Steampunk Darth Vader Ornament. This is cast in crystacast plaster in a mould I made from an original model I made. Crystacast is a very hard giftware quality plaster. It was then sealed and hand painted with an aged copper effect and varnished. Is very heavy and weighs 1.5kg. Measures 14cms tall.
This one of a kind replica aircraft would be a perfect addition to any advanced collection of historical aircraft. Or would be ideal as a singular display in an airport terminal, museum, or private collection.
Horatio Barber was one of aviations true pioneers. His series of Pusher Monoplanes called Valkaries were well known in England in the pioneer era leading up to the Great War. He built several models with different engines, the most powerful was able to carry a pilot and two passengers. The Valkyrie was the first European aircraft to make a commercial flight carrying a box of General Electric Osram lamps from Shoreham to Hove for £100 pounds sterling, $2,500 USD today.
While almost 30 Valkyrie aircraft were built, sadly non servive.
This detailed replica, began in the 1980s, was built to fly but to date, has remained on the ground. Over 3,000 skilled man hours and over $15,000 in materials have been spent building the one and only replica of this historically significant areoplane.
