About Merlin Models
Merlin Models is a passion project. That passion comes from building and collecting models just like you do. As we built and collected models from other companies over the years, it became clear that something was always missing. Something that kept each model from reaching its full potential. Sometimes it was the number of imperfections in the product. Sometimes it was clear that a manufacturer had used a mold too many times. Sometimes it was just the quality of the materials themselves. Or a lack of attention to the fine details. The list goes on.
We realized that there is a big opportunity in the modeling space. A chance for someone to step in and do things the right way. And that’s our goal with Merlin Models. Our products are designed by professional artisans from industries such as film, video games, graphic novels, architecture, model making, and scenic design.
It begins with researching original material and then creating the stories that we want to tell through 3 dimensional artworks. Each subject is studied thoroughly using as many documents and reference materials as possible. The result is that we are able to produce accurate and detailed concepts.
Our production methods are cutting edge. We use the most advanced technologies for the production of each piece of art. These include CNC metal machining, laser and chemical etching, rapid prototyping, wax masters, premium True Plastic castings, die casting, injection molding, and more. This results in assembled collectibles that are then masterfully produced by professional painters and artists with vast years of knowledge and experience.
All of this means that we can proudly say that our model kits are beyond comparison! Our advanced materials and methods ensure not only sharp and consistent detail, but also durability. Gone are the days of brittle resin castings. You no longer need to waste weeks of your time on cleanup, sanding, and carving before you can begin building your model. Each of our castings is made of durable polyurethane of the highest quality. And all traces of production are removed at the factory, leaving behind only beautiful individual pieces that are ready for assembly.
We believe that taking the extra step is paramount to our success as creators. With that in mind, we make sure that each collectible or kit comes with every element that is needed for the best presentation. These elements include premium display bases, decals, vinyl masking templates, laminated instruction guides, bolts, screws, machined metal parts, electroplated materials, crystal clear materials, video instructions, and of course only the best customer service!
