C-48-179 Strombecker Douglas DC-6 Super 6 - Pan American Airlines Clipper 13.5 inch Wingspan Solid Wooden Aircraft Kit
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Poor
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, rudder and nacelles all cut to shape, Casein Glue mix, sandpaper, and a parts bag with completely formed propellers. Large full color Pan Am decal sheet. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing stand wire. Stand base is included. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: box is complete but heavily stained, especially the left short side. Decals are intact but water damaged; please see the article on this website about saving old decals. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. 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 sanding would finish them.
