Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

This kit from BAT Project is an entirely new mold! The S-307 is the world's first commercial airliner with a pressured cabin, designed and developed in the United States. Nicknamed the Stratoliner, it made its first flight in 1938, and a total of 10 of this aircraft were manufactured. This was the first airliner to provide comfortable air travel even when flying at an altitude of 6,100 meters to avoid bad weather. The main wing, tail wing and landing gear used were the same as Boeing's B-17 bomber, and there are also many similarities in the airframe structure and pressurization technology. When the U.S. entered World War II, the S-307 was recruited for military use and operated as a transport aircraft; it was also purchased by Howard Hughes, the legendary businessman, filmmaker, aviator, inventory and 20th century billionaire.

This kit includes the large vertical stabilizer parts found on later versions of this aircraft, as well as painting mask stickers and decals for two versions (Clipper Rainbow and Clipper Flying Cloud). Place your order today!
