An employee adding details to the model at the W. Osgaard & Co. workshop in 1957. Note the additional three models in the background and what appears to be a scale drawing of an SAS DC-7C on the wall.

This model is one of the highlights of the late fifties, showing the luxurious interior offered to the traveler at the time. Cast in aluminum and painted, it was offered in the odd scale of 1:40. The seats are injection-molded plastic with a velvet-like  covering not seen on other models from W. Osgaard & Co. A series of probably around 20 these models were manufactured in 1957. Image from the original W. Osgaard & Co. promotion folder, model number 5072. These models show up from time to time in collections on the web.
