1/61 3722 ITC Tri-Motor Stinson Model T - Eastern Air Service
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Rare. This famous early 1930s transport saw extensive use and was the primary competition of the Ford Tri-Motor. The Stinson Tri-Motor was the brainchild of E.L. Cord, the money behind the aircraft and the owner of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg automobile company. Cord also owned Lycoming, the engines that ended up on the final product. Another of Cord's companies was Century Airlines, which naturally used the aircraft. Century later became part of American Airlines. The Model T was used by many other airlines including Eastern, Delta, Braniff, TWA, United and American when they rolled up Century. The Tri-Motor carried 10 passengers, baggage and of course the mail, which was critical to early airline revenue. The aircraft proved successful and economical to operate. The model features clear cabin and cockpit windows, interior with passengers and pilots and clear blue-tinted display stand. Never started. The plastic parts (red and clear) are inventoried complete. Includes instructions. NOTE: missing decals.
