Aircraft Display Model Collection Pt 1

Here begins the gallery of travel agency / company models that have been made and issued over the years. Many are period and getting harder to find nowadays.

There range from the desktop 1/100th scale models to the floor standing 1/24th scale models

The 1/100th or 1/72nd desk top display models, including some never flown or operated types
Though BCal seriously considered Concorde operations so I commissioned this model a few years back.
It gives a feel for what a BCal Concorde would have looked like.....very nice indeed.
Caledonian Boeing 707 - 1/72nd Scale

Caledonian, primarily a charter airline, had to keep costs down and everything from menus to models is in short supply. Indeed, this is the first Caledonian model to join the collection.

In May 1966 Caledonian placed a 2.58million order for their first Boeing 707. G-AVKA was handed over on 13th July 1967, but too late for that season of charters, so she was leased to Flying Tigers for eight months. She finally took to the air in Caledonian service in April 1968, flying as Flagship Bonnie Scotland.
