THE
DORA
MODEL COLLECTION



Highlights
of the Dora Collection
include models that depict the airplane manufacturer’s
own livery, the so-called house colors livery, as well as those of the first
delivery airline customers. Also included are proposal models that builders
commissioned for sales campaigns of new and design-stage aircraft –
some of which never made it to production. The models date from the late 1940’s
to the mid-1970’s, when most models were made of metal instead of the
ubiquitous resin/plastic of today. The collection is based in New York City.
All models are listed below & are in chronological order from their
approximate date of manufacture.
