A final coat of clear polyurethane seals the finish for lasting protection to preserve that just out of the box look. Your limited edition heirloom can be passed confidently from your generation to the next. The Boeing Model 1, also known as the B & W Seaplane, was a United States single-engine biplane seaplane aircraft. It was the first Boeing product and carried the initials of its designers, William Boeing and Lt. Conrad Westervelt USN. The first B & W was completed in June 1916, and was made of wood, with wire bracing, and was linen-covered. Two were completed, and sold to the New Zealand Flying School; this sale became Boeing's first international sale. In June 1919, the B&W set a New Zealand altitude record of 6,500 feet. The B & Ws were later used for express and airmail deliveries, making New Zealand's first official airmail flight in December 1919.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
