Huge scratch-built British fighter plane

A one-off example of a huge metal and wood scratch built A one-off example of a huge metal and wood scratch built Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engined heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps. Naïve in appearance and construction, with lots of quirky detail includes a pilot sat in the cockpit. Sheets of metal over a wooden frame with aged wear and damage..

Size in inches: H 20” x W 60” x D 80” Weight 30kg

This item does not stand alone and would be better displayed on a stand, we can supply a bespoke cast metal stand at cost. It weighs close to 30kg to allow the plane to spin once mounted.

Completely solid in structure and form, the metal sheets have damage to them across the wing and other areas, this does not affect the structure as the wood frame underneath supports the damage. Missing detail in the propellers and damage to the front of the plane (it looks like it crashes landed at some point). The plane comes with a central support section under its belly that can be added to the wall or on a 6ft tall metal stand “we have one as these and it can be obtained additionally at your cost. An aesthetic, artistic and highly decorative object, in overall good presentable condition if a bit fragile.

Period: 

1940
