Working from exact aircraft blueprints, the majority of these beautiful replica models are hand sculptured by master craftsmen who use premium treated Philippine mahogany wood. Each model passes through several stages of sanding and priming before talented artists apply paint and detail. Extreme care is made to apply historically accurate aircraft markings and emblems. Before completion, each model receives several coats of clear lacquer to create not only a spectacular work of aviation art, but to insure each model will be a lasting addition to any airline or aircraft model collection.
