Resin Reproductions of Rare WWII ID Models NOTE: prices are given as “Finished/Raw castings”. Finished models have wire masts similar to WW II ID models and have been cleaned up, primed, sanded, painted gray and are mounted on a blue plastic base as per the photo. “Raw Castings” are just that—A complete set of castings, with minimal cleanup, no wire masts, and no base. Prices vary because in some cases it takes three pourings to make a full set of parts.
