Museum Model or Model Museum?

One of our volunteers likes to build model aircraft, so we've had a lot of discussion about building models of the museum aircraft. The models could be used as a miniature display of the museum, to assist with museum layout, to evaluate paint schemes or just for fun!

This model was built by an associate several years ago, after riding in L29, "bord DN". It was carefully painted and detailed to match the real thing!

The paint and detail compare favorably with the real thing!

Painting a model is a lot of work, but painting a full size airplane is even more work and expense.

The model above started as a kit like the one below.
