Product Description

Pan Am DC-6B
Registration N5121V

The Douglas DC-6B first flew on February 10, 1951 with its first scheduled passenger
flight on April 11, 1951 with United Airlines. The DC-6 might have had the same wingspan
as the DC-4 but that is all. The DC-6 fuselage was longer and stronger and pressurized.
The more powerful engines used a 3-bladed propeller capable of reversing pitch for of
the 288 produced being delivered on November 17, 1958.


In September 1950 Pan American World Airways ordered 45 DC-6B aircraft. The first Pan
Am aircraft made its maiden flight on May 1, 1952 on the New York to London route. On
April 26, 1954 Pan Am took possession of N5121V MSN 44121/470 and named it
“Clipper Splendid”. This aircraft operated with Pan Am until March 2, 1961 when it was
sold to Loftleidir and registered as TF-LLC. After 2 additional owners the aircraft ended
its career being scrapped by the Peruvian Air Force as FAP-380.

  1. Hobby Master Pan Am DC-6B N512V Clipper "Splendid"Review by James F
    Customer Rating

    This DC-6B was one of 700 DC-6s produced by Douglas from 1948-1958. N512V joined Pan American in 1954. The aircraft was designated to compete with the Lockheed Constellation.The model features detailed window markings and wing markings with the registration number and Pan Am on the top side of the wings. This white livery followed the PAA livery which was also white. This one has the Pan Am meatball on it. The props spin but the tires don't. In 200 scale we now have an amazing number of models from the old Western Model Company as well as Hobby Master in the Pan Am liveries from the flying boats of the 20s and 30s to the 747s before Pan Am folded.
