Douglas C-124 Globemaster airplane model. The C-124 evolved from the earlier Douglas C-74. To facilitate cargo handling, the C-124, or "Old Shakey" as it was affectionately known, featured "clamshell" loading doors and hydraulic ramps in the nose and an elevator under the aft fuselage. It was capable of handling such bulky cargo as tanks, field guns, bull dozers, and trucks. It could also be converted into a transport capable of carrying 200 fully equipped soldiers in its double-decked cabin or 127 litter patients and their attendants.

Mahogany Wood. Scale: 1/100. Wingspan 21 inches, Length 15 1/2 inches.

My father used to maintain these aircraft during the Cold War. I got this one for a gift. When he saw it, his mouth dropped and just said "that's nice". Brought back a lot of memories and story telling.
