I'll begin with a little intro about myself... I am a scale modeller, just like you, who was tired of the limited selection of resin accessories in 1/72nd scale, especially with modern-era subjects.  I have been a proud member of the IPMS/USA Indianapolis Roscoe Turner Chapter and current member of IPMS Canada.  I have won many Best of Class, First, Second, Third place awards in the 1/72 Jet category: including the IPMS/USA Region 4, 2003 Convention.  I have had models featured in Fine Scale Modeller Magazine and several articles published on ARC (The Aircraft Resource Centre) featuring some of my 1/72nd scale aircraft models.  I am also a member of the Zone 5 Aircraft forum.  I started Modern Hobbies in April 2008 and I am the sole proprietor, manager and owner.  My goal here at Modern Hobbies is to provide fellow 1/72nd scale modern-era aircraft modelers with good, quality resin accessories that you actually want, AND that no other manufacturers will do in our scale.

Resin Casting

Over the years I learned the value and fun of resin casting for scale modelling.  Instead of out sourcing, I realized that I could make my own accessories to improve my modern jets.  After perfecting my skills I was no longer robbing my spares box for parts and began creating items not available anywhere in 1/72nd scale.  I use slow setting, ultra-thin viscosity polyurethane resin by Smooth-On.  I utilize the latest in resin casting supplies and methods including; vacuum and pressure-casting.  My accessories are tough too, and not brittle like other after-market examples.  My production process yields bubble-free parts.

 So, stay a while, explore the website, and pick up something you need!  You can drop me a line anytime via email or use the Contact page and tell me what you think!
