Interesting find overscan.

Description:
Quote
Up for auction is this really nice U.S.A.F. jet desk model.  It was purchased at an estate sale here in town.  The gentleman who collected these was a retired engineer from Edwards Air Force base.  I do not know anything about these and his family didn't either.  

The model is in perfect condition, no broken parts.  It is made of heavy plastic, it seems like its all in one piece.  The wing span is 7" and the length of the jet is 12".

This comes with its own stand.  We have a neighbor who is a test pilot at Edwards Air Force base and he said all of the models are on their correct stands.  The stand says "P.1127 V/STOL AIRCRAFT NORTHROP/ HAWKER NORTHROP NORAIR"
