Not the Parkinson kit -- this is PURE SCALE

Definitely NOT the Parkinson kit (square cross-section to fit the Byroblaster fan unit.)

I'm fairly certain that this is one of the copies made from the original AVRO-made display model that the Aerospace Heritage Foundation purchased from an auction down Niagara Falls way about a decade or so ago.

It may well have been the one in the famous CNE picture of Zura and the Silver dart replica.

A fabricator in the Bowmanville area offered to restore the model to like-new condition in exchange for taking molds of the model, with the aim of selling copies as a fund-raising effort for the AHFC.

This model could have been one from that set.

http://ahfc.org/Events/CNE/Cne6.jpg is a shot from a recent CNE AHFC exhibit with Jim Floyd and the model.

Of course, some enterprising modeller could have created the display model from the factory drawings that have been kicking around for years....
