after fairs...


¡Confirmado!: Resinlab Models estará presente como expositor las FREAK WARS (15 y 16 de Septiembre, Madrid). Se trata de un evento especializado en los Wargames cuya popularidad ha ido creciendo en los últimos años. Enhorabuena a la organización. 

 .... y nueva imagen de marca!!!

Estoy trabajando por mejorar la marca, dar más proyección al taller de maquetas y lanzar novedades. El primer paso ha sido encargar el logotipo de Resinlab Models a un diseñador muy especial. El autor es Sergi Sánchez (BARBARROC). En la actualidad este nombre quizás no suene mucho  pero es el resultado de la mala memoria que tiene un hobby sólo centrado en las novedades. En la actualidad realizar miniaturas es relativamente sencillo (modelado digital, impresoras asequibles, casters a patadas, PayPal, etc...) pero hubo un momento que no lo fue.

Si creamos una lista de pioneros del hobby nacional Sergi Sánchez sería uno de ellos. A comienzos de los años 90 Sergi inundo las tiendas de toda España con la serie Los siete pecados capitales y fue autor de otras muchas miniaturas basadas en personajes de cómic y la saga Fanhunter

Yo era un niño cuando Sergi lanzó sus primeras miniaturas al mercado. Tras comprar su primera serie comencé a modelar imitando su particular estilo. 20 años más tarde tuve el placer de conocer a Sergi y comenzar a colaborar en muchos proyectos juntos 

Actualmente Sergi es un prolífico diseñador gráfico y placa sus ansias escultóricas creando los trofeos de DEVIR IBERIA. Vive felizmente en un adorable pueblecito de Girona junto a su mujer y dos hijos.

Confirmed!!!: Resinlab Models will be an exhibitor at FREAK WARS (Madris, September 15th-16th). It is a Wargames specialized event, increasingly popular during the last years. So, I must congrat the organizers.

…And new brand design!!!

I’m working hard to improve our brand, to make better known the models workshop and to launch novelties. The first step has been to order the new Resinlab Models Brand design to a very special designer: Sergi Sánchez (BARBARROC). Probably you don’t hear any bells when you hear his name, but this is the unconvenience of enjoying of a hobby too much centered in novelties. Nowadays it is relatively easy to make scale models, while we can model digitally, printers are becoming more and more affordable, it exists PayPal, etc.

But there was a time when that was not so easy. If we collect the names of Spanish fantasy hobby pioneers, Sergi Sánchez would be included in the list. At the early 90s Spanish shops was literally overfloaded with Sanchez’ The Seven Capital Sins figurines, and he created many other sculptures base on comic book characters and from the Fanhunter saga.

I was just a kid when Sergi Sánchez launched his first figurines. After purchasing his first series I started to make my own models imitating his peculiar style. Twenty years later I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him and start to cooperate at several projects.

Currently Sergi is a prolific graphic designer and he satisfaces his wish for sculpting by creating the trophies of DEVIR IBERIA. He lives happily at an beautiful village of Girona alongside his wife and two children.

2018, Im still standing, yeah, yeah...!!!



Hi friends and customers (...and Happy New Year... In March!?...)
Resinlab status: Frozen by workshop overdose. However, producir figurines is a dream come true. I really enjoy featuring new models and having all your feed-back. Since 16 years ago I combine this activity with other jobs, always related to model-making.
Therefore, our 2017 and 2018 plans for Resinlab have been delayed due to hectic activity at the workshop. Nowadays there's overload of resincast orders, as well as 3D models and printings, fabrication of scale models for architects, and large models for fairs and special events.
2017 was a great year with spectacular orders, among them I stress those for Paramount Pictures and DEVIR Iberia. 2018 does not seem to be different from 2017.  However, I hope that soon a new model will arise between the work assignments.
* Fairs: Anyway, in 2018 I will take part again as exhibitor at:
VIII Model Contes City of Legánes, Madrid (16th-18th March).
XXIV AMT Torrent, Valencia (6th-8th Abril) - for the 14th successive year!!!  
In both fairs I will display the usual collection of busts and scenery props. I look forward to seeing you there.
Many thanks for all your e-mails and a small sample of what I'm doing!!!

