Often there are times when a complicated model needs to be built, and it may be beyond someone doing it at home with their own skills or lack of needed tools.

Or maybe there is no model in kit form of the car, boat, or aircraft they want to display.

In cases like these, it's time to turn to the experts and have a model created for you to display. A model of your favorite car, a relative's yacht, an aircraft you once flew.

These companies listed here can fabricate any kind of model you want, and provide special model building services for everyone, from large companies to a single model for an individual's office.

Aircraft models, ship and boat models. Models and props from famous TV shows and movies. Maybe a model of something from a book or piece of artwork.

Model Building Services

These People and Companies can make a model of anything you want.


Sometimes people are looking to have someone build a model kit for themselves. I can't build models for others myself, simply because I don't have the time (I work a lot of hours already with my career).

However -

Here is a list of various companies and people who provide such a service. Or if you need something custom produced or cast, many of these companies can do it. They can custom build a model of anything you want.

Please visit their web sites below, contact them, and go from there.


  • Be prepared before contacting a company!
  • Here's some tips -
  • 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.
  • Is there a particular scale you need?
  • 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?
  • How many of the models do you need? A single protoype? One off custom build? Or a production run of multiple models?
  • Does the model require a display base, background, or landscape?
  • I recommend getting several quotes and deciding from there on each companies proposals. Go with the one best suited for your needs.
