"Fantastic Plastic" is a scale modeling site that celebrates the weird, the wonderful, the odd, the radical, the exotic and the just plane cool aircraft and spacecraft model kits produced in styrene (and resin) over the last 70-plus years.  From bizarre World War II-era "Luft '46" project planes to the latest science fiction concepts, here is a chronicle of Man's highest aspirations as expressed through his flying machines, both real and imagined.

The Fantastic Plastic "Virtual Museum of Flying Wonders" is divided into seven "galleries," each dedicated to a particular area of interest.  These are:

Whether your interest is "Luft '46," the American Space Program, X-planes, radical aircraft prototypes, "paper projects," Star Trek, Star Wars, hovercraft or UFOs, you are sure to find something here to ignite your passion -- and trigger wonderful memories.

And while you're here, please be sure to visit the Fantastic Plastic "Virtual Museum Store," where you'll find our exclusive line of unique aircraft and spacecraft model kits for sale.

Thanks for visiting.  Return often.   And...
