MODELS IN SILVER

There is considerable grace and artistic merit about the lines of a well-designed aeroplane, and we can imagine no more charming way of preserving their characteristics for the information of future generations than that present-day owners should have silver replicas in miniature of the machines they fly. Such work to be carried out properly needs the art of the expert silversmith, and it is a matter of considerable interest to learn that Messrs. Mappin and Webb are specialising in this as a branch of their factory at 158-162, Oxford Street. Mappin and Webb's workmanship holds a world reputation for excellence in any case, while the reputation of the firm is such as to be a guarantee that the great essential of accuracy in the reproduction of the design should be all that the most critical constructor could desire. Already Messrs. Mappin and Webb have secured several orders, and we have not the least doubt that they will obtain quite an influx of them when the idea becomes more generally known. Most pilots naturally have a regard for their aeroplane that is a little deeper and more enduring than that ordinarily associated with the possession of inanimate objects, and we can well believe that all, at any rate, who have achieved anything of consequence in the way of a flight, would like to possess some simple memento of the occasion such as the Mappin and Webb scale model so admirably affords. These models, needless to say, can be made in any size. The larger, the greater amount of detail can be reproduced, of course ; but even in the smallest models accuracy of essential features and a likeness of the original machine is equally assured.
