Miniatures are therefore bought for decorative purposes and to show off your interest in a specific subject. Here at Scientific-MHD we have a range of many different miniatures for you to discover.
A wide choice of miniatures
When it comes to miniatures, model cars are in the spotlight, and there is something for everyone. We have a selection of recent car models including production cars (such as the Mercedes A-Class or CLK), and also competition cars like Audi R8, Mercedes AMG or even the BMW M. Scientific MHD also offers some of the most legendary vintage cars, such as the Aston Martin DB5 (James Bond's car) or old American cars like the Chevy Bel Air and the Ford Mustang Mach 1 (also popularised by James Bond).
But miniatures are not limited to cars. You can also find miniature model military ships. Scientific MHD stocks combat ships such as the H.M.S. Hood of the Royal Navy or the USS Arizona.
Aircraft are also included in this collection and you will find a wide choice covering both civil and military aviation over an extended period. Discover the military aircraft range from the Boeing Stearman PT 17, built in the 1930s, to the Lockheed Martin F16. For those less interested in the military world, we also have a selection of commercial aircraft from the 1950s and 1960s. These propeller models are in authentic airline colours of the time.
In addition to vehicle miniatures, you will also find figurines which are often linked to specific historical moments.
How to choose your first miniature ?
There is no right or wrong way to start collecting miniatures, but you may prefer some items to others because of the quality of their finish and how realistic they are. Even though miniatures can be used to play with (driving a model car, for example), their function is most often decorative.
Miniatures are often bought to build a collection, and the first miniature you choose will probably depend on a theme. The theme is up to you, but if you want to build a collection that stands out for its quality, keep in mind the importance of consistency.
If you want to display your passion for cars, you can choose one of the 1:18 scale cars offered by Scientific-MHD. But perhaps you want to focus on a specific car theme like vintage cars and so you could choose an old American.
Scientific MHD also offers various military miniatures from the Second World War. From cruisers to tanks and even fighter planes, there is something for everyone in our online store.
