With a team of two full-time & two part-time builders with a combined 120+ years experience in many difference disciplines within RC fixed wing modelling, no project is too large or small for the Fighteraces team. We specialise in large scale Warbirds, but are happy to quote for any other type, except for rotary wing aircraft.  Kit, plan and scratch built models are all possible, as well as the completion of part built projects and the renovation of old models.

All complete build projects are quoted as a fixed project price (unless major unforeseen issues are encountered during the build, at which point further discussion will take place with the customer), where as repairs, renovations and completion of part built models are charged at a set hourly rate.

All build quotes are plus VAT, plus the cost of all adhesives, hardware and finishing products used during the build. Many hardware items such as retracts, engines etc, can also be supplied if required.

All build quotations are Plus VAT at the current rate.

Please feel free to email or phone +44 (0) 191 410 9523 or +44 (0) 7950 949726 ) us with any enquiries.
