You can have an exact replica of your plane on
your desk at home, or in the office.
Aircraft Extras, Inc. has
partnered up with a custom model shop to offer exact replicas of your homebuilt
aircraft! These replicas are HAND CRAFTED by experienced modelers.
We are presently offering the RV-3, RV-4, RV-6, RV-7, RV-8, RV-9, & RV-10 models for a
low introductory price! The size of the RV models are running about 16" to
18" wing span.
Other homebuilt models are also available for
a MODEL made of MY PLANE first!
At first, I was skeptical that
anyone could do a good job replicating a model of my plane, especially just from
pictures. I didn't want to offer a product that I didn't feel was going to
be a good product. I felt the only way to see if they were any good, was to test
them, . . . so . . I ordered a replica of my plane! It took about 3-1/2
months to get, but I was really impressed with the overall quality. When I
received my model, it was very well packed and free of damage. When I
removed it from the box, WOW! It was like
looking at my own plane in miniature! It was an exact match of my plane!
I had them match up the colors
from a photograph I had sent in. They were a perfect match! All of the
little details were there as well, my antennas, the pitot tube, strobes, nav.
lights, the wing step, the exhaust pipes, & etc. My "N" numbers were painted on
the tail perfectly. Even the logo on the wing walk was there, "RV-6A"!
I kept looking for flaws, but I really couldn't complain about anything. I
showed this model to a lady friend that goes flying with me a lot. She even said
WOW! . . and she is not easily impressed! She said it would make a
wonderful gift for Christmas for any homebuilder/pilot.
replicate YOUR PLANE as well as mine was?
YES! If you provide Aircraft
Extras, Inc. with good documentation. . . . HERE's HOW
WHAT WE NEED
KEEP in MIND, . . we will produce
a perfect replica of your plane based upon the pictures and drawings that you
submit. Your replica will ONLY be as good as your documentation that you
1.) Provide us
as many pictures as you can! Youíll get them back when your model arrives. If
we cannot see it, we cannot replicate it.
2.) Let us
know if you want all of the antennas, lights, steps, canopy latch, gas caps, &
etc. detailed on your plane. Make sure that the pictures not only show their
details, but their locations too.
3.) Let us
know if you want your model to look any different than your pictures.
4.) Give us a
good representation of your true aircraft colors. Sometimes pictures are not
perfect color. If you can provide Paint Chips, this would be good. If you have
one picture that has a correct color representation, mark it clearly that we
are to use it for color matching. We do not paint with metal flake, but we
will match the color as close as possible.
5.) Tell us
how you want us to represent your landing lights, canopy, etc. Usually, the
landing lights on front of wings, and the canopy glass is painted grey. The
air intakes and the front of the cowling intakes are usually painted black. How should these be represented if different?
6.) Each model
comes with a finished dark wood base. It usually has a logo carved on it that
is normally painted. Another brass looking tag can be located on the base
containing text. Tell us what this should look like. What should the text say?
