1937 Fillon Wakefield





I have found a suitable home for Richard Thompson's Fillon 1937 Wakefield model at the Air Museum in Angers, France.
https://www.musee-aviation-angers.fr/collection
They are quite enthusiastic at the prospect of diplaying the model. (The original Fillon model is at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace is Le Bourget near Paris)
I'll bring it Thursday, complete with replacement bamboo landing gear and wheels which were missing.
Looking forward to seeing you.

by Emmanuel Fillon.
