Models by Customizers


The following list of models are those built by Customizers. "What's a Customizer?", you may be asking yourself. A Customizer is someone more concerned with the nitty gritty of adding extensive detailing to a ship (photo etched parts, rebuilding inaccurate parts, etc, etc). Obviously Customizer are capable of producing higher quality models, but with much longer build and research times.

You can always tell a Customizer when you see one or converse with one on a message board. They strive for perfection and usually leave messages like the following:

"I have long thought the rivet details of models I've seen have not looked just right; I thought the height seemed to much; while I know people like to see details like these; I want mine to be realistic in every way..." - Steve Nuttall - building a 1/48 scale Yamato. (mind you his Yamato is being scratch built, but you get my meaning, right?)
