Hello all,

please move this post if in the wrong place. I'm a newbie so not 100% sure on how this all works!

I was doing a house clearance yesterday when in an elderly women's attic, we found this KLM PH-LKJ Model Airplane with the stand.

I have done a small amount of research and have found a similar model on the London Science Museum website! We think its old, 1950s early 1960s. Please pay attention to the sticker on the bottom of the plane: Walker's Westway Models Limited.

We think that this is cast, aircraft aluminium as its heavy and has no visible welding.

I was wondering on whether anyone knew any more about it and what its potential worth is?

Thanks!

Pictures are in this Google Drive folder as too big for site:

Looks like an airline display model, can't tell what size but the bigger it is relates to its value, May be of interest to a museum?

A Lockheed Constellation display model. Probably quite a few produced for publicity and display purposes. KLM did operate a fleet of them.

At one time it probably adorned a check in counter. It will have value, but I wouldn't have a clue........

Another pic here...

Get in touch with the Aviodrome museum in the Netherlands (info@aviodrome.nl) and see if they are interested or have information. They have a full size Constellation on display.....
