Selling on Friday


This is a very unique model plane. Hand built with metal construction it is similar to the Ford-Stout Tri-Motor with only a center engine. This model had details not seen on a toy such as exposed control wires, detailed radial engine and seats in the cockpit. It was originally fitted with running lights on both wings plus a light to illuminate the interior of the cockpit. Its construction leads us to believe this may have been a contemporary film prop from the early 1930s. It is showing wear and the seams are exhibiting cracks, but the basic structure of the plane is rather solid. This could be a lost treasure from the golden age of cinema. 50" wingspan, 35" fuselage, 10.5" high.
