1950s Constellation Plane
The Autour Du Monde Desktop Plane is a fine quality replica by Authentic Models. Otherwise known as the Lockheed Constellation, this plane had 4 engines and was propeller-driven. A total of 456 were produced over 4 models between 1943 and 1958 at Burbank, California. Unique with their triple tail design and dolphin-shaped fuselage, they were used both as a civilian airliner and as a U.S. military air transport plane. More interestingly, the Constellation was the presidential aircraft for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
This replica Autour Du Monde is entirely hand cast in recycled airplane aluminium. It is hand buffed and polished to an art deco shine. This replica would have been used by travel agencies to advertise airlines, and it would look fantastic on a desk or sideboard in a sophisticated study or library. The stand is included in the shipment.
During the Great War of 1914-18 an art form flourished known as 'trench art'. Hand crafted creations from talented soldiers were constructed using whatever material was at hand; bullet shells, wood, fabric, aircraft aluminium and more. Popular creatons were airplane models, lighters and differently sized clocks. Authentic Models' flight memorabilia is a perfect replica of trench art, from a time when flight was still a hands-on affair.
