Are CAC models expensive?
Well, they're not toys and yes, some customized airplanes can go
However, most CAC models can be purchased for between $90 to
airplanes do you model?
Better to ask, which ones DON'T we model, and that one is the
Aurora top-secret airplane rumored to be in service with the
United States Air force. But we can assure you that once we get
good, reliable information on it, we'll make it available.
3. Can I
get a custom-made model?
Certainly. In fact, it's our specialty. Nose art,
markings, colorations...you name it. Of course, the process is
rather involved because we'll want to get it just right. But if
you can articulate it, we can probably do it.
4. Are CAC
models like the wooden ones I see in national magazines and
NO! Our models are made of resin and/or plastic. There is simply
no way we can reproduce the intricate details and textures with
wood. In addition, our models are made one-by-one, by hand.
long does it take to get my model?
Depending upon the airplane, 2-12 weeks. Of course, the
custom-models are more towards the 12 week deadline. On
particularly popular airplanes, we may have a few
"blanks" ready to be hand detailed at a moment's
6. How do
I pay for my CAC model?
Credit Cards are accepted as are checks. However,
you'll understand why we don't begin construction until the
order is paid for. Use our Acrobat order form for convenience.
there a guarantee on the airplane?
Of course. If you don't like it, you don't pay for it.
Custom-models carry a few more strings, but we still stand by
the basic workmanship of the airplane.
8. How do
Our packing is legendary. Shipped UPS and cradled in
little bits of soft foam, your airplane is shipped insured and
9. Do you
have brochures to view?
Certainly. Just check us out on the Contact Us
portion of our web site and write, email, fax or call us at
what is "resin?"
Resin is a sweeter name for epoxy-polymer. It's a
two-part formulation that hardens like steel but retains
plastic's durability. In a pinch, we'll construct an airplane
from a plastic kit (but we often modify it heavily), but 90% of
the time, we're able to construct precise molds for resin.
11. Can I
have a tiger-striped B-17 with jet engines affixed under the
Certainly...but...why would you...never mind. We'll do
guys must be getting rich.
Nope. We just love airplanes, like you. When you have a
passion for something, it's hard not to share it. If we could
give these away, we would. However, our modelers are certainly
worth their wage.
