This T-37 Tweetie Bird Airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original T-37B USAF aircraft manufactured by Cessna. The T-37 is a twin engine trainer so a pilot would understand the fundamentals of flying a jet aircraft. The Tweetie Bird was the primary USAF trainer for 52 years and 1,269 aircraft were ultimately built. The USAF retired the T-37 plane in 2009.
The T-37 Tweetie Bird 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.
