More Model Airplanes by Fred Olds
Poplar wood models of WW2 airplanes
By Stephen Sherman, Dec. 2009. Updated January 23, 2012.
Making model airplanes from plastic model kits always challenged me. But my friend Fred Olds actually makes them out of poplar wood, from scratch. The beautifully finished and painted models that he sent me a few months ago speak for themselves. He shared a few more recently.
Fred also makes models on commission. Send me an email if you would like him to make a model for you. They are flawlessly finished and absolutely beautiful; would look great in an office, den, or family room. They have a 50 inch plus wing span on multiple engine planes; fighters are up to 30 inch wing span.
