GRP Replica Aircraft
Our glass fibre replicas are produced from mould-tools that were taken from real aircraft, this ensures that all the dimensions and details are correct. The aircraft are made with an internal steel support system, the main wings, blade assembly and undercarriage are detachable for ease of transportation and the replicas are easily assembled on site by our trained personnel if required.
All replicas are suitable for display using any one of the following three methods:
- Free standing – This version, the replicas are complete with undercarriage legs and glassfibre wheels. It is possible for us to source and supply real wheels at additional cost.
- Pole mount – The design and installation of the pole is the customers responsibility, however we will work with the customer to incorporate the necessary fittings into the replica for the fixing to the plinth.
- Hanging – This method of display is very popular with museums with limited floor space. Also the ability to show as in flight with any angle possible. We will fit certificated eye bolts as necessary.
All replicas are complete with a quality paint finish to customer’s own choice of scheme and markings. The VI replica is fully sign-written.
If the replicas are to be displayed outdoors, we will fit the appropriate restraining eyes, but the customer will be responsible for the construction of anchorage points. The weights of the replica aircraft are approximately 850kgs, with the VI weighing 300kgs.

Obviously, our replicas are our pride, but we would be just as happy making anything in GRP, including:
We pride ourselves on doing the seemingly impossible when it comes to GRP repairs. Look at the photos of the Willerby caravan, it came to us with football size holes and left with a pristine new gel finish. This led to a Carmen, like the Willerby, old and very rare, being brought over from Sweden for the same treatment.
