The H-4 Hercules had an original designation of �HK-1� and was designed by a leading Liberty ship builder, Henry J. Kaiser in cooperation with an aircraft manufacturer, the Hughes Aircraft. The project started during World War II, when the US War Department needed a transport vehicle for supplies to their personnel in UK. But due to constraint in both time and materials, the Hercules aircraft cannot be made of steel. Thus, the manufacturer developed the aircraft using birch wood. The media called it Spruce Goose, although technically it wasn�t made of spruce. Today the Spruce Goose still holds the record for the largest wingspan in the aviation history, and also undisputedly the largest flying boat ever built.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
