Hi all.

I'm on the lookout for a uk based mould making and casting service, I'm looking for good quality reliable service ( cheap as possible) lol. I know you get what you pay for, so guys who have you used and what are they like. Any leads welcome, it will be for small scale items 1/300 !

Griffin. Not the cheapest but their quality is second to none. Often you hunt for mould lines to remove and I've yet to see flash on anything they've cast.

I'm waiting on a cost from griffin. Has anyone tried Langley models if so how are they in terms of quality.

If Griffin is close on price I'd go with them. Have you seen or bought anything from Langley? If not I think it would be worth your while.

Nah Richard,
Need both to get more design work done lol But if you ever need something bunging on a pre pro mould to save having to pay for one let me know can usually fit the odd item into a master mould, though Im sure both Griffin and Sgt Mess will do the same anyhow.

Cheers Leon , sgts mess will only charge a % of the master mould price and have been really helpful, so they get my recommendation.

Thanks guys
