The Hudson & Allen Studio line of 25 mm scale
model buildings are supplied unpainted
and are molded in rigid polyurethane foam.
This is a lightweight material that is rugged enough to hold up to some serious
wargaming action. However, some small air pockets, flash, or surface
irregularities are to be expected with this type of molding process.
Any small surface pockets, moldings defects, or battle damage can be filled with a sandable hobby filler putty.
Elmers wood putty is a good filler material to use. The models are easily modified by the hobbyist, as polyurethane
foam sands, cuts, and shapes quite readily with standard home and hobby tools.
As with any workshop project, Vatican Enterprises recommends the use of personal
protective gear such as safety glasses and a dust mask when making modifications
to the models.
The mold release does not have to be removed prior to painting if acetone
based primers are used. If a lacquer based primer is desired, the parts
must first be washed to remove any molding release residue. After priming,
water based acrylic paints are recommended for finish painting of the models.
Vatican Enterprises does not recommend these products for play with children
under eight years of age. Pieces of the models could be broken or bitten
off and pose a choking risk. These models are not intended to be childrens'
toys. They are intended for the hard-core collector and wargamer
who truly wants wargaming scenics worth fighting for.
