Whale Sky Hook

Whale Sky Hook
Ref: TM048 Nearly hunted to extinction, these huge ocean mammals are slowly recuperating from having been chased for centuries for their oil and meat. Whales still trek thousands of miles across the oceans between feeding grounds and areas where they mate and give birth. Today only a few remote native fishing villages are allowed to catch a few migrating whales. One of these is located on the island of Flores, Indonesia, another in Alaska. Both fishing tribes hunt with handheld harpoons thrown from indigenous craft.

WWII Compass

WWII Compass
Ref: CO0014 The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build. Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth’s magnetic North. 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans. Sailors now devised a compass course, while still using their age-old knowledge of steering by fixed stars, ocean currents and prevailing winds to establish position.

Ref: AR012 Crafted in the manner of models made by members of a French Guild. Prevalent from the Middle Ages it reached its zenith during the 17th through the 19th centuries. In the compagnonnage apprentices first developed technical skills and studied geometrical drawing and design. They then were sent on a “Tour de France’, working with masters throughout the country. Ultimately each produced a ‘guild masterpiece’ or maîtrise demonstrating mastery of joinery, cabinetmaking, carpentry, and design concepts and techniques.

Part of growing up is switching our fascination to miniatures of cars, buildings, ships and planes. It’s not just architects interested in the the science of construction. Michelangelo and Da Vinci created scale models of the dome buildings they designed for their royal and papal patrons. And a half dome allows one to view the intricacies and beauty of a model from both the inside and outside. Beautifully finished in glowing French honey. A pièce de résistance.

Bantam Midget

Bantam Midget
Ref: PC011 The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Miniature racecars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spindizzies competed at once, tethered by cables to a central pole. Powered by model airplane engines, spindizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys: they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints our Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you’ll be ready to join the competition.

Indianapolis

Indianapolis
Ref: PC010 Technically skilled enthusiasts of the 1930s loved to race the legendary B.B. Korn cars around the club tracks. Called tether cars or spindizzies, they reached incredible speeds, and inspired thousands to improve and invent. The founder of the B.B. Korn Manufacturing Company, Barney Korn, produced several tether car models that now, as vintage antiques, achieve astounding sums at auction. For the children of his clients Mr. Korn designed and built “The Indianapolis,” a non-powered pre-war giveaway. It was meant to enthuse children and get them to participate in motoring activities. Our Indy ‘toy’ car pays homage to Korn’s legacy with detailed dash, rubber tires, and hand-polished aluminum body.
