A wide choice of scale models
Scientific MHD's scale models cover a very wide range of themes. Famous historical scenes occupy an important place in the selection. You can find a large selection of vehicles, both real and fictional. Science fiction is a world that is in the spotlight. These range from the most common (cars, planes, etc.) to others that are much less common (spaceships). Scientific MHD offers models of varying levels of complexity and accuracy. These can be made of wood or plastic.
To create the world for your model to live in, a number of figures, mainly historical are available. But above all, if you are looking to create an environment where you model can evolve, you can find everything you need to achieve this. Assembling a model is a meticulous job, which requires the right equipment. That's why Scientific MHD offers you, in addition to the various models, everything you need to make the final result as beautiful as possible.
You’ll need to consider glue and finishing materials, but also most of the models can be painted yourself. This is probably one of the most difficult steps. We provide a wide selection of paints, brushes and airbrushes for the neatest possible results.
How do you choose your first model ?
There are all sorts of reasons why you might buy a model. You may be looking for a decorative object, but you may also want the satisfaction of putting together and finishing a model yourself. Think about the level of your manual skills when choosing a model as you’ll be assembling and painting your it yourself. If you like a particular model, check its complexity. It would be a shame (and expensive) if you didn’t manage to finish something you had started.
You need to be patient and meticulous when assembling your model. If you are just starting out, the choice of your first model will depend on how good your skills are and the time you think you can dedicate to their construction. Why not try your hand at smaller, cheaper models before buying more elaborate ones.
There is no age limit for model building. This type of activity appeals to pensioners and young children alike. If you are buying for a child, go for simple models at reasonable prices. Children will learn many skills how to be precise and take pride in creating something beautiful and well done. As they become more proficient, they will be able to work on more complex, more elaborate models.
When you buy your first model think about other important elements, such as the paint you are going to use, the brushes, and solvents, etc. Make sure you are well equipped and everything is ready and set up to start your new project. Finally, painting and gluing can be quite messy, so remember to protect your clothes and your work surface.
