The Age of Plastic

Plastic products of the late Anthropocene.

Age of Plastic is a collection of superdetailing parts, for enhancing your model-making experience.
Welcome to the Age of Plastic.

Here are a few model makers' superdetailing parts that I designed for my own personal fun and edification. And now they're available to you!

These are accurizing components. They're for the serious, yet fun-loving, hobbyist who wants to build a more accurate model. They won't easily snap together like a commercial plastic kit. If you don't want to trim, file, sand, and glue - then these aren't the parts you're looking for!​

Many of the the prints are delicate, easily broken, and so minuscule they push the limits of today's printing technology. The detail visible in the digital previews can't always appear in the final product - it's limited to the resolution of 3D printers. The 16 micron resolution of Frosted Extreme plastic may sound tiny, but the print lines are still visible.

To sum up, 
I made these parts for my own use. I've put them here for anyone else wants them, since I think they're pretty cool. But they do require patience, care, and skill to use effectively!
