satisfied.
Figures produced by Detailed Miniatures are obtained from leading suppliers, such as Invertrain's Heroes Of The Footplate, Andrew Stadden, and Modelu3D.
Prior to assembly where necessary, the figures are cleaned of casting marks and flash as far as practicable, before being rigorously cleaned to remove any chemicals used during the manufacture. Each figure receives an enamel primer, before being painted in acrylics utilising up to fourteen ultra thin coats in a blending and layering process to achieve authentic highlights, lowlights and shading, before two coats of a quality matt varnish are applied.
We Now Keep In Stock All The Items Shown On The Website, Except Where They Are Updated As Temporarily Out Of Stock. Please see the various pages on this site to view examples of our painted work and pricing, which we believe to be very competitive.
Please contact us with your requirements, in the knowledge that you will receive a reasonably priced, personal service - we are proud to show a small selection of the many positive comments we have received on our "Testimonials" page.
