engineered card models to enhance your model aircraft collection
card models can be used to build or enhance your model airport,
or to display individual aircraft models to their best advantage.
Models are currently available in 1:400 and 1:500 scales and are
suitable for use with all model aircraft at those scales.
The range includes
hangars, control towers, terminal buildings and a variety of accessories.
New models are being added all the time, so check our website frequently
to see what's new.
Each model has
been designed with great care to fit together neatly and to provide
a realistic backdrop to your model collection. Each one comes with
a detailed set of illustrated instructions and can be constructed
by anyone with some modelling skill. We have also given each model
a Skill Rating to indicate how difficult
it is to make.
The models are
printed on high quality A4 card, (matt card is used, as it gives
a more realistic finish at these scales). For models that can have
open doors (like hangars) there is always internal detail, so the
model looks just as good on the inside as it does on the outside.
models are made of card, they are surprisingly strong. They have
been designed to be as rigid as possible while still representing
realistic buildings and accessories. Card models have been used
for many years by railway modellers with great success; Airport
Designs now extends this tradition into the world of airport modelling.
