The planes are 3/8 scale and range from 3 to 7 1/2 inches long. Each is signed, numbered and dated. This set is numbered 3 of three sets produced. Dovetailed steel, gunmetal and rosewood construction, made to exact scale using the traditional methods and tools. The planes were produced for the late Joseph Torras of Shelburne, Massachusetts and delivered to him on April 3, 1985. The original letter of conveyance, together with a Robert Baker business card are included with the set. The planes are nestled in a custom mahogany box with key. The key sometimes works. A previous set was sold at a Brown's auction for $24150.00. The 3rd set resides in a Connecticut museum. It is likely that this is the last and only set that will ever be offered for sale.
