Wildhare Models was created so we could introduce fellow modelers to a unique line of high quality, moderately priced scale model detail parts. 

As model builders, we’ve spent many years scratchbuilding a variety of parts for our personal use.  Some of that scratchbuilding was done simply for the joy of creating a hand-made part.  Most of it stemmed from necessity.  Components we needed were often not commercially available….or at least not available with the amount of detail we were looking for.

Recently we began exploring the possibilities of creating highly detailed photo-etched parts for our own use in two of our favorite scales: 1/87th and 1/24th.  Our most recent “personal use” etching project - custom fire escapes - was created for an HO scale storefront diorama.  Positive feedback surrounding that project (that, and the fact that we just thought they looked so darn cool) inspired us to reproduce some of those designs and offer them to other serious modelers.

Since jumping over the fence into this whole other aspect of the modeling hobby - creating aftermarket detail parts - we’ve begun developing a wide range of additional products that we thought would be fun to design, produce and market.  Several HO projects are well into development and we’re about to jump into ½” (1/24th) scale with some cool stuff for both model car guys and model railroaders, so stop back often to see what’s new.
