Our talented visual artist is ready to repaint any 1/1250 ship model from your collection! ‘Gesupert’, as the Germans would say, a ship model becomes like new, and even more realistic – when carried out right. On this page we collected some repainting examples, but the best advertisements are of course our own ship models.

Repainting is done with a lot of attention to reality. For example, historical photos are consulted to find out the right colour schemes. Outsourcing this work will save you a lot of disappointments and mess, after all, not everybody is able to paint difficult surfaces or very thin lines.
