From raw metal to finished product

Did you know that Model Expo actually is the manufacturer for the Model Shipways line of ship model kits? In addition to laser cutting all of our own wood, we cast many of the metal fittings found in your kit - right here in Hollywood, Florida! The following pictures give you a glimpse of what it takes to go from raw metal to a finished steering wheel.
