Welcome to Skytop Models
Unique N Scale Models
My custom castings are done in gray urethane plastic and are easy to drill, cut, sand and paint. They do however require some prep work before painting. This consists of cleaning up some flash with a sharp hobby knife and washing the shell to remove the mold release. I have found it best to wash the castings first in Mineral Spirits with a toothbrush, then with dish soap followed by a rinse in luke warm (NOT HOT) water. Please be advised that the urethane resin can become soft and warp if exposed to higher temperatures. Minor warpage can be dealt with by placing under hot water and gently reshaping the piece and then cooling under cold water. Castings are generally bubble free but sometimes bubbles do happen. They are easily filled with putty. However, I strive to make sure my castings are as defect free as possible and I will replace any casting if you are not totally satisfied.
I also offer all my castings as ready-to-run models on a custom
order basis. Price will vary depending on model and difficulty of paint
scheme so be very specific when asking for quotes on custom built
