This NC-4 airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original aircraft manufactured by Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company. The NC-4 or Curtiss Navy airplane was nicknamed Nancy. It was primarily designed for long range patrol, but the NC-4 aircraft was the first to complete transatlantic flight. Only 10 of the Nancy’s were built, but you can see an original at the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, FL.
The Curtiss NC-4 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.
