C-36 Strombecker Douglas DC-6 Flagship - American Airlines - 13.5 inch Wingspan Solid Wood Model
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Builder kit only - please read carefully. Classic large 13.5 inch wingspan kit. Made of solid Western Pine - not balsa. Builds up to an impressive display model. Kit includes fuselage, wings, elevators and nacelles all cut to shape, nose weight, wood filler, cement mix and sandpaper and large full color American Airlines decal sheet. NOTE: Those are the only parts present. The rudder, wheels, gear struts and props are missing. The instructions show the full size rudder, so making one is simple. The glare shield has been cut from the instructions but is present, but a corner of the glare shield is missing. The kit has never been started. NOTE: instructions are photocopies. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood pre-shaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.
