Model Airplanes – This E-6B Mercury Model Airplane is a replica scale model of the original Boeing U.S. Navy E-6B aircraft. The E-6B Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. Our Mercury model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The E-6B Mercury is also known as TACAMO (TAke Charge And Move Out). The Mercury is an airborne command post and communications relay to fleet ballistic missiles and submarines. This would be crucial should there be a nuclear event. The aircraft itself is based upon the Boeing 707-320 airplane.
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.
