My name is Donivan Godsil. After years of seeing custom model airplanes offered online, and the regular 'production planes' available from business online... I finally bit the bullet and had your company build me a model of the club plane of which I fly.

I'm a member of the Monmouth Flying Club, out of Monmouth, Illinois. We are a small club, with a 1975 Cessna 172N Skyhawk. We have had the plane two years. I sent in several photos to you along with my deposit... and today, FedEx brought me one of the most amazing pieces of art I've ever seen.

I'm a perfectionist, and even if I WANTED to critique this model in any negative way... I COULDN'T! The lines are straight, there were no smudges in paint, no fingerprints, everything was even, the detail was remarkable. The stand the plane sits on is even beautiful.

I showed it to my instructor, and he couldn't even find a detail looked over.... This is simply perfect. Your worker's craftsmanship is amazing. The prices are right, and the wait is more than worth it. This is a museum quality model.

I'll be getting in touch with you soon for another one, for my instructor as a gift. Until then... MANY THANKS!!! Excellent job!

Hello. My good friend, Ed Viveiros, had a model made for me. My Dad was a Navy pilot who died, on active duty, at the age of 35. As I became proficient at researching the Internet I found out all about his career. I was given a mug from his Squadron mates at his funeral. I was only 10 years old. It took me 45 years to connect the mug with him. The Squadron logo on the base of the model is a perfect match to the mug.

The Skyraider your company made is exquisite. Every time I see the model it brings back memories and pride in my Dad. Thanks to all who helped my friend make my family an heirloom.

I have one word that all military people understand; OUTSTANDING !
