If you see something you like, I have at a lower cost there.
Products to help you in your hobby. Made by a hobbyist for a hobbyist. I will do freelance and requests as well. I offer highly detailed parts for scale models in almost any scale. From 1/700 to 1/16 and more, if you need it, I'll do it.
I'm starting to move away from Shapeways and will be producing a select few models myself. I will still sell products on Shapeways but I will be able to print at a lower cost to you. If you want to see the products I have for sale on Shapeways and by myself, check here: Product Catalog. I will be creating an order form to use.
I design detailed upgrades and tools mostly for model builders to aid in their projects. I also work with cell phone cases and jewelry on a limited basis. My new website is: www.mikesmsproductions.com If you see something you like, I most likely offer it for less on my website.

If you want something specific modeled, send me a message. I'll be glad to look over the proposal and see if I can do it. If you allow me to sell it in my shop I'd be glad to give you a discount on it. I am willing to do leg work to research projects, as far as I am able to, but it would make it much easier if you provided plans (blueprints, schematics or hand drawn) and pictures of some kind. If you want something scaled up or down, send me a message and I'll get on it as soon as I can. I will gladly do freelance and requests.
Some tips for handling Frosted Detail Plastics:
Set parts out in direct sunlight or under a UV lamp for a few hours before cleaning and painting. This will cure any residual bits of uncured resin.
Rinse withwarmsoapy water
Soak in a cleaning detergent. You could use Simple Green, Goo-Gone, no conditioner baby shampoo or Bestine.
DO NOT USE ACETONE, MINERAL SPIRITS OR A STRONG SOLVENT. THEY CAN DISSOLVE OR WEAKEN THE PLASTIC.
Rinse in warm water
Use ACRYLIC PRIMER for plastics. Enamel and solvent based paints and primers may not cure correctly.
Use only ACRYLIC paints. Enamel and solvent based paints may not cure correctly.
