Squadron/Encore models have been bringing military aviation history to life since Squadron was founded by the late Mr. Jerry Campbell in 1968. Beginning as a hobby shop in Detroit, Michigan, it wasn't long before Squadron, “A Story With a Modeler's Heart,” connected with modelers and lovers of nostalgia across the USA. Today, their mission is still “to make the products and tools of this hobby available to everyone.”
Encore Models are multi-media kit renditions of different brand name model airplane kits, either long out of production and re-released or current models, updated in some form by Squadron under the Encore brand.
All Encore models come with special printed decals and resin accessories, often with multiple versions of decals to choose from. Squadron/Encore models take existing model kits and make them better, turning basic model airplanes into artistic masterpieces.
