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 professional model finishing and perfectly 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.
