Default 1/200 Heinkel He70

Another model from a seller breaking a large collection of specialist 1/200.
Sweet little Heinkel He70

Sold as Helmet? but makers mark under wing is a "Windsock"

This from TOTS newsletter No. 3, January 2008:

“The Aerodrome” was the title adopted by David Austin for a series of 1/200th models, predominantly of civilian types, as an offshoot of his well-known Dinky Toys trading business. The masters for this series were, again, the handiwork of Tommy Atkins. It is thought that only a relatively small number of finished models appeared on the market, built by various hands for the Aerodrome. A small, engraved windsock under the wing identifies these models. MetalModels later purchased most of the masters and subsequent reissues do not have this feature.

Aviaction-

Where are you seeing the collection sale?

Thx. Danny

Thanks for clearing that one. I have commented before that it appears three large collections have been broken up. one coming through at the Enthusiat fairs from Geoff Noble having bought a very large collection last year. Also at least two collections being broken up on ebay. I have picked up occasional pieces as the seller of this model charges sensible money. this was £12 on BIN plus a bit for postage. I tried to get in at the start of his listings, a few months back, with the idea of trying to obtain the whole collection to keep in intact, but fell through.



I just feel collection like this should't be split for short term gain.

Nice addition. This looks like an original one.

Derek Barrett/Metal Models re-did this one under his Golden Age of Aviation range.

A lot of the recent 1/200 models are from his collection.

Derek was a great modeler and is very much missed.

I was about to say the same.

I believe I received the very very last model Derek ever made, posted out a few days before he passed and received almost concurrently with the sad news, it was one of his F89s, lovely model!

Derek was a great model maker, he passed away while visiting Normandy in France in July 2017.

The HP 42 I recently built was among his castings, I also have a very interesting and unfinished Junkers G 38, Derek did not have enough time to finish it.

It is painted, the landing gear and the tail surfaces need to be assembled, I have all the decals.
That will be a great model.

I understand that Chris has all the toolings of Derek's models, maybe one day, depending on the demand from collectors, some of them will be again available in kit form.

This Heinkel He 70 is superb.

Jean Pierre.

Derek was indeed a great model maker, one of the best, and a real gentleman. I think I have everything he did. Below, DB at AF Museum in Dayton.

JP- I recommend that you reinforce the G.38 uc- the soft metal barely holds the considerable weight of the casting.

Thank you Danny, I have the same concern with the landing gear of the HP 42, the model is really heavy.
