SRT TARGET is a leading brand in 3D targets on archery courses, hunting training, instinctive shooting, leisure. In the form of animals very realistic, resistant.
Production Story at SRT Targets by Sandro Ruggiu and Andrea Albach starts with a combination of passion, skill and attitude in 1994.
Being both enthusiast archers, they shot each other at straw targets with paper animal figures appended on them at FIARC competition.
In love and full of ideas, they were thinking of many projects for the future. Their goal was to work together and to make a job they liked. Andrea worked as a Chemical Engineer at Bayer in Milan, where she researched the better polyurethane foam for 3d models.
In the meanwhile Sandro was developing his first 3D model, "Pasquale - il cinghiale" (Pasquale - the Boar in english), modeling the sculpture in his own home.
The consequences of these two events were pretty clear ...
Shooting at threedimensional targets was not so popular and limited to competitions only, but Sandro and Andrea were sure about the future success of the 3D shooting technique in Europe and they kept working on other models: "Emilio - il coniglio (Emilio - the rabbit ) "," Marcello - il forcello (Marcello - the cockpick) ".
During 1996 European exportation process started. Order request became high and high so Sandro and Andrea "attempt" to produce the first 3D model in three pieces, "Manolo - il capriolo (Manolo - the roebuck)".
Technical difficults and the large amount of time required artist skills.
From now on, the development of the models should be led by a professional sculptor. Only a sculptor could represent every detail on animal for every muscular movement in a realistic way. It was a huge success!
It is a trademark of this beatiful product. SRT Targets was born. From that moment on, SRT Targers developed every year new 3D models, from every dimensions, from Group 1 to Group 4.
SRT Targets is leader in Europe on 3D Targets development process, with a shipping distribution in all european countries.
SRT Targets scope is to create high quality, biometric realistic and as natural as possible 3D targets. Everything SRT Targets has done, but is looking for the best way to do it.
Foam research is a high quality and strict controlled step. Our research does not stop and our products are costly improved, to walk side by side with chemical technologies discoveries.
A trivial mirror copy of an existing 3D model could be a faster and cheaper way but it's not SRT Targets's philoshophy.
SRT targets project and create fauna european targets, to reproduce a real and possible hunting situation in european woods.
Is more probable to see a wonderful example of a chamois living in our montains that at Alligator in the Po river. So Targets production wants to go in this direction. Sandro and Andrea are proud and enthusiastic about their SRT Targets team, after many years, like the beginning:
First step to realize a 3D model is finding the correct posture.
When it's possible, the sculptor uses a model created by a tassidermist as model reference.
Starting from the right biometric dimensions, the process to give the animal model a correct hunting position begins.
Beyond sculptor skill, hunting archer knowledge is so necessary.
The artist, without a cooperation with an archer, would create a splendid but only "artistic" model, completely deprived of natural hunting aspects. This cooperation leads to better results.
To create a complete model of a single sculpture block
This is the MASTER, already split in three sections, ready to be used by mold experts.
A 3D animal model is generally split in several pieces. This separations depends on various factors.
A steel mold part is created for every piece. Every mold can weigh up to 400 kg. The mold parts realization, but it grants a reproduction 100% similar to the original model.
In to the mold the polyurethane misture is injected, and the chemical reaction makes the misture solidify almost immediately.
This is the brown bear head mold. Please note the complexity of open parts needed to extraxt the molded part.
And finally, our 3D model, polished and colored.
Finished works are packaged in the SRT Targets warehouse, where they wait to be sent all over the world
And, in the meanwhile you're reading this page, SRT Targets are creating a new 3D model for yor fun on the hunting field!
