Default Custom Atlantic Models

Hello,

Considering having Atlantic Models customize some 100 scale models, ordering directly off their website.

Does anyone have any recent experience with Atlantic, doing so? I called, been told it takes about 6 weeks. Positives, negatives? Will they work with you on pricing if you order multiples or become a "regular" customer?

Thinking that it may be time to have some custom models made, for various aircraft/airline models that I cannot obtain otherwise. Hoping for some input. Thanks.

Atlantic Models time frame depends on their workload. You may want to call Roger Jarman over there to discuss prices. I have a few of his models. They are all one of a kinds. They do an excellent job and carefully pack them for transport. Whatever time it takes is well worth it in the end. Just remember that "multiple items" means many different things. If it is ones then it takes just as much time. If it is many of one particular then ask him about reductions.

Dino, I have ordered a number of custom models from Atlantic Models over the past 10 years, the most recent about 2 months ago. I arranged to pick up my model at their office in Miami and was treated to a tour of their facilities. Roger Jarman is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with.

My model was carefully packed for shipping.

I'm getting ready to place a follow on order with them.

Hope this helps in your decision making.

Hi Dino,

Hope all is well.

I have engaged with Atlantic Models on several model restoration projects as well as a few custom model orders via other collectors over the years. As others have mentioned, their workload can occasionally slow down estimated delivery of models.

I personally know Roger Jarman and his wife for many years and can confidently recommend Atlantic Models to you.



Regards, Robert

Atlantic Models are so crude, inaccurate, and lacking in detail. Why would anyone want to collect them? Serious question.

Serious answer; originality and uniqueness are some of my collecting criteria, even if the work is sometimes less hightech.

Another serious answer. I have an Atlantic 1/72 DC7C BOAC, and a 1/72 Sabena DC6B which has some nice detailing on it. Both very nice models IMO.

Fair enough! Thank you for the replies. MSR777, I'd be curious to see pictures of those models. Is there an option to order models with more detailing than the standard ones pictured on the Atlantic Models website?

Back around 2007 I had several custom Atlantic Models made in 1/100 and 1/144 scale. All had rolling rubber tires and most had spinning engines. I have seen about a dozen custom Atlantic Models over the years. Mine included a 1/100 Arizona1 America West 757, 1/144 Air Jamaica A340 and a 1/100 AeroMexico DC-8 50 series.
They also had vhf antennas and static discharge ports on the wings. Back in the day when they were producing these in limited numbers I saw at least 7-8 757's with rolling tires and spinning engines, they did an Eastern L-1011, a battleship UAL 744 with spring acutated gears that drooped just like the Herpa premiums and I have seen a UAL Brasilia in 72nd scale.

On my last visit last year I saw C-17s in various scales with full flaps down.

I am including an old link to my collection from 2007 which if you go thru the pics you will see 2 of those models mentioned above.
