Model Planes – This American DC-3 model aircraft is a scale replica of the original American Airlines DC-3 aircraft built by Douglas Aircraft Company. The DC-3 really transformed air transport in the mid-1930s. It was a reliable aircraft, and more importantly, could land on the short runways that were common at that time. Cruise speed was 207 mph and it had a range of roughly 1500 miles.
The American Airlines DC-3 model arrives completely assembled and has an attractive base for aircraft display. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously crafted and painted following exact blueprint details of the original airplane. The end result is a handsome, collectible sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
