This page will cover the history and how it all started

For over 28 years, I have enjoyed building scale models.  I have built, customized, and super-detailed many differnt lines of models from Tanks, Airplanes, Cars, Artillery, Figures, RC, to full Dioramas (scenes of battles, figures, vehicles, etc.).  LAtely we have been fully involved with bringing custom action figures to life.

I have won over 30 awards for display models and custom figures and have had dioramas on display at the Pentagon, The Naval War College, Schools, Private Collections, and Military Academies all over the world.  I have learned my skils through many years of both training and trial & error. You can see these skills in the weathering and realistic painting technique. We have learned from such noted experts as Verlinden, Shepard Paine, etc. Experience and years of making military models taught me patience and a true sense of accomplishment. Custom items should not be rushed because they are now a work of art.  Making time to do it right means the world to me and those working with me. Attention to dertail makes all the difference.  My heart and soul is applied to each figure and vehicle I choose to make so my clients and customers remain happy with their purchase.  That is why i chose to ensure each one is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece... NEVER TO BE DUPLICATED.

I began making custom action figures about 15 years ago because I wanted to create figures that manufacturers didn't know we wanted or needed to complete our collections. Many of us just want our own character brought to life. I think collectors wanted that kind of outlet adn help - I was right!!  My first was a custom Deadpool made from a Marvel Spiderman.  I quickly saw the potential and began a small business for friends and serious collectors.  ebay allowed me to make these available to a growing market.  From there, I was sought out to create special commission projects for other collectors adn movie-makers. SMArt-Customs was born and the rest is history.  My feedback is 100% positive because I take the time to do it as I would want it done for myself.  Each one I create is harder to let go of because I'd love to keep them all for my own collection. We see that as a good sign. Afterall, you have to please the client AND yourself if you want your work to exceed expectations.

I apply my modeling knowledge and skill to each item so that you have a real work of art that is not only collectible, but has honest value that will only increase.  My goal is to provide figures and vehicles that will make your collection better than the next person's.  Competition is a good thing, but knowing you have the best is always better, isn't it?
