1:200 Scale   Length   Width

Trans World Airline NC45341 was manufactured as C-54E serial 44-9092 and converted to civil DC-4 standards for TWA and delivered to the airline in March 1946. The aircraft was delivered wearing the name Trans World Airline four years before it became the official corporate name. NC45341 was named "The Taj Mahal" and was the first TWA aircraft to cross the Atlantic Ocean wearing what would become the standard name in 1950. In 1957 the aircraft was sold to Jordan International Airlines as JY-ABD.

Douglas DC-4

Designed to meet a United Airlines requirement for a long-range passenger airliner, the Douglas DC-4 was first flown on June 7, 1938. The prototype was a very ambitious four-engined, pressurized aircraft that was three times the size of its predecessor, the DC-3a design that proved far too expensive and difficult for civilian airlines to maintain. Douglas revised the design, but by the time it was complete WWII was well underway and development of the aircraft was channeled to the US military. Post-war, the DC-4 became a popular and reliable airliner with major carriers such as National and Northwest Airlines.
