TMTmodels from the inside. Our first steps 5 years ago.

This is a translation to English some of my articles about how we making scalecars in TMTmodels workshop. I hope it will be interesting and I’m sorry for my bad English. 🙂

Most collectors have industrial models made somewhere at the factory in China, for example. And I want to show how we making scalemodels in a small workshop. It’s not a long boring text with a lot of technological terms, only photos with brief comments.

The first product of  TMTmodels was the kit of UAZ 469 Militsia (Soviet Union police). It was made in 2011, we had neither the experience nor the theoretical knowledge, a lot of things done at a venture.
