Aviator Gear Custom Civilian Extra 300 Custom Desktop Model

Hand-carved & painted with precision.

Mahogany is one of the strongest hardwoods out there, and the obvious choice when placed in the hands of expert craftsmen. We use only automotive grade paints, so you'll have a durable model aircraft replica that can be passed down for generations.

Aviator Gear A-10 Warthog Custom Desktop Model Bottom

We drill down on the hardware.

When we say our craftsman are experts... they're experts. They'll run through every external configuration, weapon, sensor, or targeting pod with a fine tooth comb until it looks like someone took a shrink ray to your actual aircraft.

“PERFECTION! I am blown away by the accuracy and detail of the model I ordered. Eloisa was a pleasure to work with and I am in awe of the craftsmanship that went into making the miniature of my plane. I just unpacked the box about 30 minutes ago and couldn't wait to post this review.”
