Who are we?
Minifer creates models for model railroaders
From architectural plans or photos, Minifer draws models using a computer. The models are typically French, may conform to reality, or from imagination.
Pre-laser cut models
This technique provides unparalleled finesse. Antennas, railings and other umbrella can now come to life on the models, to an ever greater realism!
Models as kits to assemble
The kits are made of hard cardboard boards, wood or plastic. They are to ride with wood glue and paint with acrylic or gouache. It's as simple as that! (For more information, clic here to know how to fix the kits, and clic here to know how to paint it).
