Wooden Models versus Fiberglass Models

Written by

The modelworks sales process begins with identifying the Size, Quantity, Type, Classification, Details and photos of a given model. Models are primarily made of Wood, Resin, Fiberglass and composite materials. The selection of one material over another depends on the Size, Quantity of a project build. For example, the fabrication of a 6 foot Airplane model would be built out of fiberglass because a wooden version would be far too heavy. On the other hand, a single order 16 inch model Aircraft would be fabricated out of wood, resin and composite materials. It is far more cost effective to fabricate a single model from wood. The process of producing anything out of fiberglass requires the creation of a MOLD. The Mold Casting process is 200% longer than carving a wooden aircraft model.

Custom Made McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle Model

Written by

The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) to gain and maintain air supremacy in aerial combat. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat, with the majority of the kills scored by the Israel Air Force.
