Welcome to Ornamental Castings
Ornamental Castings manufactures scale models and components for the modelling enthusiast.
Items include model railway components, architectural model cars and airport ground service equipment.
The Ground Service Equipment page contains 1:400 scale models for airport modellers and architectural models.
Ornamental Castings can also cast your items
Here’s the process:
To cast your item, a master pattern needs to be created first. This is the process where all model parts are born.
Please note that you are not permitted to copy items produced by other manufacturers.
Today, rapid prototyped (computer generated) parts are frequently used to produce moulds, however, a number of mediums may be used for this process such as timber, brass, aluminium, styrene, clay, or putty, depending on the shape and texture required. A pattern is produced which is an exact scale model replica of the item. The master pattern may be for white metal, resin, or brass casting.
Ornamental Castings can assist hobby casters by producing black organic or silicone rubber moulds for spin casting, thus eliminating the need for your own vulcanising press. Spin-casting moulds are produced using white metal or brass master patterns. We can create these from your rapid protoyped or other non-metal masters. If you would like moulds produced, then contact John.
Your items are then cast in white metal, resin or brass.
If you require detailed model parts for a model project of your own or you are embarking on production of model kits etc. and require many parts, contact John and discuss your requirements.
Using his own pattens and moulds John manufactured all of the Uneek range of model railway parts over the last 25 years.
