Here you will find a scale model aircraft gallery displaying my most recently built airplane model kits. Enjoy the vast photo selection of highly detailed and historically accurate plastic scale model replicas. Airplane models that will take you back on a historical journey of military flight and the legendary aces that flew them. Also, if you are a scale model aircraft enthusiast, please take advantage of my tutorial pages, where I have posted many articles on the art of building plastic scale model aircraft.
Although I build a wide variety of airplane model kits, Model Aces specializes in World War II military aircraft in 1/72, 1/32 and 1/48 scale. The featured column to the left, displays an excellent example of my most recent plastic scale model aircraft project.
Please know that my enthusiasm for military scale model aircraft does not reflect my opinions on war, politics and destruction.
Take notice that although my scale model aircraft commission pricing is moderate, quality and attention to detail are not sacrificed. Every plastic scale model is exceptionally well built and I will be happy to provide you with a decent estimate on the airplane model build.
Be sure to visit my web site periodically for announcements, tutorials, tips and the latest photos of my built scale model aircraft. Also, I welcome any questions, comments or feedback you may have regarding my airplane model kits, scale model building tutorials or my website as well as suggestions for new links to be added to my resource pages. Thank you for taking the time to visit, I look forward to building for you.
Every scale model aircraft I build receives the same care. For that, I spend time studying the original airplane, its history and its operation before I begin building the plastic scale model. I use a high quality Badger airbrush together with an Iwata compressor. I utilize various types of primers [primer paints are used after joints are seated as well as possible], Tamiya acrylic paints, Model Master enamels and Gunze paints on all my airplane model kits. Weathering and dry brushing is applied on interior parts such as the cockpit and engine, as well as the exterior of the aircraft. A coat of Future floor wax is applied to every scale model aircraft prior to decal application allowing the aircraft to accept the decals well. I then use a special setting solution to soften the decal so it can sit well along the surface of the plastic scale model, making it look like it is part of the paint job. I then seal the entire scale model aircraft with a choice of gloss or dull coat - usually its dull coat - to seal the decals. The completed plastic scale model is extremely accurate and historically correct in construction, markings, customizations and finish.
