McDonnell Douglas MD-11
Aircraft Collection models are collection pieces for the following technical reasons. Firstly, the models are limited editions and hand-crafted. Secondly, the replica is an accurate scaled-down model of the original aircraft. All specifications of the airplane’s design are religiously respected for accuracy. Thirdly, the wood is carefully chosen for its natural beauty, colour and grain in function to the type of aircraft model. A pre-determined time is taken to dry and conserve the wood before the hand-crafting by our artists.
In the final phase, the model receives a unique pellicle coating devised by the technical advisors of the Aircraft Collection which enhances, once again, the natural beauty of the wood and provides a durable protection for years to come.
The wood used in the fabrication, known as King Mahogany, is not painted in the finishing phase so the natural beauty of the wood’s grain adds distinction to the hand-crafted model. The wood receives a base protection which prevents drying out and cracking. Occasional cleaning maintenance with a citrus-based oil product is sufficient is keeping the collection piece beautiful even after year after year of display in your company office or private home.
