"The T-34C Mentor arrived that our Program Office ordered for a departing Team Member and I felt it necessary to compliment Squadron Toys on both the fast efficient service and the high level of detail and workmanship on this venerable and long-serving platform. It was definitely a better display model then other similar items we researched. ...look forward to checking your company for one source of quality mementos with personalized service. Again, thanks, and keep 'em flying!"

"e;Staff of Squadron Toys,I received my eagerly awaited F/A-18A+ yesterday and wow!!!!!!!!! I was expecting to get a detailed F/A-18A but it was so detailed you can see the one external difference that sets the A+ apart from the A model Hornet, the GPS/INS dome on the dorsal spine. This detailed Hornet is the best memento I will have of my squadron's deployment for Iraqi Freedom and what we accomplished.It is something I will pass along to my three month old son to remember what his daddy did. I am taking my model up to the squadron next week for all to see and hopefully order their own. It was worth the wait!!!Thank you!"e;

TERRY C., Major US Air Force
"e;Just a quick note to let you know the models arrived today. They look GREAT! The weapon config on the wings came out well, as did the nose art. And the patch on the base looks perfect (they must have some kind of computer for that – way too perfect to be entirely done by hand). Very pleased with the results! I’m sure now that a few of them are sitting in the squad I’ll get some more orders. Thanks again and I’ll be in touch!"e;

"e;I wanted to say thanks. I received myF-16order today. I was extremely impressed with the detail, quality and craftsmanship gone into making this unique airplane. I have to admit I was worried something wouldn't be right. However, everything on the jet was spot on down to the detail of the pilots call sign name and even the asterisks painted on the side of the canopy. Worth every penny paid!
Overall, outstanding product and I would definitely recommend your company to others. I may have to order a T-38 next!"e;
"e;...you guys are amazing. I got theHSL-51 (SH-60B)and it looks fantastic. When I gave it to my friend who had worked on that bird he was shocked at the detail of everything that was on there from all of the antennas to even having the handholds painted on by the engine. -Thanks,"e;

Every detail, control markings, squadron insignia, afterburner nozzle, squadron insignia on the model stand and name on the canopy are accurately done. The finishing paint job was far better than any model I have seen. I believe the size and scale of the model puts it over the top of any aerospace model and makes it a true piece of art.

James A. Gordon, Jr.,Captain, USNR(Ret.)
"e;This past weekend purchased your company's model of a SH-60B Seahawk at the NAS North Island Exchange. It was finished as the showbird of HSL-43 Battlecats. As a Princeton alumnus I'm prejudiced. My son had previously special ordered the helicopter he had flown while assigned to HSL-47 Saberhawks. Both models consistently reflect an extremely high degree of accuracy in both detail and color, and a professional level of craftsmanship and execution approaching museum quality. Comparable value can not be found in other "e;executive desktop models"e;, particularly not at your very competitive pricing. BRAVO ZULU."e;
Lieutenant K. Lock, US Navy,
The plane arrived right as scheduled and looks FANTASTIC. Thank you so much to you and your staff for their hard work in getting this to us on such short notice.Thanks,

I am writing to tell you how thoroughly pleased we are at the detail and fine craftsmanship your company performed in the making of our squadron F-5s. They are absolutelysuperb! The enthusiasm shown by both past and present fellow squadron members is unsurpassed. We searched other model makers and chose Squadron Toys. We now have positive proof that “you get what you pay for”. We could not be happier with the end-product. We look forward to ordering more in the near future.

"e;I have generated a lot of interest in this model to the point where several
competitors have approached me with their models of our aircraft. Man, some of
these guys/gals are just a little pushy with their sales pitches. I must say that
their models are, and I'll try to be nice here, inferior to the model you sent me."e;

...would be very interested in purchasing between 20 and 30 of these models. Currently they (JSSA) have been buying a much inferior harrier model for almost the same price as yours and not even close to the same craftsmanship.
EC-130 7 ACCS
"e;I received several days ago the EC-130 7ACCS model I ordered last September. It was worth the wait! Definitely a first-rate job. I'm sure with only seven aircraft in the USAF inventory that this was not your biggest seller, so those of us who flew it thank you for taking the item on. It looks great on the shelf."e;

"e;Just e-mailing you all that we received our A-10 models and the boys are very pleased with the quality of craftsmanship and the amount of detail. One guy who has several other models mentioned that it was the best one he had. Hopefully we will have another order of 10 models to send to you in the near future. Once the rest of the guys see how good the models are I think we will have a lot more orders. Thanks again."e;

"e;The MD500E (US Border Patrol) model helicopters that your company made were Outstanding in every detail. The quality of workmanship, the details, paint, everything on the model was Exceptional. The details; wires to the searchlights, antennas, FLIR unit, everything is just exceptional!
It was worth the wait. The price was excellent, for a model of the quality we received, one could expect the price to be much, much higher.
Again, I cannot say enough about the models except that your company does truly OUTSTANDING work!!
I will be ordering more models from Squadron Toys.

Hi guys, Lots of requests from the troops for additional models... (the folks here are all very impressed w/ the quality of your product).
Commander, US Navy, Ret.
Just got my S-3 VS-30 model and wanted to tell you guys what a great job you did!! I have seen similar models over the years in the $500 range, and yours is every bit as good, if not better. The stand with the laser art, (I assume), of the squadron insignia was also first rate. Thanks for a great memento!
AWCM Thomas Kaiser III, US Navy-Reserve, RET
I just received my model of the VP-93 Orion Aircraft and am thrilled to write and tell you that the representation is absolutely gorgeous.
While it has been a considerable period of time that the model has been on order, and we have been kept abreast of the problems encountered, you have done a superb job of recreating the bird. Thanking you for your incredible attention to detail.
C. Clifford, Lieutenant, US Navy
Received my model late last week - AWESOME!!! Positively worth the wait.
