Following a career designing real airplanes, aeronautical engineer Sompit Xia began fashioning model planes out of paper and then aluminum beverage cans as a hobby. The avocation quickly turned into a second career for him and his wife. Their unique handcrafted airplanes, helicopters, fighting jet and motor vehicles are designed on a computer and the recycled cans are cut, formed and assembled by hand.
Their airplanes are uniquely handcrafted with precision, beauty, and artistry and reflect some of today's modern "birds" of the sky. Computerized design, with the blue print transferred to recycled can.
