  • Be prepared before contacting a company!
  • Do you have images of the subject you want modeled. Photos, drawings, etc.?
  • Have you done the research? Is there a particular era model you need, such as a specific year, design, concept, or something of historic significance?
  • Decide how detailed you want the model to be. Just the outside features to display, or do you need interiors, cockpits, engine bays, etc.
  • Do you need lighting? Electronics? Moving Parts?
  • What is your time frame? How fast do you need it?
  • Do you already own the model to be built (un-assembled), or do you need to source one, or have one crafted completely by hand?
