This handsome model plane is of the T-2C Buckeye US Naval aircraft. The T-2 Buckeye was a trainer aircraft for naval pilots which were manufactured from 1958 to 2008. Interesting is that the Buckeye got its name from the state tree of Ohio, as the production facility was in that state. Ultimately 529 units of the T-2 Buckeye were built.
The T-2C Buckeye model airplane is crafted from Philippine mahogany wood, and is a striking aviation gift. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and it is a magnificent collectible. The model is fully assembled and arrives with a display base.
