Large Wooden Cutaway Teaching Model of Jet Plane
Large Wooden Cutaway Teaching Model of Jet Plane I'm guessing that this Buck Rogers style model dates to the late 1930s. The scale is bigger than it looks and is well over four foot long. It sits on a custom-made museum quality display stand. It has a real Space Age feel but is softened by the wood construction. The whole fuselage is hinged and opens up to show what must be a jet engine mock up. 12 in.Hx24 in.Wx6 in.D $2,200
