This B-58 Hustler Model Airplane is a scale model of the original Convair B-58A Hustler aircraft. The B-58 Hustler USAF Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The B-58 Hustler model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The Convair B-58 Hustler was the first operational jet bomber capable of Mach 2 supersonic flight and was manufactured for the United States Air Force for service in the Strategic Air Command (SAC) during the late 1950s. The B-58 Hustler design was the first "true" USAF supersonic bomber program. The Convair design was based on a delta wing with a leading-edge sweep of 60° with four engines, capable of flying at twice the speed of sound. Because of heat generated at Mach 2 cruise, not only the crew compartment, but the wheel wells and electronics bay were pressurized and air conditioned.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
