Leon Thompson's model collection

Picture 1 of 15

Contractor Leon Thompson’s collection, which primarily features custom-made 1:3 scale models, is housed in a 3,000-square foot building on his Florida homestead. When he buys a model, he asks each model maker to give him the history of the piece and how they designed it, which he displays on cards alongside the model. Thompson started with small diecast models, and still owns several, but now likes to concentrate on larger scale models.
