World Class Commercial Model and Pattern Making

Welcome to Supermarine Works. Our website, which champions Britain's most famous fighter and is devoted to providing top class commercial model/pattern making. 

We can provide full pattern making service to briefs.  We cater for all composite work, including moulds and tooling for vac forming.  Our speciality, is the painting and finishing of scale replica aircraft, where we take a basic air frame and transform it into a complete representation of the full size. 

The crucial part of this art is to give the model a finish as if it has been "shrunk down" from the full size, including all weathering, be it subtle or heavily ingrained.  On this site you can find and order the now famous Flying Legends all composite, 1/4 scale Spitfire kit. Links to films of it in action and all the latest matierial.
