Nice Airplanes Custom Made Aircraft and Submarine Models
Welcome to the home of Nice Airplanes Limited.

You'll find a very small selection of aeroplane and submarine models on the website. It is important to remember that we specialize in custom made desktop models with paint schemes right down to the individual squadron, airline, aircraft or submarine and year. We would like you to have the custom airplane or submarine model you remember and the exact one you would like. We are well used to making new types each week so if you don't see it here, please contact us. It could be that we've already made the type, but are not showing it on the website.

It takes many weeks to complete each model. Nice Airplanes models are not mass-produced, but generally in single custom orders. Nice Airplanes does not keep stocks, nor do we outsource,  so order today and consider how impressive the exact airplane you would like would look in your home or office. From armaments to stands we are totally flexible. Accuracy is very important for us which is why many of our customers become avid collectors.

Tiger Moth flights

Tiger Moth custom desktop model


wingspan of 17 inches or 43.2 cm

Believe it or not, Nice Airplanes does not use decals! Some small aerials are made of metal where wood would not be possible to be accurately cut.

From private civilian aircraft such as the Tiger Moth to all squadron aircraft from World War 1, through World War 2 and right up to current day - any air arm - we will make it for you - at a great price too!  Helicopters, of course!  Our airliners are very accurate indeed.  Please do not hesitate to ask for a quote - it only takes a moment or two!  For instance, if you would like a VC10, Victor, Vulcan or Jet Provost in a particular squadron or individual aircraft markings just ask, we will make it for you. Historic aeroplanes are made as well and we do not charge outrageous prices for custom made models. Classic aeroplanes such as the Fairey Hendon, Fairey Barracuda, Short Sunderland, Blackburn Beverley, Vickers Valetta, Handley Page Hastings right through to Concorde are a delight for us to make.

If you would like a Flyvevåbnet desktop model, RDAF desktop model, Luftwaffe desktop model, RNoAF desktop model, Ilmavoimat desktop model or Luchtmacht desktop model, let us make it for you. We make custom desktop models and ours are really impressive.
