BUYER BEWARE!!----------RAF BIGGIN HILL ITEMS-----------BUYER BEWARE!!
I BOUGHT THIS ITEM ON EBAY THREE WEEKS AGO THINKING I MIGHT HAVE STUMBLED ACROSS A RARE FIND..........HOWEVER SINCE THEN ANOTHER EXAMPLE WAS LISTED ON EBAY, AND NOW OTHER SIMILAR "BIGGIN HILL" PIECES ARE BEING AUCTIONED ON THE WEBSITE!!
I'M NOT IN A POSITION TO SAY THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THEM....ALL I CAN SAY IS "BUYER BEWARE".......IT SEEMS STRANGE THAT THESE ITEMS HAVE APPEARED FROM NOWHERE AND ARE NOW BEING OFFERED TO THE MARKET IN MULTIPLE TYPES.
MADE OF LEAD, OR WITH LEAD 'LABEL' AND ALL CARRY THE SAME "RAF BIGGIN HILL" STAMP.

RARE!! Pair of Nickel Plated Luftwaffe Flying Goggles
The early War Flying Helmets worn by Lufwaffe Pilots carried much higher quality fittings than the late War examples. Higly polishe nickel plated buckles and oxygen mask clips were the order of the day. I state this as these Goggles look perfect with an earlier Luftwaffe Flying Helmet such as the leather LkP W101 (not yet listed) I've shown them with.
These Model295 Luftwaffe Goggles with nickel plated frames and black cushion very rarely turn up and this pair are still in very wearable condition. Some very light crazing to the cushion and light delam on the left lens edge top and bottom, but the cushion is still soft and flexible and the strap is still elasticated.

SUPERB!! Cased Display of the 'WOODEN WONDER' - deHavilland Mosquito!
A really outstanding and unique desk top display of the most versatile aircraft of WWII - The de Havilland Mosquito.
Everything shown in the pictures comes as part of the display and is included in this listing, and that includes the two very rare Mosquitos by 'Diverse Images'. Both are signed by John "Cats Eyes" Cunningham and are long SOLD OUT through the manufacturers. In the centre is what I believe to be a pewter Mosquito, possibly from Franklin Mint. These all come in their own bespoke display case.

LOOKING FOR IMAGES - RAF Upavon Officers Mess/Bar
What I'm showing in my pictures is a chromed Art Deco Firescreen. The badge on the front shows a bi-plane flying to the stars (Per Ardua Ad Astra). The reverse shows this is likely to have come from RAF Upavon.
Given the overall style I'd say this is probably from the 1920's. Can I ask if anyone has any images from the inside of RAF Upavon which may show this insitu?
The screen was in a pretty poor state when purchased, but having been thoroughly cleaned and sympathetically re-polished it is now quite an eyecatcher. However the polished chrome does make it quite difficult to capture at its best, but I'm sure you get the picture.
As usual your help would be massively appreciated.

VERY RARE!! 1918 Royal Air Force 'Innauguration' Medal - Fully Hallmarked & by 'Vaughtons'
The Royal Air Force was formed on April 1st 1918 with amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service. I believe this medal was struck to commemorate the occassion and only presented to a very elite few.
The medal is struck in solid silver and is fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1918. It is also maker marked "V&S" on the reverse. It comes in its original presentation box, although the hinge would require a bit of tlc to close the box properly. Although lightly tarnished the medal is still crisp and in fine condition....it is unnamed.
I've found it very difficult to find any concrete information on this medal. The information I've supplied is that given to me by its previous owner over ten years ago. I've yet to see another example to either confirm or conflict. so if the information on it is wrong, do please let me know.

SCARCE!! Post-WW1 Pilot Wing of the Australian Flying Corps

OUTSTANDING!! WWII Large Aluminium Avro Lancaster Desk Model - INCREDIBLE DETAIL!!
One of the finest studies of the Avro Lancaster I've seen and with a wingspan of 37cms it is also one of the most impressive looking models I've ever come across.
Handmade in aluminium this has an extraordinary level of detail and accuracy, especially in the Nose, Mid and Tail Gunner positions. The propellers are totally original to the model but the aluminium base appears to be a later replacement. One of the tails has been broken and repaired at some point but this does add to the authenticity and age, rather than detract from the Lanc's appearance.
VERY SCARCE!! Original RAF Instrument Panel MkI Watch Holder - MINT CONDITION!
An absolute "must have" on the instrument panel of a WWII Fighter such as the Spitfire. Very hard to find, especially in good condition...almost impossible to find in MINT condition as this example is.
Still soft, flexible and useable with no hardening, cracks or splits. In other words......"AS NEW"
