Vickers Vimy crew lead figures – Tom Young

Adelaide’s Tom Young began painting lead figures as a boy and amassed a magnificent collection over many decades.
Among them are Smith crew members just as they were photographed before their departure from Hounslow, England, in November 1919.

The figures sat in a cabinet beside Tom’s Vickers Vimy model and other epic flight treasures, including those pictured below, in the Young family kitchen for many years.
