The BAe English Electric Lightning P-1 model takes life through this painstakingly hand carved solid “renewable” mahogany wood model - 100% hand made by our highly experienced and talented craftsmen. Scaled from an exact blueprint, this piece of detailed hand painted art will be cherished by present and future generations to come. The fully assembled model comes with a natural stained solid mahogany (or mahogany with steel arm) stand and is ready to display on your desk or book case. The photographs you see have not been manipulated or digitally edited - they are exactly as the model looks in real life but unfortunately even digital photography cannot do full justice to the look and feel of the model!
Dimensions of the model are:-
BODY LENGTH: 17.00 INCHES (43.20 CM), WINGSPAN: 10.70 INCHES (27.20 CM), SCALE: 1:39
ModelBuffs can also manufacture a similar aircraft in any other livery or markings that you desire - just contact us for further information on this model.
PRODUCTION PROCESS: All ModelBuffs models are shipped direct from the factory and to keep our prices as low as possible we only manufacture to order which means that you will have to wait a period of 28 – 35 days before the model is shipped *. There are many production processes to accomplish but of utmost importance is the time required to “stabilize” the model and through this curing period we ensure that the museum quality product will last for generations to come. Each ModelBuffs masterpiece is distinctively made with premium select grade kiln dried mahogany wood (ensuring the model will not crack over time) and carved and hand painted by our proficiently skilled master artists. A final touch of matte or gloss clear lacquer gives the model plane a honed, polished and sophisticated look. Optional display accessories are also available for your model planes including the variable pitch wall mount, allowing your model plane collectibles to be perfectly displayed on the wall, ceiling or virtually anywhere around your house or office. *Excludes National Holidays
SHIPPING METHODS: All CQout "Standard" shipping rates are for Air Parcel Post and for "Express" we use FedEx International Economy Courier from the Philippines where our factory is based. Air Parcel Post* takes 14 – 21 days and is “trackable” for most major countries and is extremely safe and reliable as well as being very cost efficient given the very large box sizes that these models require. FedEx however only takes 3 - 4 days anfd is fully insured. We wish to stress the time period involved so you are not disappointed at a later stage. Please only bid or buy if you can wait for this period of time. *Uninsured

We can make models from 6 inches to 10 feet in length or to any specific scale that you may require.

Any logo can be painted or carved onto the stand or a brass plaque with your personal inscription can be included to give that final finishing touch to your model.
Working from your photographs and our library of blueprints, our master craftsmen will meticulously recreate your item into an amazingly detailed desktop or wall mounted replica. Each model is hand carved from kiln dried solid mahogany and completely hand painted to match the original paint scheme and fine marking detail. No detail will be spared!
