Great display Yves!

You may have spotted I have a liking for early jets - especially the German ones - The Horten looks futuristic even now. It also shows a recurring theme that 144 does so well - groups and collections.

Right from our early days with Terry's British helicopter and Schneider trophy collection, David's fire Bombers and the history of various manufacturers, De Havilland, Blackburn, Scruggs. More recently the Spitfire and Dassault groupings - it's definitely what we are good at!

Nice work Yves, beautifully finished. As Mike suggests our scale is perfect for displaying collections, histories and groupings, it couldn't be done in the larger scales. When I put some resins in my collections I notice the weight that I have to transport increases, with your metal models the weight must be very noticeable in your collections. It is very nice to see a different medium.
