Unique weathering and special effects products for modellers.

Our aim is to provide the very best products available, using only the highest quality ingredients.

All of our special effects and weathering products are water soluble. They can be re-dissolved and wiped / smudged using a damp cotton bud to create realistic weathering effects, even after being fully dry for months.
