Instead of resurrecting the modeling, he chose to gather a collection of images of his favorites he built models of and those which he wish he'd made. His collection of more than 1,200 images is wealth of design history, innovation and inspiration.</p> <p>Lead image: NASA Research Fleet at Dryden Flight Research Center</p> <div class="field
