Can anyone help?
I'm trying to find out some history of a "trophy" [I'm assuming it is a trophy - maybe it's just a household decoration?]. I received this as a Christmas present. I don't know much about it, but I'm guessing this item has some sort of interesting history... and there's bound to be someone on the interwebs that can shed some light on this.
I don't have much to go on - just the photos I took this evening. There are no markings of any type that would indicate a manufacturer or recipient/ owner. It is metallic, except the base which is wooden. The aircraft screws onto the pole [as shown], but detaches easily [ie: it was not glued]. It looks to be a few decades old and was purchased from a "hospice shop" [second-hand shop], so quite possibly from as part of an estate.
I can supply more photos if needed.
Any help/ info would be much appreciated! You can leave a comment on facebook/ blog or email me direct at history (at) flying.geek.nz
