1961 Topping, Inc. catalog. Kind of awesome, if you haven't seen it yet.
Back before computers were ubiquitous, salespeople had a hard time showing their customers what stuff looked like, especially big stuff. Sure, there were photographs and drawings, but for a full three-dimensional effect, you needed a physical model. That’s where Topping, Inc. came in.

Doing research on the F-100C for my air speed record series, and happened across this one with unusual markings verging on Cold-War-meets-gay-pride-parade. The one pictured here is a model (and an exquisitely done one), but the model is an exact replica of an actual USAF aircraft piloted by Col. George Laven.
