The wooden models are authentic replicas made from the very finest grade of select kiln-dried Philippine mahogany wood. The models are made entirely by hand, from the hand carving of the fuselage, wings and tail section—to the sanding of the aircraft's contours.
Every part is assembled precisely into place using the highest quality adhesive available. After shaping and sanding, the model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors of of a selected historical aircraft. Artisans detail from researched reference materials, including all the insignias, squadron badges, nose art, emblems and serial numbers to replicate the original aircraft to scale. Next, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
