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.
