Striving for excellence. Making things easy.
Wood Grain Decals, camo stencils, burnishing agents scenic displays....So much has been done and there is so much more to come.
Allow me to have a few words about how all of this has begun.
The aircraft model you see below is Wingnut Wings´s 1/32nd scale LVG C VI. I built it in 2010 within a period of around 3 months. It has won serveral gold medals, best of class and audience awards. It was pretty much successful.
People always asked how the wood was done. Well in this case, the grain texture was painted by hand with a pin brush. During the conversations with the modelers i often realized that its not easy for everyone to paint a wood grain by hand. The uprise of interest in WWI modeling, brought to us mainly by Wingnut Wings, represented the necessary market situation to take on again one long forgotten topic: Woodgrain Decals.
Research and practical activity with wood as a subject in scale modeling, led to the competence which is required to be successful on this product category. Our customers consider our wood grain decals being best on the market and if you compare our textures to the real thing you will find quickly find out why they say that.
Having our woodgrain decals available for everyone means that we now have the possibility for everyone to reach a FASTER AND BETTER result as I ever was able to paint by my own.
Let´s have a look on a few images of that one project that led to the existence of Uschi van der Rosten as a brand:
AFV modelers for instance, tend to take on more and more complex camouflage patterns these days. Some camouflages are often to see as a real thing, but hard to complete as a scale model project. Follwing the maxim of "solving problems" Uschi has teamed up with the masters in the dark science of paint masks, namely the "Wizzard of Cornwall", Mr. Malcolm Mayfield of Miracle Masks. This co-operation led to the existence of a variety of paint masks for AFV. These products also have been published as a co-branded product under the label of AK-interactive.
Here comes one example of what we did in the form of Angus Creighton´s Jagdpanzer IV/L 70:
Last but not least we also have the wonderful world of civil subjects. Many of our product are designed to assist the scale modeler working on that category of scale modeling. Some can be used everywhere of course, some are quite specific, as can be seen here on this Ford Woody:
During the process, many other ideas came up and we will release a range of nice and usefull products, helping you to gain fast and professional results when it comes to aircrafts, ships or vehicles. Furthermore you´ll find pretty sweet stuff when it comes to present your finished model. Many of those already have been released as part of the Scenic Display Products:
