16/12/2011 Classic Life Selected: F-100 Super Sabre model
Unlike many a plastic kit of Christmases past, this wooden model North American F-100 Super Sabre comes ready built and is mounted on a sturdy aluminium stand – all the better for a mock flypast of the roast turkey with authentic “shwooaaaarh!” sound effects.
Alternatively, it could be carefully re-wrapped and proudly borne into the office on 4 January as the perfect desk ornament.
The 29cm x 23cm x 29cm model is available from the shop of wonders, specialising in all things collectable and esoteric, that is Bentleys, 204 Walton Street, Chelsea SW3.
The company is also celebrating its second year at another location, inside tailors Gieves and Hawkes, No.1 Savile Row, London W1.
