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: Good++
Rare model from the 1950s. This classic model is made of of solid Western Pine - not balsa. It builds up to an impressive display model and features fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder and nacelles all cut to shape and a factory sealed (stapled) small parts envelope with completely formed propellers, wheels, struts, etc. and even a hardwood 'teardrop' shaped display stand with a pre-formed metal support wire. Includes a large full color Pan Am decal sheet in amazing "Near Mint++" condition. The kit has never been started. The small parts bag is still sealed and the other parts have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped 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 sanding would finish them.
