1:200 Scale Models

Introduction to 1:200 scale Pro-built metal model Collection 

1:200 scale is fast becoming the fashionable collecting scale for the 21 st Century. You only have to look on line to see the mass produced models of manufacturers such as Herpa, Gemini and Hogan to see the growing range of aircraft (Mostly civilian) available. I am always surprised to see the high prices of these mass produced models, usually made in the Far east.

Just as the 1930's Skybirds, Frog Penguin and Recognition Models made 1:72 a standard scale for model aircraft, so 1:200 had it's roots in the late 1930's and WW2.

The German Manufacturer Wiking chose 1:200 scale for its Aircraft Recognition Models for the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe...the theory was that a model of this size held at arms length would approximate to the size of the real thing in engagement.

After WW2, Wiking again produced some of these models which became popular in the 1950's. When the 60's came along, enterprising souls began to recast, paint and finish these plain unpainted models.....and some experienced modellers began to make, mould and cast their own.

One of the pioneers in later years was Dennis Knight and Helmet Models.

We have managed to acquire some 250 of these original highly detailed models....NON are mass produced...all are “one-offs”

Some will become available over the coming months.......WATCH THIS SPACE !

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.V – 1:200 scale Pro-built Dennis Knight metal model – signed and dated1989



SOLD

A beautifully made & finished metal model of the Spitfire Mk.V.

The Mk V was produced in greater numbers than any other single mark of Spitfire. It was the main version of the fighter during 1941, replacing the Mk I and II in service in time to take part in the first British counter attacks over France. During the summer of 1941 it held an advantage over the Bf 109, but in September 1941 the Fw 190 made its operation debut, and the Mk V found itself outclassed. Despite this, it remained the main RAF fighter until the summer of 1942, and the low level LF.Mk V remained in use into 1944.

Pro-built by the one and only Dennis Knight back in November 1988 (Model is signed and dated)
