Wingman Models has come up with a very unique idea for aircraft models either mounted on a base or as part of a diorama. They have produced a series of medallion s in resin approximately 4.5cm in size. The medallions contain sharp and crisp details embossed into the medallion to represent the displayed models nationality or theme. Due to the depth and sharpness of the embossed detail on each medallion the detail will be easy to paint and pick out each part of the individual detail with a brush.

The two medallions that I have for review are for the United States Air Force and the Israeli Defence Force. The flag for the United States Air Force clearly displays a section of the stars and stripes banner while the medallion for the Israeli Air Force flag clearly displays a section of the Star of David.

 

F-16 Fighting Falcon US Air Force WMB 003 and Israeli Air Force WMB 004 (pictured at top of page)

Embossed into the medallion is a fine rendition of the upper part of a Hawk with the words F-16 Fighting Falcon. Around the left hand side of the medallion a national flag is draped representing the nationality that the model represents.


 

US Air Force Strategic Air Command Shield WMB 001

 

 

This medallion represents the shield of the Strategic Air Command in the typical shape that the shield is commonly seen as. The shield contains the fist holding the lightning bolts and olive branch with the clouded sky background. The words Strategic Air Command are embossed in the ribbon across the bottom.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These resin badges from Wingman are superbly cast and look brilliant. They will enhance any aircraft diorama or display adding a theme to the display.

Thanks to Wingman Models for the sample
