Mock-up figures are the field of hobby artists. Painting the raw figures is a creative activity and recreation. After the experience gained in figure painting, we can safely try to make our own figures, for which we try to help you with materials and tools.
It is important to know that the price of a mock-up figure shows a relatively large variance, which as a layman we incomprehensibly accept for a piece of a similar size.
The price largely depends on the production technology used and thus on the quality, which mostly indicates a price difference.
The cheapest ones are made by injection molding, which in a large series is very efficient, but the technology is not able to produce figures with very detailed and complicated undercuts.
The most expensive versions require intensive manual labor, with vacuum and / or rotary molding techniques, which are also sold in limited quantities.
The most common scales are 1: 6, 1:10 and 1:18
In the past, metal figures were the most common, today injection molded pieces are mainly made of polystyrene, hand-molded polyurethane.
For those who are thinking of making their own model, we recommend polyurethane or epoxy resin, but children can also try artificial ceramics without any danger.
