Tail section

Picture 2 of 2

Tail section of this magnificent model showing interior. Scale is unknown, but probably 1:25th. Note navigation light on top of stabilizer.

Another treasure from the W. Osgaard & Co. promotion folder and model number 8149. This gem was manufactured in 1961 and is probably 1:25th scale. W. Osgaard & Co. made the 880 cutaway in a number of different liveries, among those TWA and a magnificent version in Convair House Colors. Although short lived, the 880 was a beautiful aircraft, and models like the one shown here are among the most legendary aviation models out there.
