Large Aluminium Douglas DC-7 Model Airplane, circa 1953



A fabulous and impressively sized aluminium model of a DC-7 plane which was built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1953-1958. It was the last major piston engine-powered transport made by Douglas, being developed shortly after the earliest jet airliner, the de Havilland Comet, entered service and only a few years before the jet-powered Douglas DC-8 first flew. This is an over-sized model with a 30" wingspan. The body of the plane shows normal casting scaring normal for these models and the stand has been newly custom made to display this masterpiece. An excellent piece of mid-century art perfect for the office. Excellent condition measuring 27 1/2" in length x 30" wingspan x 15 1/2" tall. Item: 41951.
