Above the Clouds

Our projects - Currently in progress

Most of our projects are complete recreations or accurate historical reproductions of fallen flag carriers at the craftsman level, but others are modifications to factory runs produced by Iconic Replicas.  The Flagstop Tech Team is extremely fussy and very picky, so when a factory run comes out, we will not "STUFF AND SHIP" a bus if we feel it has errors or deficiencies.  We make the necessary modifications before shipping them out to you.  Unfortunately, this can result in delays - we appreciate your patience. At this time, we are still SEVERELY backed up.

 

Flagstop is always adding new projects - here is an overview of what' we are currently juggling in the queue:
