Model Airplanes – This large historical reproduction of the B-314 Clipper Aircraft is a replica of the one flown by Pan Am during the golden age of aviation. And, with a wingspan of over 31 inches it is an impressive aviation gift! The Boeing 314 Dixie Clipper is often referred to as a “flying boat,” and is was the largest aircraft of its time. Only 12 of the luxury clipper aircraft were built by Boeing Airplane Company, and 9 were purchased and flown by Pan Am.
Our stunning replica is crafted in some of the same ways as the original Boeing 314. It starts with a wood frame as the base for the fuselage. Fabric is then stretched over the framing for the “skin” of the aircraft. Hand painting completes the exterior of the aircraft, but it is the detail work on the aircraft, particularly the engines, that make this model aircraft truly exceptional. A metal base stand comes with purchase of the aircraft. This remarkable replica is a great collectible gift for a pilot or airplane enthusiast.
