The start of a new venture

For the last few years i have been interested in laser cut models and have been contemplating a venutre into producing some laser cut kits for Australian modelling, obviously with a focus on WA buildings but hopefully with some generic structures in the future for wider use.

Having made a commitment to duplicate the buildings on the Swan View layout i decided to make the station my first model. The images below show the progress so far. With a successful cut in wood of some components i have done a mockup of the main building parts in card to test prior to cutting in fine 1mm plywood, which i need to find a good supplier for.

So far the results look good and the final kit will be a composite of plywood, balsa, card and possibly styrene. Keep an eye out for a full article and pics of the completed kit.

Ps if anyone is after badges or small to medium engraved signs I will also have a capacity for these and hopefully some basic brass etching in the future.

If you would like to express your interest, have any questions or perhaps a building you would really like to see as a kit in the future contact me
