Nice Airplanes Custom Made Desktop Models - United States Navy - United States Marine Corps Custom Models
Just a few types and squadrons to represent what we are capable of when making USN or USMC aircraft from the past right through to today. If you are a member of the Navy Tailhook Association you will really enjoy our models.

If you would like a particular squadron or even individual aircraft such as from Pappy Boyingtons Black Sheep VMF-214 or perhaps an F-8E Crusader from any VF- or VMF- squadron, we will be delighted to make it for you. Of course we will quite happily make very detailed helicopters, such as the Bell UH-1B, Bell UH-1E, Bell UH-1N, Bell AH-1G, Bell AH-1Z, SH-60B Seahawk, SH-60F, HH-60J Jayhawk or HH-60H, then our dedicated Rotary Wing page will also interest you. We can even make a Bell HSL custom model.

Training aircraft make nice models too. Whatever, the type or unit, be it a T-2A or T-2C Buckeye, T2V-1 or
T-1A Seastar, TF-9J Cougar, we can do it.  VT-4 or VT-9 we'll do it. If you would like a T-45 Goshawk we can do that too.

F2H Banshee, F7U Cutlass, F3D Skynight, Douglas A-3 Skywarrior, FJ-1 Fury, F9F Cougar, F9F-8P Photo-Cougar, AJ-2 Savage, C-2A Greyhound, F-14A Tomcat, F/A-18 Hornet, F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, EA-6B Prowler, S-3 Viking, C-9B Skytrain, P-3A Orion, even a NSAWC F-16B Fighting Falcon would be straightforward for us. We'll tailor it to the correct squadron markings, make the right variant, aerial fitment and even offer a full choice of weapon options. You'll also find we enjoy making models, so if your type or squadron is not listed, please contact us and you'll be delighted with our dedication for accuracy.  Although there is not a P-3 Orion model shown on this page, there is a sensational NOAA WP-3D Orion on the Home page, a beautiful P-3B Orion on the RNZAF page and a superb F-18 Hornet on the RCAF page. Each of those demonstrates our commitment to making outstanding models.

We would also be very happy to make any Martin AM1 Mauler, Grumman AF Guardian be it a AF-2S or AF-2W. As usual, we can offer any squadron that these aircraft served in.
