Copper Vickers Wellington WW2 Bomber Wingspan 36 cm

This is a very collectible large model of a Copper Vickers Wellington WW2 Bomber Wingspan 36 cm

In pretty good condition, with surface scratches, scuffs and pitting in the metal. It's made from solid copper and very heavy (almost 2Kg unpacked)!

Approximate size:
Wing Span: 36 cm
Height: 4 cm 
Length: 25.5 cm (10")

This model captures the silhouette of the aircraft and is very similar to the RAF recognition model aircraft produced, usually in wood, during WW2 as a teaching aid for allied troops. This version comes without a stand but has a screw holder in the base to add a stand. It has been lightly polished.

These models were often made from recycled aircraft metal during and post WW2, and are often referred to as 'trench art.'

A wonderful display item for the office desk, study and hobby room!

According to Wikipedia: "The Wellington was made from the mid-1930s at Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey, led by Vickers-Armstrongs' chief designer Rex Pierson; a key feature of the aircraft is its geodetic airframe fuselage structure, principally designed by Barnes Wallis."
