Handcrafted Mahogany Model of The Vulcan Bomber on a Chrome Desk stand. 20789. - 20789
(The Avro Vulcan (later Hawker Siddeley Vulcan from July 1963) is a jet-powered, tailless, delta-wing, high-altitude, strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the most technically advanced, hence the riskiest option. Several reduced-scale aircraft, designated Avro 707s, were produced to test and refine the delta-wing design principles). This handmade model is 19 cm high, 32 cm long and 31 ½ cm in width. It has been intricately made from mahogany and then polished and sealed. It stands on a lovely machined metal base which has been chromed, which sets off the colour of the wood really well. The stand is connected to the base of the aircraft by two bolts and the base of the stand is covered in black velvet to stop surface scratches. This piece would look good on a desk in a study, in a man cave or on a display shelf. The price for this nod to a historical marvel includes UK delivery. 20789. (Shelf facing office)

**RARE**WW2 1943 RAF Royal Air Force Bakelite War Savings Campaign Plaque By De La Rue Plastics. Sn 19626 - 19626
During WW2 once local councils had reached certain savings targets to support the war effort these plaques were presented and displayed in the Town Hall or similar places. Army plaques were also presented but the R.A.F. Wings For Victory examples are much rarer to find as the savings targets took much longer to achieve. (A WW2 army war savings plaque is available separately on this website Sn 4785). This WW2 dated RAF example is made of ivory hue Bakelite. It measures 23” x 14” x ½” . It has a large panel depicting a naked warrior with sword in hand about to slay a triple headed serpent. The R.A.F. motto 'Per Ardua Ad Astra' is along the top edge and at the bottom text reads ' War Savings Campaign 1943 - Presented By The Air Ministry In Recognition Of Successful Achievement In Wings For Victory Week'. Beneath that are some RAF pilot's wings. The rear of the plaque has cast manufacturer detail in small lettering De La Rue Plastics. The bottom edge of one corner has an old small stable chip only visible on close inspection. The rear of the plaque is mounted with cord for wall hanging. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 19626

1950’s RAF-issue Type –G sunglasses and Case. 19640. - 19640
Introduced in the 1950’s, these are very similar to the standard WWII issue Mk.VIII glasses. They are in a blue anodised aluminium case marked with the store reference; 22G/1399 Type G Large. It also carries the War Department's crow's foot symbol. Inside the case is a blue velvet insert, and the name ‘N.A.T.S. T.R.Gregory 23 Cadet’ is on a tag inside of the lid. The glasses themselves have a gold-coloured frame with flat side-arms (to facilitate wearing a gas mask?) and the ear-pieces are of a very flexible, sprung design that hooks all the way around the ear, so they are tightly-retained during flight. The lenses are glass and have no scratches or defects that I can see, and overall, they are in great condition, considering their age. The case, as you would expect, has some scratches and the edge of the lining is coming loose, but is also in good condition. A great piece of history for the enthusiast’s collection. The price includes UK delivery. 19640. (Handcuffs)
