Our company fabricates synthetic resin
scale-models and accessories on the scale of 1/72 and 1/35 with
photo-etched and/or vacuum drawn components. The enterprise began the
operation at the end of the 90’s. First it fabricated only figures, but
it was completed with airplanes on the scale of 1/72 (Hungarian
experimental types from the II World War. The WM-23 Ezüst Nyíl was the
most popular among dozens of different kits.). The Hungarian reference
was always determining during the selection of types.
The next period was for the post-war Hungarian
military vehicles. The first 1/72 vehicles were manufactured: Csepel
D344, B-130, Cs-800, D352. The series was closed with Csepel D566 and
Dac-665. After a longer pause, I established another enterprise at the
end of 2009, but the trade mark remained the same.
Balaton Modell moved to a level of higher quality with the production of
2S3 Akácija. Péter Slyizs joined to the company. Planning of assembly
drawings, photo-etched procedure and some master-pieces are also
attached to his name.
We have started the technology of 3D printing in the case of new
master-pieces and it makes possible the even more precise solutions.
The rubber tyre and caterpillar vehicles of the post-war period are the
main line of bearing at the moment. We try to process the
internationally marketable topics beside the Hungarian techniques.
Beside the Russian type models, American martial vehicles also will be
fabricated for (not only) western scale-model makers. In our online
web-shop you can buy not only Balaton Modell products, but the
specialities of several small-series manufacturers as well.
