Keith, I think the easy answer to your question would be replacement/upgrade parts for all those cheap (mostly very poor quality) white-metal / britannia metal parts you find in kits including decorations, cannon, figureheads, etc.  If these are done with more care for the detail there may be a market especially if packaged as 'detail up packages" for various ship kits (*much as the PE you find for some ships and many plastic aircraft models).


I have just had a whole ship done (at 1:350) and the level of detail that can be achieved using the right printing medium is incredible.





If at first you do not suceed, try, and then try again!

In my case would be great the figurehead in scale 1:48, how much would be the cost?
