SALES AND SERVICE
Most Doxaerie models are built on commission. However, now and then models are built on speculation, or an extra example is built of a commissioned model. These and some proof of concept models occasionally become available, and are listed below.
A small production run of 1/48 scale Boeing Stratoliner models is being planned, to be finished either painted as the restoration featured in this site, or clear varnished with markings If you have an interest in reserving one of these models, please contact Doxaerie.
If you would like to commission a model, please contact Doxaerie about your interests. Our special models are completely hand built, thus labor intensive and, depending on backlog, lead time may be considerable. A model may require from 200 to 800 hours to build, and prices reflect this.
MODELS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
The Curtiss E-Boat in 1/24 scale (wingspan 21"). Three of these models were constructed. The first, mostly butternut and walnut, went to the Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport, N.Y. The second, mainly walnut, is complete and available. This model is pictured here. The third, mostly cherry, has all parts fabricated, and can be completed fairly quickly. The price on the walnut or cherry model is $3200 plus shipping.
Doxaerie also has a number of parts, including turned fuselages in various woods, for the 1/24th scale Cunningham-Hall GA-36. Note the two models featured in the Gallery II area (and a drawing of which is at the top of this page). Contact Doxaerie if you are interested in commissioning one of these.
Doxaerie is presently accepting no further restoration commissions due to excessive backlog. However, if you have a valuable old model that is worth bringing back to life, we will continue to offer support and advice on how to go about getting it restored. Contact Doxaerie.

DYNA-MODEL KIT FITTINGS
Doxaerie has contracted with Tom Kemp of Dyna-Model Products to reproduce the complete cast metal fittings sets for two of the models released by Dyna-Model between 1946 and 1956. Limited numbers of sets are available, and come with copies of original plans and template sheets so that an original model can be made of these fine old kits. Available are the sets for the F8F Bearcat and the P-40F Warhawk. Each set is $30 post paid.
Doxaerie currently has three
sets of drawings available:
CAST METAL FITTINGS FROM VARIOUS SOURCES
Doxaerie has obtained a number of cast metal airplane fittings, some of which have been produced within the last 15 years or so and were complete or partial fittings sets for a projected line of solid wood model aircraft based on the design philosophy of the Dyna Model kits illustrated elsewhere in this site. Plans and decal sheets are available for a few of these. Others metal castings are copies of fittings found both in widely distributed kits in the Thirties and Forties and found individually in hobby shops of the time.
