The Dreamscape model here is built very near to scale. Engines are modeled. Stratocruiser is fully textured and comes with animateable control surfaces, landing gear, cowl flaps and propellers. It is available in several different formats.
The Stratocruiser was developed in parallel with the military C-97 Stratofreighter after WWII. It was a derivative of the B-29 Superfortress and B-50 Superfortress. Using the same wings, stabilizer and tail as well as engines as the B-50 the Stratofreighter and Stratocruiser had a large diameter fuselage added to the airframe above the wing root. It was a long range airplane, making travel around the world possible, however it was fairly slow. It began service in 1947 and continued until retired in 1961. Some of Boeing 377 were heavily modified with extreme fuselage expansions. Called the guppies they were used for transporting large objects that would not normally fit in an aircraft.
