The company

The Casa della Maket company was created by Gilles Guiot in February 1988, opening a store at Locarno (Tessin-Switzerland), at the begining as reseller of prestigious brands (Métal Modeles, Pegaso Models, NCO Historex).In June 2013, this is the Atelier Maket company birth.
This is at this moment that the adventure begins in collaboration with Bruno Leibovitz from the Métal Modeles company and Christian Sauve from the NCO Historex company.
Atelier Maket is specialized in creating historical figurines kit 75 mm & 54mm (to mount and paint) napoleonic era and french army.
A large range illustres the different aspects of the first empire characters whose the main creators are Benoit Cauchies, Antonio Zapatero, Michel Saez & Alan Ball.
Other periods are also represented, especially with a dedicated range for the french army whose the main creators are Didier Dantel and Nicolas Pougis.
Each creation is subject to detailed histociral research made by Jean Claude Colrat from the Briquet association. Every steps of the fabrication and the conception are entirely fulfilled at the Metal Modeles company's workshop for the metal figurine draw and at the Grx Creation and NCO Historex' company for the resin draw. They also benefit from a unique expertise. A special care is taken in designing the different parts and their fitting.
Our goal is to offer to every figurines amateur, products whose the assembly and the decoration would be a true pleasure while respecting uniformology.
The relation of friendliness we established over the years between figurine's amateurs and professionals, is our main source of satisfaction. Meetings, talks, competitions and now internet allow us to listen to enthusiasts to better match their expectations.

Le facteur vient de me remettre un paquet venant de Verscio, c'est toujours bon signe! Voilà le Premier Consul accompagnée dans le coli de l'icône de la cavalerie légère, le sieur de Lasalle, le tout le produit par l'équipe de choc du Premier Empire, à savoir messieurs dames: à la sculpture el señor Zapatero, à la fonderie maître Leibovitz, à la distribution maître Guiot, le tout basé sur l'érudition de cette encyclopédie uniformologique ambulante qu'est JCC! Que dire, quelle éloge formuler pour exprimer ma satisfaction! Quelle équipe! Bravo messieurs les amis, ça c'est de la figurine!
