For Those Attending Guildex At Telford This Month, We Are On Stand 27, Next To The Bring And Buy, In The Main Hall Where The Refreshment Area Is Situated.
The Cost To Us To Purchase Unpainted Modelu 3D Prints Has Now Been Increased By 62%, So Regrettably From 1st June 2019 We Are Having To Modestly Increase The Price Of Painted Modelu Figures to £16.00, The First Price Increase We Have Ever Introduced.
The Andrew Stadden Diesel Drivers And Second Men Series Are Also Increased To £16.00 Each Due To The Additional Cost Of The Castings To Us Which We Have To Pass On.
At The Same Time We Are Rounding Up All Our Prices To The Nearest Pound To Help Cover Several Years Of Increases In Materials Costs.

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 S&D Models, Invertrain's Heroes Of The Footplate, Andrew Stadden, Duncan Models, Aidan Campbell, Modelu3D and from France MK-35's superb Resin Range.
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.
Resin Figures Are Assembled Using Brass Rodding Pins To Secure Heads, Arms etc For Added Strength.
Stock painted "ready to go" is changing constantly. Please see the various pages on this site to view examples of our painted work and pricing, which we believe to be very competitive. The MK-35 resin figures are much more expensive for us to buy, and more demanding to prepare and assemble, but do afford a very high level of detail when complete.
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.
International orders welcome - postage at cost - see our Ordering page.
