Hi all. I think I have found the appropriate section of the forum to post in to show you all some of our our products. My name is Roy and I work for Soda Can Models. We make scale models of Tanks, Cars, Helicopters and yes, aircraft of just about all eras out of soda and beer cans. Here are some samples of our work:

Renault FT-17 Tank from 7Up 10

NASCAR Racing Truck

We sell built models as well as over 35 PDF build it yourself e-file plans for those who would like to try to build our models. Our complete line of products can be found over at http://www.sodacanmodels.com. We specialize in retirement, PCS and many other special orders and we have done work for many folks serving in the Armed Forces. We have built many large scale displays including a Six foot long SR-71 Blackbird that now resides in a squadron ready room on Beale AFB, California. We have won 5 IPMS awards since 2008 competing in the Misc other than plastic category including a Best of Show Award for our Life-Size R2D2 project in 2013. We love building models that will become a unique conversation piece and that are a tangible link to someone's life or work. Just knowing that our models make people happy is what drives us to do the best work that we can.

For those Star Wars fans wanting to see the R2D2, here he is:

Yes we build them at kit scale as well so that they can fit on shelves or display cases with regular models. However, we try to meet our clients needs with regards to scale and we have also been commissioned to build some big models.

For example, here is a 1/18th scale F-15 Aggressor aircraft we were commissioned to build for an IPMS show. It was about 3.5 feet long and took 3rd place by the way:

Here is a 1/18th scale SR-71 Blackbird that we were commissioned to build a few years earlier. It was about 6 foot long and now resides at in a squadron ready room in Beale AFB, California:
