Museum Receives Donation of Numerous Large Model Aircraft for Gallery Display

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, located in historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport, has received 18 large models from the estate of Mr. Harry Lee, adding to the 4 already displayed in the museum’s historic gallery.  Mr. Lee’s son, Doug Lee, visited the museum November 4 and delivered the expertly constructed models representing World War I, World War II and modern era civilian and military aircraft.  The museum is privileged to have been  the home of a Curtiss Jenny model constructed in 1918 by Harry Lee’s Father, Ashly Lee, for a number of years.  The models will soon be on display throughout the galleries of the museum, and are a “must-see” on your next visit.  Here are a few examples of the newly donated models:
