These Douglas models depict different fuselage lengths, cunard size and sub / supersonic configuration. I would like to know who may have made these models. Any ideas?

Welcome aboard N1011N,

and that needs a good search.

Thanks for your comments.

Were Douglas Factory Models made from resin too?
There are no markings or serial numbers.
The stand is perspex / plastic however I suspect it includes a metallic ballast given its weight.
I suspected Pacific Miniatures however have no proof!

On a side note, aside from details provided on this thread, is there any info regarding the two different variants depicted, i.e. weight, range, dimensions etc...

I'm unconvinced that that is an SST. Looks like a bomber to me.

The nose doesn't look like anything to me.
