WANTED: VINTAGE AIRLINE DISPLAY MODELS / SPECIALLY VERKUYL METAL MODELS: In the mid 90s airline display model collector Henry Tenby paid a number of visits to Brian Austria-Tompkins at his Executive Display Models showroom at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel at Heathrow airport. This 4 minute video gives a detailed view of the goodies in the shop circa 1994. The two RAF Blackburn Beverley models are superb. As are the 1/72 scale models of the Canadian Pacific DC-6, PIA Connie, TAR CL-44, and Monarch Britannia. And I really love the 1/100th scale Cathay Pacific CV880 hanging on the wall. It is an accurate and lovely period model. I have no idea who made that model but would certainly like to know. At the end of the clip, the late Brian Austria-Tomkins appears at his desk prepping a 1/72 scale British Midland Boeing 707 for a customer. All great memories, which I am glad I had the foresight to film my visit. Fabulous models to marvel at. What an amazing business Brian ran, as it serviced demanding collectors from all over the world, with a quality that is pretty much un-matched to this very day. It is a shame Brian is no longer with us, and this video is dedicated to him.

http://henrytenby.com/DVDs/vacuumdvd.html In this 2 hour instructional DVD, Clinton H. Groves explains in great detail how to successfully build vacuum formed aircraft models. Clint Groves was the founder and President of ATP, which specialized in the sale of airliner kits and decals. Clint produced this video in the mid 1980s to explain to his customers how to build vacuum formed models. The orignal VHS video have not been available for many years and to this day, no other instructional DVD or video has addressed this specialized aircraft model building topic. Clint very clearly explains in detail how vacuum formed models are produced from molds, what tools and supplies are required, how to remove the parts from their vacuum formed sheets, how to prep and sand the parts, how to glue the parts together, and how to sand and putty the vacuum formed model to prepare it for final painting and decal application. This DVD is a must have DVD for any serious modeller of airline models as well as casual model builders that would like to start building vacuum formed models. The DVD finishes with a tour of Clint's completed models display case.

For nearly half a century, from the time of the first successful flight of the Wright brothers in 1903, the predominant form of aircraft propulsion had been propellers driven by piston engines. Jet engines were initially conceived in the early twentieth century, but were not put into practical use in aircraft until World War II and were not installed on commercial airliners until the late 1940s. These first applications were turboprops or propellers attached through a gearbox to the turbine of a jet engine. In 1952, BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) introduced the de Havilland Aircraft Company's Comet, the first commercial pure-turbojet, and the fastest airliner in the world at the time. Six years later, an improved Comet and other jetliners from Boeing, Sud Aviation, and Douglas Aircraft emerged. Not only were these jets capable of high velocities, but they also enabled the airlines to substantially reduce their seat-mile costs, and thus lower ticket prices and open up air travel to a large percentage of the public. The jet age of commercial aviation had effectively arrived. When these new airliners were introduced they were celebrated as one of the greatest advances in commercial aviation, and were promoted with great enthusiasm during the 1950s and 1960s. Producing scale models of these jetliners was an effective means for airlines to promote the new aircraft, and for manufacturers, an important part of the design, production, and marketing process. Crafted by in-house model shops or through independent model makers, they represented the new aircraft designs in miniature for convenient three-dimensional viewing and analysis. Accurately painted livery schemes on the models helped the airlines to imagine the new, swift jets operating within their fleets, and carriers distributed the models to their sales offices and travel agents for proud display. The models exhibited here represent the first three decades of the jet age of commercial aviation, from the early 1950s until the introduction of supersonic transports and wide-body, jumbo-jets in the late 1970s. All models are from the collection of Anthony J. Lawler, an aviation industry professional and avid airliner model collector since first seeing the de Havilland Comet fly over his boyhood home in Rhodesia 1952. Mr. Lawler has spent decades assembling his collection of scale airliner display models, most of which were acquired while working as a senior sales representative for Airbus North America during the 1980s and 1990s. His collection spans almost a century of commercial aviation design innovation. Jet Age Models is on view in the Aviation Museum and Library through October 2014.

The Lockheed Constellation, affectionately known as the Connie was a four-engine propeller-driven airliner built by Lockheed between 1943 and 1958 at its Burbank, California facility. A total of 856 aircraft were produced in four models, all distinguished by a distinctive triple-tail design and graceful, dolphin-shaped fuselage. This video clip was filmed by German TV and documents the MATS Connie in the USA several years ago. Videographer not known. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Constellation

An airplane movie with Jimmy Stewart from 1951. A full scale "Reindeer" was actually created for the film using a Handley Page Halifax bomber as a base. Note deer and antlers on Glynis John's stewardess cap. Halifax C MKVIII (PP296) was bought by Westminster Airways on 27/4/1949 and completed 116 tanker sorties on the Berlin airlift. It returned to its home base of Blackbushe on 26/4/1950. It was sold on for film work and used as the fictitious Reindeer aircraft (G-AFOH) and then scrapped. She was not airworthy and the flying scenes in the movie were donw with models and stop motion effects. Sadly, the "Reindeer" was scrapped shortly after filming completed.
