Hands down the most realistic replica I have ever ordered. The interior detailing is second to none. Many companies can only provide painted windows. Model Works were able to provide with a full interior at a very high quality while providing a very competitive rate.

One of the best customer service that I have experienced. They worked with me with every detail of my custom order.

I wanted to mail you earlier, but the holidays really messed up my schedule, so I didn’t get to letting you know that the models came in on Christmas Eve. Right on time 😊

They look amazing. Thanks to everyone involved in building them. Dutch is very happy with the result. So again, a big THANK YOU!

Best wishes,

Laureen Schenk LL.M., Research Coordinator

These guys were awesome. They were willing to satisfy my difficult requires and the best part of my experience was working with directly with the owners of the company. They were willing to bend over backwards and very flexible with my needs and even gave me a discount for being a return customer.

The balance of quality and the price they offer is hard to beat. I will be ordering again.

I have to say, this was one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. I absolutely love the work you have done to make this F4U perfect. I genuinely thank you for your hard work in the process. Please thank the other members of your team for me as well. This recent purchase is now the first in my collection of WWII era ships and planes I wish to begin compiling. I will for sure be reaching out to you again in the near future for more orders.

Please tell your group that the model was absolutely outstanding! It is the best work I have seen. (I have 9 other display models to compare with) Expect a second order from me for the same plane shortly. Please use me as a reference to other companies. Thank you!

Thank you again. The car is brilliant! Attached is the slide deck I did for my husband so he would have something to open on his birthday. I was, seriously, looking for several years, each birthday and Christmas.
