About the Authentic Models collection

Founder Haring Piebenga loved antique auctions and the wonderful heritage pieces that he would discover there. On one occasion he purchased a British explorer's pocket compass and his imagination was fired by the miniature work of art that he was holding in his hands. He dreamt of the places he could discover and explore using the compass. This precious piece and other beautiful artefacts then persuaded him to recreate originals in wonderful detail for others to enjoy.

For more than 50 years, Authentic Models has been enchanting enthusiastic and loyal collectors around the globe. Ideal for those with a passion for history and the unknown, the gorgeous handmade models perfectly replicate stunning originals. Each piece is crafted with exceptional care from the finest materials and is distinguished by amazing attention to detail.

You cannot fail to be impressed by the striking ships, aircraft and hot air balloons in this unique collection which we are proud to showcase here at Sculpture Gallery. Celebrating landmarks in transportation and exploration, the striking replicas are finished to perfection and always draw the eye.

The available models include the legendary liner Titanic and the Dakota DC3, workhorse of the skies from the 1930s to the 1950s. You will also discover the Aquarama, Ford Trimotor and the Jules Verne Balloon. There is something for everyone in this captivating collection that features wonderful decorative pieces for the home and stunning models which would grace any office.