Hola amigos y clientes.. y ¿feliz año? ¿en marzo? Comencemos:
Resinlab status: ¡Congelado!. Producir miniaturas es un sueño hecho realidad. Disfruto mucho creando nuevos modelos y recibiendo el feedback de todos vosotros. Desde hace 16 años compagino esta actividad con otros trabajos, siempre vinculados al modelismo.
Los planes para Resinlab del año pasado y 2018 se han visto retrasados por una actividad frenética dentro del taller. Actualmente estoy sobrecargado de encargos de reproducción en resina, modelado e impresión 3d, maquetas de arquitectura, grandes figuras para eventos especiales... 
2017 fue un gran año con numerosos encargos  entre los que destaco los realizados a Paramount Pictures o DEVIR Iberia. 2018 no parece ser diferente a 2017. Espero que en breve surja algún nuevo modelo entre encargo y encargo. 
Fairs: No obstante… volveré a estar presente otro año como expositor en:  
VIII Model Contes City of Legánes, Madrid (16, 17 y 18 de marzo )
XXIV AMT Torrent, Valencia (6, 7 y 8 de abril) 14º año consescutivo!!!  
En ambas ferias estará disponible la habitual colección de bustos y elementos de escenografía. Allí os espero.
Gracias por vuestros emails y una pequeña muestra de lo que ando haciendo estos días!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR


fantastic paint job by Pintor de miniaturas

From my small workshop I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a new year packed with kits, Star Wars, brushes, more Star Wars, resin figures, a bit more of Star Wars, plasticard and all these trifles that make us the modelers happy!!!

My plan for 2015 envisaged the launch of new kits but it has finally been impossible. The activity at the workshop is tailored to order entries and replacements, mainly resin orders for other brands. Moreover, Resinlab Models' small catalog has continually needed to be replenished and this takes the necessary time to produce anything new.

For 2016 I do not want to commit the blunder of anticipate novelties, though we can confirm the attendance of Resinlab to the two most important fairs modeling of Spain:

* IV Competition Models of Leganés (Madrid) March 11th-13th.

* AMT Torent XXII (Valencia) May 30th- April 1st (we had been there 13 years as an exhibitor at this event, I think I'm getting old)

Thanks to everyone for keep following my humble work

Enrique from Resinlab Models

future models fro 2016, maybe...

XXI AMT TORRENT SCALE MODELS FAIR & CONTEST

The next days, between 10th and 12th April will be held the 21st edition of the Modeling Fair in Torrent, a city neighbour to Valencia (it is connected to Valencia by subway).
 
Torrent Fair is a must for modellers and a reference inside and outside Spain. To talk about this competition brings me great memories and anecdotes. I've attended during twelve years as an exhibitor, and this year you can visit again our stand Resinlab Models alongside Clay Dreams Miniatures (No. 8)
 
For personal reasons this time I will not be able to attend personally, though my friend JL Tortosa (AKA LULU Monster) will take care of the stand. I want to thank once again the organizers of the event!!!

V Modelism Contest ¨CIUDAD DE LEGANÉS¨ Madrid


These year's first months have became hectic. The main activity at our workshop is to produce scale models, prototypes and resin cast service for other brands and companies. These are days of hard work and I'm afraid that we will not have any new releases until beginning of Spring. However...

Next March the 13th-15th will be held in Leganés (near to Madrid) the fair V Static Modelism Contest ¨Ciudad de Leganés¨ . If you're a hobby-fan do not hesitate in visiting the fair and look for our stand (n. 34 and 35). I'm honoured to share this space with two brilliant modellists: Macone MACONE Models & Javier Villarroya. Many thanks to the association Model34 for creating this awesome event.See you!!!
