Handley Page H.P.57 Halifax - Aluminium Trench Art / POW model, ex-Julian Cope Archive model. 12 inch span- with certificate

A solid aluminium model of the Handley Page Halifax, complete with Display stand.

Originally from the Julian Cope Archive, the model has the original numbered certificate.

It was described as a Prisoner of War model, and on the base of the stand is a crude aluminium printed title which reads

“A.G.EDRAE 7626 STALAG LUFT 1”

Although I have no proof myself, the model is certainly of the period, and the certificate would seem to confirm the description.

Whatever the case, it is an interesting and imposing display piece.

The wingspan is just over 12 inches (342 cms) and the whole thing weighs .8 Kgs.

Potez 630/1 – WW2 Aluminium Trench Art model & piston head stand


A lovely old Trench Art Potez 630/1 cast in aluminium. Pleasingly accurate, the model is complete with a piston head base, and original old perspex/lucite prop discs.

The Potez 630 and its derivatives were a family of twin-engined aircraft developed for the French Air Force in the late 1930s. The design was a contemporary of the British Bristol Blenheim and the German Messerschmitt Bf 110. The Potez 630 was in use by several operators during the WW2. Following the Battle of France, both the Vichy French Air Force and the Free French Air Force used the type, and a number of captured aircraft were operated by several air wings of the Axis powers. After the end of the conflict in 1945, a handful of aircraft were used for training purposes for some time.

The model has been left exactly as found, it would undoubtedly polish up well, and the prop discs could also be carefully cleaned...it is my usual practice to leave all original patina and to leave the “Clean or Not to Clean” decision up to the new owner !

No damage to airframe, prop discs complete.......see photos !

This elderly model displays well, has a wingspan of around 10 inches ( 26cms) and weighs .8 Kg.
