Boeing Stratocruiser   6.5"   8.5"

Boeing B377 Stratocruiser c/n 15965 made its first flight on July 8, 1949 and was the first B377 for United Airlines. It was delivered on September 28, 1949 and registered as N31225 "Mainliner Hawaii". In September 1954 United decided to sell all its B377’s to BOAC and in December N31225 was sold and registered as G-ANTX "RMA Cleopatra". In 1959 it was sold to Ghana Airways titles then sold to Transocean and after a couple of other owners eventually ended up being scrapped in 1964.

Boeing Stratocruiser

Designed as a long-range airliner for premier services across the Atlantic and the Pacific, the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser was first flown on July 8, 1947. This luxurious post-war double-decker propeller airliner had a spiral staircase leading to a lower-level lounge and state-of-the-art pressurization, but it was expensive to maintain and operate. Just 56 of the type were built as airliners—the remaining saw service as C-97 military transports or KC-97 tankers. Stratocruisers continued to fly commercially until the 1960s, when the introduction of the Boeing 707 and the de Havilland Comet made them obsolete.

Hobby Master's 1:200 scale Stratocruiser is an exceptionally well crafted model. The fuselage is constructed from separate upper and lower castings, accurately replicating the two intersecting circular fuselage sections of the actual aircraft, and joined together with a near seamless fit. The solid metal wings are finely cast featuring a near razor thin trailing edge and integrated engine nacelles. Additional details include pad-printed windows and doors recreated in crisp scale miniature, a delicate top mounted antenna and metal landing gear. The series includes passenger airliners and military variants such as the C-97 freighter and KC-97 tanker with a configurable tail boom probe.
