Welcome to Classic Machine Films
SADLY, THE COST OF KEEPING THE CLASSIC MACHINE FILMS ONLINE SHOP OPEN IS GREATER THAN THE REVENUE IT'S GENERATING, SO WE'LL BE CLOSING DOWN AT THE END OF JUNE 2022. ALL PRODUCTS WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THAT DATE.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED THE SHOP DURING THE EARLY LOCKDOWNS, WHEN IT WAS MY MAIN SOURCE OF INCOME.
Classic Machine Films was established in 2010 with the sole purpose of producing the definitive documentary about The Black Arrows, the RAF's leading formation aerobatics display team in the 1950s. Since the film was released, to critical acclaim, it has gone on to sell many hundreds of copies worldwide and has been reprinted twice. Now, we are pleased to announce a new product line to complement the DVD - reprints of iconic photographs of the teams of the 1950s and early 60s, on the ground and in the air, including The Black Arrows, The Blue Diamonds and more. These images have been painstakingly restored to remove fading, staining, dust, scratches, tears, creases and other damage. Please browse the catalogue to see the full collection. Further images will be added weekly, so please sign up for updates or like our Facebook page to keep informed about new releases. In addition to the photographs, we now have a small range of original artwork in the form of imagined 3d scenes and prints of digital acrylic and watercolour paintings.
If you are a former member of an RAF display team from the 1950s or 60s, or are related to a member and have photographs of the teams that you would like restored and/or printed, please email Ian Stark at email@example.com. Likewise, if you would like to know whether we have photographs of specific team members or events, please contact Ian.
