A deep-seated love of the formative years of aviation is an affliction that many of us struggle with, in fact if it wasn’t for the prohibitive cost of entry of aviation many of us would have a Tiger Moth, a Sopwith Camel or a Spitfire out in the garage parked next to the Porsche 911 RSR.
This model is a Ford Tri-Motor by Authentic Models, it’s handmade and measures 26 inches long by 41 inches wide. It has an estimated value of $600 to $800 USD as is due to be auctioned by Bonhams on the 15th of August 2014 at the Quail Lodge.
