This CG-4 Waco Glider USAAC airplane is a replica scale model of the original aircraft designed by Waco Aircraft Company. The CG-4 was the most widely used troop or cargo military glider in World War II. It could transport up to ¼ ton, like a jeep, or 13 troops with equipment. Interestingly is that the Waco Glider was manufactured by companies like Ford Motor Company, Cessna, and Gibson Refrigerator. Just over 13,900 were produced.
The Waco Glider model aircraft is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that 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. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
