Making the Unreal Real ... One Sprue at a Time

“We are people who, on a daily basis, risk their health or their very lives with toxic chemicals; hazardous materials (glue, cement, solvents, paints, plastics, etc); dangerous tools (both sharp and high-speed); inhospitable environments (dining-room table, all-too-comfy-chair, dogs, cats, kids, bad lighting, etc.) and the downright dastardly antics of kit manufacturers who, be they mega-corporation or garage-kit maker insist on not quite doing their job right so that we have to work a bit harder; are only making miniatures of their favourite subjects for their own and other people's pleasure.”
