Many B[e] stars show IR excess indicating the presence of circumstellar dust. However, HD 45677 is the only such star with a detailed model of its spectral energy distribution (SED), computed by Sorrell (1989). Here we present such modeling in the wavelength range 0.3 – 100 μm for a sample of 13 B[e] stars.
