As to the cost... I have no idea either.
But that mock-up is not unique....
There are still two mock-ups like it surviving in the UK....
One is a full-scale cabin arrangement mock-up, and as far as I know it's still for sale.
The other is a cockpit mock-up, and on display in a Bristol museum.
Looks like there are passenger steps on the port side... would there have been an inside sample layout as well?
Yes, there was.
And I'd love to see a colour pic of all those different uniforms.
1) It seems the mock-up in question was first displayed at the 1967 Le Bourget airshow.
2) Re the cost..... somebody in Germany actually went and built a full-scale Concorde model.....
And that one still exists, as the museum's café.
In a way... that was the airlines dream... 150 seats.
