    Superb Large Model of a Pan American Airways Douglas DC-3. This fabulous model of the venerable DC-3 has been expertly rendered sparing no attention to detail. The model has been constructed using light fabric (or paper) over wood stringers. The fuselage measures 26" and the total wingspan is about 39". The landing gear struts are meticulously detailed in metal and the tires are made of soft rubber. The ailerons, elevators, and rudder are moveable and the propellers spin freely. The wings detach at the roots to make storage and transport easier. The model is painted silver overall and finished in the livery of Pan American Airways (NC33611). The aircraft depicted by this model was delivered to Pan American in 1941 and crashed while taking off at Piarco Airport, Port of Spain Trinidad on June 4, 1945. Other than some trivial scuffs to the paint this exceptional model is in fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
