Boulton Paul P.111 – VT935 – Experimental tailess Delta Fighter c.1950. Large 1/25th scale Ex-C.A.M Wooden model

The Boulton Paul P.111  is a British experimental aircraft of the 1950s designed to explore the characteristics of tailless delta wings.

The P.111 was built for the  Air Ministry  to specification E.27/46  by Boulton – Paul Aircraft Ltd. to investigate the possibilities of the delta wing platform in such future projects as the Avro Vulcan, Fairey Delta 2 etc.


The P.111 made its first flight on 10 October 1950 from Boscombe Down, , Later test flying was carried out by test pilot Alex “Ben” Gunn, who described the aeroplane as "touchy" and "like flying a razor's edge" It continued experimental Flying until 1958, when it was retired to Cranfield College of Aeronautics. I saw the aircraft both at Farnborough Displays and at Cranfield.


A solid wooden model, not new, originally supplied by Collectors Aircraft Models so probably a Bravo Delta model. About 20 years old, with a little in grained dust in places but complete and good apart from some surface damage to a small area at the starboard wing tip trailing edge. Easily repaired if required, although it does not detract from the general overall appearance.

Complete with original Display Stand (marked with details of the aircraft) wingspan is a little over 13 inches (33cms)

It displays impressively. It's one of the mahogany models produced in the Philippines, of which there is currently one are on eBay, at £184.50 + £60 shipping....so this one represents good value !!!!

Hawker Siddeley HS.801 Nimrod MR.Mk.1 c.1965-79 - Rare Period Solid Model, by AGM -12 inch wingspan

Designed in response to a requirement issued by the RAF to replace its fleet of ageing Shackletons, the H.S.801 Nimrod MR.1 / MR.2 's were primarily fixed-wing aerial platforms for anti-submarine (ASW) Maritime Reconnaissance (MR) and anti-suface warfare.

The Nimrod design was based on that of the Comet 4 civil airliner which had reached the end of its commercial life (the first two prototype Nimrods, XV148 and XV147 were built from two final unfinished Comet 4C airframes

After the first flight in May 1967, the RAF ordered a total of 46 Nimrod MR1s. The first example (XV230) entered service in October 1969

Starting in 1975, 35 aircraft were upgraded to MR2 standard, being re-delivered from August 1979. The upgrade included extensive modernisation of the aircraft's electronic suite. Changes included the replacement of the obsolete ASV Mk 21 radar used by the Shackleton and Nimrod MR1 with the new EMI Searchwater radar.


This beautifully period contractor model is now quite rare, and represents an early MR.1.

Paintwork is a little aged, with one or two minor chips, and the Starboard tail surface seems to have been repaired at some time.

The AGM contractors label is still quite visible on the underside of the fuselage, and as usual, I have left the model 100% as found.

This scarce model has a wingspan of 12 inches (30cms) which gives it the rather unusual scale of 1:110 (I think !)
