Design And Sculpting
Once accurate plans have been sourced sculpting can begin. We use an epoxy putty
material called Milliput together with parts turned on a lathe, and a wide range of tools
to form the component parts that will make up the aircraft. Our aircraft design and
sculpting techniques have evolved over many years to allow us to recreate highly
detailed accurate aircraft models.
The sculpting process begins with accurate plans and takes several weeks to complete
using a wide variety of tools.
Parts formed from Milliput require several stages of adding material. Initially these
parts are very crude but after filing and then applying more Milliput until the correct
profile is eventually achieved.
Completed parts are test fitted. Larger parts do not have detail added at this stage.
Small parts are also made from Milliput.
