About Us

ModelWorks Direct is owned and operated by a team of architects, fabricators, and builders. We have over 40+ years of experience in Model Fabrication. ModelWorks Direct custom builds model aircraft, ships, cars and just about anything under the sun. Most companies simply buy models from freelancers or hire cheap labor to build low-quality models, their company owners have no fabrication skills whatsoever! ModelWorks Direct is the ONLY owner-operated builder with "actual hands-on experience" in the Model Fabrication industry.
