Stereoscope (pg3 Misc) B

For most of the war Spitfire and Mosquito fighter aircraft were fitted with cameras. Spitfires were lightened by removing their guns, their skins were polished for extra speed and larger fuel tanks gave them a range of more than 1,500 miles at 35,000 feet at a top speed of nearly 400 mph. The cameras were fixed behind the pilot fitted with up to 36" (910mm) lenses. The cameras were slightly angled so that they photographed a strip about three miles across on a nine inch wide film. By overlapping the photographs, stereo pairs were produced which, when viewed with a stereoscope, gave a three dimensional impression. Aerial photography was not only useful for assessing troop movements and measuring the effectiveness of bomb damage, it was also vital in the discovery of secret weapons such as the V1 flying bomb and V2 rockets. Enemy intentions and capabilities cold be discovered by aerial photography. For example routine cover of U-boat shipyards enabled interpreters to predict submarine production for up to six months ahead. This is in mint boxed condition. It contains an adapter so that binoculars can be used which are also supplied.

De Havilland Mosquito Drinking Water Tank (pg 3 Misc)

 Mosquito's were widely used by the RAF Pathfinder Force, marking targets for the main night-time strategic bombing force, as well as flying "nuisance raids" in which Mosquito's often dropped 4,000 lb "Cookies". Despite an initially high loss rate, the Mosquito ended the war with the lowest losses of any aircraft in RAF Bomber Command service. Post war, the RAF found that when finally applied to bombing, in terms of useful damage done, the Mosquito had proved 4.95 times cheaper than the Lancaster

Yorktown Class Aircraft Carrier (pg3 Misc)

This Model is based on a Yorktown Class Aircraft carrier from the Pacific War.

It is scratch built from balsa wood and took two years to complete. At 1/72 scale it is over 8Ft long by 3Ft wide. It has over 30 aircraft which are the only pieces which are not scratch built. Every detail from the crew down to the smallest AA battery has been faithfully reproduced. The ship is seen at port being re supplied.

The detail is superb and it is contained in its own protective case. This model will need to be collected.

It can be viewed by serious potential purchasers.

The Pacific War was the largest naval conflict in history. Across the huge expanses of the Pacific, the two most powerful navies in the world found themselves locked in a death struggle. The war was fought in every possible climate, from Arctic conditions in the Aleutians, to the appalling heat and swelter of the South Pacific. Every conceivable type of naval activity was represented: carrier aviation battles, surface engagements, bitterly fought night-fights, the largest amphibious landings of the entire war, and the stealthy, brutal battles waged by and against submarines.

Five Marines and a Navy hospital Corpsman raise the flag on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima, using a piece of Japanese pipe as a mast, February 23, 1945. Three of the flag raisers were later killed as the fighting raged on. By March 16, when Iwo Jima was declared secured, 6,821 Americans and 21,000 Japanese (the entire force) had died. The flag raising photo and subsequent statue came to symbolize being a Marine.

40mm guns of the USS HORNET fire at Japanese suicide dive bombers, the Kamikazes, as the carrier's own planes were raiding Tokyo, February 16, 1945. By the end of the war, Japan will have sent an estimated 2,257 Kamikazes. "The only weapon I feared in the war," Admiral Halsey
