With production facilities near the former Clark Air Base in the Philippines, PlaneArts
is a Pilot owned and operated company
selling hand painted wood model airplanes direct from our factory and not through marketing
or distribution companies. The exactness and detail of your model is guaranteed from
start to finish. Ideal for birthday or Christmas gifts, presentations, collector’s items,
desktops, showcases, museums, flying schools, reception areas, offices and many aviation or
other related locations
All models shown on our website have been hand carved and hand painted
by our own highly talented master craftsmen. The model you receive will be identical in looks and quality to those you see in the hundreds
of photographs on our website (these photographs have not been digitally enhanced and reflect the true features of the model).
Unfortunately even a photo cannot show what you will see or feel in real life. There is no plastic, resin, die cast or artificially
made model that will come close to unique warm feel and touch of a truly hand made wood model . These models will last for generations
to come and will become family heirlooms. Please visit our Testimonial Page or Customer Reference Page to see the kind words that have been said about our models.
If you do not find the model you require in our extensive database we can make a customised model of your own or
favourite airplane, warplane, helicopter or airship by sending your specifications and digital images through email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Any plane type painted in any
livery or paint scheme and made specifically to your specifications including a custom base with your choice of logo
and / or a brass plaque with your personal wording of up to 4 lines. A full quotation will be given within 48 hours and digital
photos emailed to you of the final model before despatch.
Most of our models are made to order and take about 8-10 weeks* to manufacture (even customized models) which is far quicker than most other companies who charge more and take longer! You will also notice that we offer
standard models at prices way below other companies advertising on the web because we ship directly from our factory and not
through other marketing or distribution companies. Models are shipped through FedEx International
Economy courier service and delivered worldwide within 5
business days (FedEx Priority also available 1-3 business
days) direct to your home whether it be across the Pacific or the Atlantic. Each model includes
a stand of your choice and export packing in 300 Pound Strength Cardboard boxes with closely cut foam inserts to ensure
the safest possible "ride" for your airplane model. *from date of order confirmation
Working from your photographs and our library of aircraft blueprints, our master craftsmen will meticulously recreate your airplane into an amazingly detailed desktop replica. Each model is hand carved from solid mahogany and completely hand painted to match your aircraft paint scheme and registration number. No detail will be spared!

PlaneArts can make almost any model to the highest of specifications. If we have not made a particular model before then we will get scale plans and use our own digital pictures of the aircraft or get them from stock sources. Color schemes both actual and to your design can be applied, and you can specify the scale size of your model. As it is sometimes difficult for us to see from digital images the exact color of certain parts of the plane it would help if you could let us have the closest Pantone color for each part of section of the body. This can easily done by checking the Pantone Color Chart which you can access by clicking on the appropriate button on the menu portion on the left hand side of this screen.
