Welcome to the home of The Custom Model Company
When my stepson passed his Private Pilot’s Licence with flying colours I commissioned a custom made mahogany replica of the aircraft he solo'd in. Initially the 12 week wait for the model aircraft seemed like an eternity, however, having researched the work that goes into a bespoke aircraft model of this kind I soon came to realise that it wasn’t long at all.
When the model aircraft arrived I couldn’t stop gazing at it. What struck me most was the quality of the hand painted finish, it was truly remarkable. However, on closer inspection I started to notice a number of inaccuracies in terms of markings and scale. Nine out of ten people wouldn’t have noticed but as a pilot myself, attention to detail is my bread and butter, so needless to say these inaccuracies soon started to bother me. When I checked with a number of other aircraft model retailers to compare the quality of their offerings, I was astonished at the extremely high prices they were charging.
And so an idea was born! I would start a company to offer the highest quality, custom made and personalised aircraft models at affordable prices. Easier said than done! Next I embarked on a very long and painstaking search for a team of master craftsmen and gifted artists that could deliver without compromise on these requirements. My hard work eventually paid off such that today we can offer the highest quality model aircraft that you will find anywhere at prices that won’t break the bank.
The aircraft models featured on our website are just a small selection completed for customers. All you need is a photo of the aircraft you want to replicate or if you don’t have one, just a description will do, such as: British Airways Boeing 747-400, Registration G-BYGF, and we’ll take care of the rest using scaled blueprints and digital photographs from stock sources.
If you have any questions on the above or would like to know more about the many stages involved in bringing you a bespoke hand crafted mahogany aircraft replica, we would love to hear from you. Our details can be found on the Contact page where you will also find a quick and easy enquiry form.
