Yeah. I just did a search looking for time to build, and cost, of a WWI plane - figured that was about as simple as you can get. Only thing I found really that a flyable WWI replica would take 2 years working full time every day. Didn't say if that was a kit (they do sell them), or from scratch. Also did not say if that was by one man, or more. I was trying to find time, so didn't look into pricing on anything, whatever, won't be cheap I'll bet. Even with a non-flying plane, it will take time, and a good chunk of money, full size at least. I would say a large model would be more likely to be able for one man to make, faster to make, and cost a lot less.By the way, what airplane do you want modeled, and are you sure you want 1:1? A full size airplane takes a lot of time to build, even if it won't be flown.
Thank you again for your good thoughts and positive attitude , Charley. I will check back of course in a few days and respond with the model type and 3D files only to people who are strongly motivated to do so. I mean no offence but in my country and in other countries many people made many promises to help me but they didn't kept their word. It will be a nicely done WW2 fighter replica ( the length will be 6 to 7 meters long maximum) from plywood, polystyrene or fiberglass. The 3D frame(the body) will be split into small pieces, every piece will be cut on the CNC and then all the pieces assembled (like lego or puzzle pieces) . I would have done it myself, but in my country (Romania) people who have CNCs work for their own manufacturing companies and usually they are scumbag communist thinkers. What the heck, this is my beautiful land with ugly people. Thank you all for your support and help. Don't worry about the shipping, I will take care of it also. With a team of 3 people , it can be done in less than one month !!!Marian,

A former friend of mine made the Pan Am China Clipper model that's in the Smithsonian, but you are a few years too late for him to be able to help you.
We have quite a few woodworkers and model makers here, so one of them might be able to help you. Just check back over the next few days to see if one of them has responded. By the way, what airplane do you want modeled, and are you sure you want 1:1? A full size airplane takes a lot of time to build, even if it won't be flown.
If you are strongly motivated and dead serious please send me a PM. A WW2 fighter replica (maximum length will be 6 to 7 meters) !!!
it won't be me... I'm the least motivated person you'll ever meet...If you are strongly motivated and dead serious please send me a PM. A WW2 fighter replica (maximum length will be 6 to 7 meters) !!!
I don't think it would cost that much, after all, basically it would just be a hollow shell. Don't need fiberglass, just stretch light canvas or cloth over a frame then paint it (poor man's fiberglass). But anyway you look at it its going to cost more than just pocket change.
