Professional Paint Spraying & Finishing 

Malcolm Nicholls Ltd celebrating 48 years of 3D Printing, Low Volume Production and Rapid Prototyping.

Experts In Creating Perfectly Finished & Painted Models

Ever since Malcolm Nicholls produced his very first model in June 1971 his philosophy has always been to promote perfectly finished and painted models. It is with this mind-set and attention to detail that MNL continues to deliver this ethos.

Even the most recent 3d colour printers are no match for a fully finished /painted model. A variety of finishes are available including “wet-look” gloss, spark finishes as well as various levels of matt and satin.

A key ingredient of the company’s rich history, MNL pride themselves on their quality of finish.
