Northrop Alpha TWA 1/24

$191.99

In StockIn StockOut of stock

Designed by John K. Northrop, this aircraft first flew in 1930, with a total of 17 built


The Northrop Alpha was an American single-engine, all-metal, seven-seat, low-wing monoplane fast mail/passenger transport aircraft. The aircraft first flew in 1930, with a total of 17 built. The Alpha benefitted from two revolutionary aerodynamic advancements: wing fillets and a multicellular stressed-skin wing. The Alpha was the first commercial-aircraft to use rubber deicer boots on wing and empennage leading edges which, in conjunction with state-of-the-art radio navigation equipment, gave it day or night, all-weather capability. The Alpha was designed by John K. Northrop, who also designed the Lockheed Vega.

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!
