Airmodel Company is a small group of highly qualified, expert
modelers who create replica aircraft for passionate aviation
in 1991, Classic Aircraft Model's roots go back to World War
Two. Back then, American soldiers were given small wooden
airplanes to aid them in identifying the myriad of aircraft
fighting in the skies. Though often carved by Boys Scouts, these
were not toys, but life or death recognition aids.
Not many of
these "Recognition Models" exist. However, one of the
most intact collections is owned by Classic Aircraft Model's
President, Dick Miller. Back in 1991, Miller decided to preserve
these amazing relics of history by creating resin cast- models
of them and supplying them to museums such as the Smithsonian
and National Air and Space museum.
In the rush of
war, the original injection-molded recognition models (made from
nitro-cellulose plastic) resulted in interesting historical
artifacts, but were not exact scale models. These original
plastic ID recognition models were used to make the molds for
our classic ID recognition replicas.
Collector's Airmodel Company makes airplanes of all sizes,
shapes and colors with the intent of providing the discerning
collector with pieces of history, as accurately as humanly
website, look at our products and when you're ready to own the
definitive small-scale replica, understand that "Accuracy
is in the Details."
