Robert Kramar, owner and lead model maker of Master Designs, started model building at the age of 6 years old. It all started with a model train set for Christmas, and a couple of accessories that required assembly. While most kids are happy with the level of detail that a plastic model kit from a hobby store provides, Robert was always seeking additional detail. Scratchbuilding parts to add to model kits turned into scratchbuilding the entire model. At 14 years old, Robert started entering his models into state and regional model competitions. In 1991, Robert was one of the youngest modelers to win at the National level, and received several special awards. Master Designs was started by Robert his senior year of high school when he was contacted by customers to build custom models for their collection. With Robert studying architecture through the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America club at high school, and then onto Arizona State University in the School of Architecture, it was only natural to add architectural models to his list of services. It was in 1993 that Robert started laser cutting model parts to achieve repetitive detail that could not be achieved by hand. Several CAD, CNC and color print services were added to Master Designs though out the years, expanding the company into visual graphics, prototype packaging and signage. A division of custom MX trophies was added 10 years ago with Master Designs now creating custom trophies for all forms of racing, from RC cars to Snocross to Hare Scrambles. With Robert having almost 40 years of model making experience, and by Robert leading every project through the departments and staff of Master Designs, you can be assured to get the highest level of detail, accuracy, and design for your project needs.
