Reply To: replicas in museum exhibits


Wings of Eagles Discovery Center has three replica aircraft ( in addition to14 actural originals.  Two are full size, accurate, exqisitly rendered replicas of WWII German and Japanese aircraft.  There is also 7/8, flyable replica of a WWI Nieuport 11.  In addition we use large scale and 1/72 to 1/48 scale models in period exhibits.  The whole experience is enhanced by the physical and verbal presentation.  As for ducuments and photos; copies from archival storage are always safest.
