Balsa Manufaktur



As children we have dreamed of our own world: we first draw it, then we build it in Lego. Later, as adults, still we like to build objects and dioramas which reflects our imaginary world we carry in us. Sometimes it is only a model of a car, a ship or an airplane, sometimes it is a remote control to bring toys alive. 

Balsa Manufaktur uses the beauty of the exotic Balsa Wood to design and build vintage car models. The models are created by laser cutter and built carefully by hand. Therefore each model, although based on a digital file, gets an own character because the wood structure and color changes, the curves are bended by hand and finishing is done with sandpaper.

The idea behind this kind of wooden cars is also related to the origins of the model cars itself: in the Forties and early Fifties car models were made with balsa wood, by adding few structural components in plastic or metal. Famous examples are Hudson Miniatures and Berkeley.





The Classic collection aims to reach perfectness in all details, in a very small scale. Still being reproducible, it might be among the most detailed wooden car models which can be considered a model kit.
Balsamanufaktur also creates Custom models, designing something which is different from the "usual". The reference scale is always 1:20.

Hi

are some kits avalaible for sale ?

regards
Hello Tridipuz, sorry for late reply. Although made to be repeated, I did not prepare them as Kit. Already the assembly instruction would be too complicate I guess. But in future I might have a good idea to make it a kit, using also different kind of wood (stronger). Thanks for asking!
