The DC-7 was introduced in 1953, built by Douglas after American Airlines requested a long-range airliner for its use. The DC-7 was very successful in its day, pioneering a number of new long-distance flights for various operators, but it was rather quickly overshadowed by newer jet-powered aircraft in the passenger travel market. Douglas developed a conversion package for DC-7 variants to turn them into airborne freighters, which extended their service life significantly.
The DC-7 model presented here is a DC-7C variant, rendered in the livery of Pan American World Airways. With fine detailing and high-quality hardwood construction, this model is sure to remain a cherished part of any collection for years.

Comments about DC-7C Pan American:
I have been collecting the planes I knew and loved in my childhood. The DC-7C was the epitome of luxury and speed in its heyday -- the last of the great prop planes. I loved the color schemes of the great airlines: Pan Am, TWA, American. This is a perfect model, in perfect scale and flawless detail. I loved the Pan Am blue trim and tail insignia: classic and elegant. It was a treat to set on this luxurious plane. This model is somewhat expensive, but the highest quality always is. The model is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures.
