Realistic 1:57 scale Boeing B-314 Dixie Clipper Flying Boat.  Aluminum metal fabric covering lightweight wing and fuselage frames.  Almost 3 foot wingspan!

In 1939, Pan Am receives the first Boeing 314, the ultimate in luxury aircraft. Complete with sleeping berths and a real dining salon. The biggest plane of its time, it carried 74 passengers.  The wingspan alone was 152 feet, half a football field.  Given how long it took to fly around the world, you needed the luxury!

It took 5 days and 60 hours in the air to fly from San Francisco to Hong Kong.  The big flying boats were replaced after the war by land-based planes. With their demise an era of opulence passed.  No wonder flying was considered such fun.  Metallic fabric covers lightweight wing and fuselage frames. Transparent portholes. Detailed engines. Nostalgic Pan Am colors.
