Frontiart Resin model car
Frontiart Resin casting speciallized in producing collectible and customized toys and figures like designer toys, garage kits and ball-jointed dolls, as well as frontiart scale models, either individual parts or entire models of objects like trains, aircraft or ships. They are generally produced in small quantities, from the tens to a few hundred copies, compared to injection-molded plastic figures which are produced in many thousands. Resin casting is more labor intensive than injection molding, and the soft molds used are worn down by each cast. The low initial investment cost of resin casting means that individual hobbyists can produce small runs for their own use, such as customization, while companies can use it to produce small runs for public sale. Quality of both original masters and resin castings varies due to differences in creator’s skill, as well as casting techniques.
