I recently obtained this large Agamemnon from a friend, and was wondering if any of you can identify if it was made from a kit? To me it looks a little like the Caldercraft kit but with full sails. Most of the parts are wood. The plastic parts include the cannons, the red enclosures around them, and the ornamentation above the windows in the back. I would like to replace the cannons if possible with some that are higher quality than the shiny plastic ones, perhaps made of brass or black metal. Are there any model ship parts suppliers you can recommend? That’s a lot of cannons to replace ! Thank you for any help you can give me. Steve
This period of time was pivotable in the history of aviation in the last century.It has always been of great interest to me, the era from the end of WW1 to the beginnings of air regulations in 1929, a time when anything was possible before the government stepped in. I just noticed that a few of the following pics are out of focus, forgot to use my glasses when reviewing them. This is my diorama that is now on permanent display in the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa Canada.It was valued by Shep Paine the best known of the modern day diorama makers at twenty-five thousand dollars(US).
