Model Production

Producing these 1/50th scale cast aluminum DC-8 models is a time consuming, costly, highly labour intensive and material intensive process.

First of all, we invested heavily in the manufacture of costly aluminum molds (both patterns and pouring blocks), a period which took us one year from start of completion.
Each model is comprised of a hollow fuselage section, a main wing section, four engine castings, the stand casting, as well as engine, stand and fuselage attachment bolts and screws.

After an order is received, all the parts are cast in our production shop from the molds in aircraft grade aluminum.
