Founded in 1983, SMTS has been hand building high quality, White Metal automotive replicas for over 25 years. Based in the historic town of Hastings on the south coast, the company employs a team of more than a dozen highly experienced and talented model engineers and fabricators.
All of SMTS’s models are designed from scratch. Many of our replicas are created by reference materials directly from the manufacturers’ original plans. The replicas we create are made from White Metal, a process not dissimilar to die-cast model making but, with White Metal, the moulds are made from rubber, which allows much smaller production runs to be possible.
Whiie the bodies are always made of metal, resin and rubber are also used for ancillary parts and, of course, the tires. The fine detail, such as window surrounds and badging, is usually photo-etched in steel.SMTS
