Model History : This Model Has Another Great History Behind It!
It is an Original Douglas Factory Model which was produced in
the early 1960s by the Douglas Aircraft Model Shop / Marketing
Aids. I acquired it on March, 2004 from my friend Al Pelletier
in Canada. Al had acquired this model in a barely recognizable
CP Air Livery because it had been used as a WEATHER VANE OF
ALL THINGS
, for many years at Qualicum bay on Vancouver Island
and thus was very, very worn. If
you would like to see some before polish & refinish photos
of this model please click here.
Al was going to have it repainte
