As long ago as 1980 Steve's moulding and casting ability was stretched to the limit when asked to produce three full size Ford Anglia Cars for a TV commercial - in just two weeks. The Panama Cigars Advert, 'Carlos Fandango Wheels' became a success from day one and can still be found on YouTube today. Steve's job satisfaction was sky high, and so, Creative Model making was established.
We have a wealth of model making experience under our belts, and most of our jobs are individual commissions. We make models for Advertising Agencies, Commercial Photographers, Exhibition & TV Set Designers and Contractors, TV Production Buyers, and Design Consultants.

Biog for Steve Watts:
Steve was born in Solihull, England, the middle child of a family of five.
After leaving school in the Seventies, Steve trained as a Carpenter/ Boat Builder, for a small firm in Solihull, which is about as far from the sea as you can get.
After a few years working in the Mould and Pattern Making side of the boat trade Steve became self employed as a boat builder. Soon after he was approached by a model maker in Coventry to build three full size Ford Anglia car bodies for a TV Commercial , this sparked the start of Creative Modelmaking.
For the last 35 years Steve has had a small workshop where he builds props, models, and displays for Advertising Agencies, Exhibition contractors, Film Companies, & Television Productions
