Some of you may have been redirected here while searching for Scale Art Model Services;
that entity no longer exists. SAMS was the banner used for the custom layout building
service that has been disbanded. The crew was my two sons and myself, we have all
moved in other directions. Scott, that’s me, moved to South Texas. Here I have reestablished
my model shop in order to produce Scale Art Parts and do a limited amount of custom
model building. I will consider limited model layout work that would be primarily
as a consultant and/or working with the customer to design and finish a model Railroad
Where parts are concerned, I am not going to revive the shopping cart just yet. I
prefer to address individual customers on a one on one basis. Each order will be
hand cast and filled as a custom request. Use the product pages for part numbers
and price email to me your list of parts and I will respond with a total including
shipping. I will accept checks and money orders for the time being. I know this is
a step backwards, but it kind of dovetails into the theme of life right now. I think
we will enjoy the more personal aspect and each order will get my full attention.
I am open to developing new parts based on individual need. If you want a special
part that is not available for a project, drop me an email and we will discuss what
I can do for you.
I can do custom casting and pattern work.
I am accepting a limited number of commissions for custom model building. For this
I work in any scale and with scratch-build, kit build and kit-bash. Email me to discuss
I will work with you in the construction of your model railroad project. Email me,
lets discuss your needs.
I have begun doing customs installs of “Dead Rail” components in On3 locomotives.
Dead Rail is battery on board radio control. These installs are comprised of a battery,
radio receiver, DCC board, speaker and associated wiring. This is very cool stuff.
Eliminate the need for track wiring and dirty track issues. Email me for more info.
I will be happy to hear from my long time customers and also new friends who have
an interest in what I have to offer. I will be doing a rolling update of this web
site a time and inspiration allow. In the mean time drop me an email and touch base.
This door is a portal that leads to the organized chaos I call my shop. Once inside things begin to make sense in a low-tech kind of way. The space is about 24’ long and 8’ wide. Compared to my previous location, very small. It teaches discipline and how to be organized. One end is my casting area and the other end is for model building. I have a tendency to fill whatever space I have. While it looks messy, that is only because it is. This will alleviate some as I spend more time in here.
