Vintage Aluminium or Chrome Plated Aircraft


Gloster Meteor - Period Aluminium desk top model & brass stand

The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' only jet aircraft to achieve combat operations during the Second World War. The Meteor's development was heavily reliant on its ground-breaking turbojet engines, pioneered by Sir Frank Whittle.

In aluminium and complete with it's original display stand, this model captures well the lines of the original aircraft, and has a wingspan of around 7 inches (17.5 cms)......Obviously a “non commercial” model, it is unusual to have a model using both aluminium and brass....but it works well and displays beautifully.

Gloster Meteor F.3 – Cast aluminium Model and stand

The Gloster Meteor was the first British operational jet fighter and the only Allied jet aircraft to reach operational status during World War II.

The Meteor F .3 was the first version of the Meteor to be produced in large numbers, and the first truly satisfactory version of the aircraft. The first production version, the F.1 lacked engine power, and was at best equal in performance to the best piston engined aircraft, but the majority of Meteor F Mk.IIIs were powered by a pair of Rolls-Royce Derwent I engines, each providing 2,000lb of thrust, making the Meteor F.3 clearly superior to the contemporary Spitfires and Mustangs, at least in speed.

The model is cast aluminium, with a wingspan of 7 inches (18cms)

North American B-25 Mitchell – Cast Aluminium Model Aircraft by DP Carter

This superb Handmade Aluminium B-25 Mitchell was made some years ago in England by D.P.Carter, this is one of the smaller Carter models

The Models made by Carter have become a watchword for neatness and accuracy, although little is know for sure about the creator. His models have become quite scarce and harder to find with the passage of time...the flying control surfaces, cockpit frames etc all carefully etched. The Airframe is perfect, the stand is original.

The wingspan is around 5.5 inches (14cms)

Exactly when he started producing these models is unknown, but some sources say he initially made them during RAF service, the original models being all made from Aircraft Grade aluminium........after this, he continued to make them in a small forge on Halfpenny Lane in Pontefract, West Yorkshire in the 1980's to the early 1990's.

They were only produced in small numbers to sell at various Air Shows including Farnborough. All the models were skilfully hand carved by Carter and then cast in alloy, the process, quality and small numbers produced making them very rare. He also made a small range of animals, which are equally collectable and turn up occasionally at Antique sales.

Petlyakov Pe-2 – VERY Rare Vintage WW2 Aluminium Model & Display Stand

A very rare and obviously hand/trench art/workshop model in aluminium of the Petlyakov Pe -(Russian: Петляков Пе-2)

The Petlyakov Pe-2 was a Soviet light bomber used during World War II. It was regarded as one of the best ground attack aircraft of the war and it was also successful in the roles of heavy fighter, reconnaissance and night fighter.


It's the first period Pe-2 I have found as a metal/hand made item, and it originated from a collection I found in Serbia.

Beautifully accurate in outline, the aircraft has not been polished, and comes complete with a wooden Oak / Aluminium Display stand.

This Pe-2 has a wingspan of a little over 7.5 inches ( 19 cms)
