Reduced Aircraft Factory

WWI miniatures and miscellanea.
About
Some details on my models:  All model design is done in Blender.   Renders are done with a combination of Blender, Terragen, and Photoshop.  Almost all designs are available in 1:144 and 1:285 (1:288) scales, and a few are available in other scales such as 1:200, 1:350, and 1:600.  

Let me know if you have any special requests.  While I cannot promise when I'll get to them, I'll at least bump them up in the queue.  I tend to stick to WWI, though, as I don't really have enough time to do all the designs I would like, even given that restriction.  Most of my models fill in gaps that other designers have overlooked, but I'm slowly building up an inventory of the more common aeroplanes too, anticipating the day when there will be new materials or color choices available to us.

A good place to find out more about WWI models, colors, and gaming is http://wingsofwar.org.  If I don't feature a particular WWI model, you might try checking Decapod Models, Columbia Aerodrome, wow, Kampfflieger, Arctic Skunk, or others.  AEModels, Carlos2K, and others have some nice WWII designs also.

A note on materials:  Detail Plastic clearly has the best detail and smoothness, but it is brittle and it can have problems of crystalization on the surface (see the relevant threads on the forum), and it is expensive for larger models.  I find it best for small models like accessories and 1:285 and smaller.   Versatile plastic is usually the cheapest, but it can deform under pressure, and it has a (relatively) fuzzy surface.  PA12 is strong and robust, with a surface smoothness between the other two, but it is price-competitive with Versatile Plastic only at certain sizes.
