Detailedminiatures supply professionally painted white metal and resin figures in O gauge, 7mm scale, principally for model railway enthusiasts.
We are also happy to prepare and paint figures clients have already purchased to paint themselves, but have then decided against doing so. This Service Includes Assembling The Various Parts Of The Figures. We ask £12 per basic figure for this service, plus postage back to the client. The figures are prepared to exactly the same specification as described below. For figures involving a complete repaint and removal of the original paint, the price is £15 per figure, to cover the cost of the paint remover and additional work involved. Larger Figures, For Example Gauge 1 (2.25" tall) Self Scan Prints From Modelu3d, start at £17.50 per figure. Figures 3" tall are £25, and at 3.5" £30.
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 detailedminiatures 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.
We are more than happy to provide bespoke orders for particular figures, and indeed the majority of those supplied now come from private commissions from repeat clients, literally all over the world. If your specific requirements are not shown, please contact us as we will probably be able to assist.
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 resin figures are 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.
