At Icarus Originals, our aim is to provide our customers with truly unique products that are beautifully crafted, superbly packaged and represent a small piece of history. Whether it be items cast from the fastest ever Concorde airliner, the last ever Vulcan bomber to fly, or the iconic Intercity 125 locomotive, all our pieces blend high tech design and the best of traditional British craftsmanship to create a truly iconic, sentimental product.
Utilising a combination of advanced 3D scanning and the expertise of accomplished CAD design staff, we produce highly detailed and correctly proportioned renderings. Once ready, these are 3D printed in high resolution to create an initial ‘wax’ which can be cast as the master design. This stage can typically prove extremely challenging, and often it takes many attempts to get a working example that balances form and function. Once a design is signed off, it can be passed to our jewellery makers for casting.
