Artitec - the new name in model kits
Artitec model kits are made using a plastic (resin) cast technique, under vacuum conditions. This allows us to create much more finely detailed parts than using other methods. The advantages are:
- Fine details like bricks, nail holes, wood grain, hinges etc. can be reproduced exactly to scale
- Realistic effects such as skew roof tiles, sagging roofs and cracked walls can be achieved
- Small details are added by using etched brass parts
- The windows are made using a screen printing technique, allowing even more detail
The kit consists of fewer parts, which saves time and cuts down on the need to place tiny details yourself, with all the difficulties that can bring
A consequence of this method is that the models are unpainted. This is unusual in railway scenery, but very common in other scale model kits. By following our expert guidelines, and with a little practice, you will soon find that you can achieve much more realistic results by painting your models yourself. Also this allows you to better customise your models, in order to make your whole collection 'fit' together.
