Custom-Made Models

Many of the airplanes of interest to the YV400 collection are those of little-known Venezuelan airlines of which models are not normally released. Because of it, there are a number of custom-made models in the collection. Many of the decals used to customize those models are home-made, since some Venezuelan carriers are so obscure that even professional decal designs are difficult to find. 

In this section of the site are included all of the custom-made models by the author of YV400. As you can see in the pictures, some of them have turned out to be much nicer than others, but even the not so nice ones are part of the process of ever improving the skills required to produce these unique pieces. 

Enjoy the pictures,
