There range from scale static props, ordnance kits, dummy exhaust stacks, plus multiple cowls, canopies & scale spinners dedicated to a number of Jerry Bates plans. To help with your construction needs, we offer a range of useful building and finishing materials for the traditional model builder. These include the ZAP range of Cyanoacrylate and epoxy adhesives, our own range of epoxy skinning/laminating resins & glass cloths, plus surface finishing & masking products.
If your building time is limited, we also offer a custom building and finishing service. Over the past 14 years, this service has been utilized by some of the top model display pilots both in the UK and the USA. Models can be built from kits, plans or to our own design. We also offer a finishing & renovation/repair service for part built or damaged models. Look at the ‘Custom Building’ page to see some of our past projects.
