VERTIGO Miniatures? What is it?

It is the fulfillment of my dream. When I was 20 years old, right after the Gentle Revolution in 1990, I read an article about Revell, I was amazed at the complexity and sophistication of production in this company. Of course, also surprised at how much it costs to produce a model from A-Z.

I am fascinated by this process, and at that time I dreamed about how one day I too would have a company that makes things for modelers.

Many years have passed since then, and model making was still my hobby.

It was only in 2011 that I gradually got to my first production of figurines, busts and accessories. And suddenly the brand VERTIGO Miniatures was born, I admit that I was inspired in the name by a song by my favorite group U2.

I started to learn and gradually progress step by step, yes, it was literally pioneer beginnings for me, and one learns the most from one’s own mistakes.

Gradually I started to design more and more products, it is true that in this process people with whom I worked came to me, but with some we had to part ways forever.

That’s life too, but I’ve lasted 12 years.

I learned a lot during that time, because someone cannot know everything right away.

And that’s why I want to thank all my friends, modelers and family who have supported me and continue to support me on this path that I chose for myself.
It was a good 12 years of getting to know each other, making mistakes, but also taking steps that took me further.

Now the time has come when I want to move even further and not stop making our hobby more fun and varied. That is why there is a new e-shop, in which we will mainly focus on better communication with you, our customers, news and support.

You can look forward to new products, tutorials and especially personal meetings at competitions.
Thank you for your support so far and I am happy that our relationship has lasted all these years and we will still be in touch.
