Workhorse of the Skies
The Desktop DC3 is a sleek and elegant replica of the plane known as the 'Workhorse of the skies'. Manufactured in their thousands until the end of the 1950s by Douglas Aircraft works, they were used for just about everything from civilian to military, government to private. They were very reliable and are sometimes still seen today flying over remote airports and landing on the tightest of strips.
This replica DC3 is entirely hand cast in recycled airplane aluminium and features riveted propellers like the real plane. It is a nostalgic and perfect replica of an early travel agent advertising sign. Place on a desk or bookshelf in a sophisticated study or library as a piece of aviation decor.
During the Great War of 1914-18 an art form flourished known as 'trench art'. Hand crafted creations from gifted soldiers were constructed using whatever material was at hand; bullet shells, wood, fabric and aircraft aluminium etc. Popular creatons were airplane models, lighters and different sized clocks. Authentic Models' flight memorabilia is a perfect replica of trench art, from a time when flight was still a hands-on affair.
