This E 3A Sentry AWACS Airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original E-3A Sentry USAF aircraft manufactured by Boeing. The E-3A Sentry AWACS is an Airborne Warning And Control System that provides weather surveillance, command, control, and communications to the US, UK, France, NATO and other allied air defense forces. Built from a modified Boeing 707-320 aircraft, the E 3 flew from 1977 to 1992, and ultimately 68 aircraft were manufactured.
The E-3A Sentry AWACS USAF model 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.
