Video tour of the best airline display model collection
 
Last year I was fortunate enough to enjoy a private visit to the fabulous airline display model collection of Anthony Lawler, who started his collection in the early 50s.

There are so many jaw dropping models in his collection .. it is amazing to see these. And I am very grateful that he allowed the views of the collection to be shared with other collectors.

Here are 22 short videos that showcase this amazing collection, with Anthony Lawler narrating the history on most of the models .. it is fascinating stuff:
AircraftDisplayModels.com - The place to buy, sell, trade and collect aircraft display models

Anthony Lawler now specializes in searching for pre war display models as he finds these very special and most interesting.

If ever passing through SFO airport, be sure to visit the aviation museum at the SFO Terminal building, as it usually features a temporary display of models from Anthony's Lawler's collection.

It might take a few seconds for the page link provided above to load, as all 22 embed videos are provided on that page, so all the films could be presented in a single location.

Dear Henry,

Hope all is well.

All I can say is WOW!

It was very gracious of Anthony J. Lawler, to permit his collection to be videoed for all to see. When next you speak to him, kindly pass my personal thanks. :)

Thank you so much for personally taking the time to post the information and for all of those great videos.

Regards, Robert

Thank you Gents ... I suspected we'd all very much enjoy and appreciate this interesting look at Anthony's amazing and historic collection. It truly is a flash back to the golden age of the airline industry, that was captured in a way that is so far removed from the ways of today.

Would have loved to have seen details of his Eastern Air lines collection. Did you see any TENSHODO models in his collection?
