XTI Aircraft

model repair

XTI Aircraft, a pioneering company in the field of vertical take-off and landing aircraft, turned to Archetype3D to address a pressing need for the repair and enhancement of their remarkable trade show and demonstration model. This project called for a unique set of skills possessed only by experienced model makers like us.

The first step involved carefully removing the aircraft from its temporary display at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. Our team then transported it back to our shop in Denver, where we embarked on the comprehensive restoration process. The project encompassed multiple body repairs to address any damage, electrical rewiring to ensure optimal functionality, extensive reworking of the base, and a meticulous full paint job. The sheer size of the model, measuring over 12 inches, presented an additional challenge, but one that our skilled team was well-equipped to handle. To ensure safe transportation, we also designed and fabricated a custom travel crate to protect the model during its global demonstrations.

The end result was a model that looked almost new, ready to be shipped and showcased to audiences around the world. XTI Aircraft could confidently present their groundbreaking vertical take-off and landing prototype with a fully restored and visually striking model.
