Model of Hudson mounted on Relief map of Australia
the Lockheed Hudson was an American-built light bomber and coastal reconnaissance aircraft originally supplied to the Royal Air Force shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War and primarily operated by the RAF thereafter. The Hudson also fought in the Far East serving with both the RAF, RNZAF and the RAAF. Our model is cast in brass although the colour of the metal gives a very bronzy look. The stand is fixed to an ashtray map featuring the outline of Australia. The model does not carry any makers marks and we are unable to decide if this is a fine example of trench art or a commercially made model. We have certainly never had one to this design before. It weighs in at 1.3 kilos without packing so please check with us for a delivered price before ordering, particularly for those outside the UK. Model wingspan is 7 1/4” (18.5 cm). The ‘Australia ‘ base is 8.5” x 6” (21 cm x 16 cm).
