What Is Hearns Workshop?
Hearns Workshop is the culmination of over seventy years of innovation here at Hearns Hobbies. Continuing where our founding fathers left off, Nic and the Hearns team have now leapfrogged into the future, dreaming, designing and making scale modelling accessories, hop-up parts, and limited production resin kits right here in our Flinders Street Store!
In these challenging times with limited availability of some brands, lengthy transit times, and high costs, Hearns Workshop is the best way we know to not only support our existing suppliers and customers on a whole new level, but to also actively be a part of Melbournes’ vibrant Maker scene, and disrupt traditional modes of production by offering parts and kits that would not be available any other way.
We’re excited about whats to come next! With expanding onsite rapid manufacturing facilities and in-house industrial designers on call, expect to see some amazing things come out of Hearns Workshop literally on a weekly basis in the upcoming months.
The future of scale modelling is now, and it’s here at Hearns Workshop!
With the increase in popularity of 3D printing, many people are puzzled with how to finish their prints to a professional standard. Here is a guide to a selection of products that will help you get your print to the painting stage. Every kind of 3D print will emerge with some surface defects, whether it is FDM (filament) or SLA/SLS (resin). FDM prints can also start separating between layers. If this is the case, repair with a good quality superglue/CA like Zap-A-Gap.View Details
