Hughes H-4 Hercules

Working with The Western Museum of flight and several ex-Hughes Aircraft employees, Joe Bok and his team of Aviators were given access to "never before seen" photographs and original Hughes Aircraft Company Flying Boat blueprints and documents detailing the technical intricacies of the complex and graceful Hughes Flying Boat. Joe and his team have turned this information into one of the most graceful and beautifully detailed model airplanes ever built.
