It's all in the details!

I was asked during an interview recently how our models look so “real”. I responded with the “well, it’s all in the details”.

And it is! Excellent modeling does come down to details. A good model can become a great model just by focusing on getting more details correct, whether it is in the panel lines of an aircraft fuselage, the engine wiring of a car, or the “mud” to the tracks of an armored vehicle, those details can set the model apart from the others if they are done correctly.

I guess that is one of the reasons that I enjoy our meetings. We all share our “secrets” about how to add the details so our projects come out the most realistic as possible. 

If you need some of those “secrets” for your project to come out amazing, feel free to ask one of our experts. He will be happy to tell you what he has done to set his model apart from the others.

Until next time,
