This neat period model is in excellent condition and displays well. One of the nicer Defiant models I have seen in brass. It has a lovely patina built up over the years, although there are traces of polish in the creases.
More accurate than many of the models of this era, the stand fit is loose rather than tight, and I would not be surprised if it was not the original stand....but it is certainly a genuine “of the period” stand.
The wingspan is a little over 6 inches (15.5 cms)
Another rare period model from 2 collections recently acquired from Europe, a Junkers Ju-86 in a mixture of brass/copper.
Not a large model, but beautifully and delicately done. One of the earlier Luftwaffe aircraft, the Junkers Ju 86 was a German monoplane bomber and civilian airliner designed in the early 1930s, and employed by various air forces on both sides during World War II, serving initially in an operational role in the Spanish Civil War in February 1937.
Where the aircraft is attached to it's original stand, it has a small leather cover, which is also used on the bottom of the stand base.
This beautiful and scarce model has a wingspan of around 3.9 inches (8 cms)
This neat period model is in excellent condition and displays well. A “one off” rather than a commercial model, clearly shows traces of hand fettling, and with no provision for a stand.
More accurate than many of the models of this era, and a real effort has been made with the shape of the Merlin engines and exhausts.
The wingspan is a little over 8 inches (21 cms)
This neat period model is in excellent condition and displays well. The airframe is brass and the stand is an Oak base with a brass upright.
The wingspan is around 8 inches (20 cms) and it weighs just under .5 Kgs.
