This Crossair McDonald’s McPlane aircraft model is one of the airplanes from the Herpa Wings series of 1/500 scale size airplane models. The 1/500 series of models was launched in 1992, with this particular airplane being issued in 1996 and retired in 2000.
This life-like, authentically detailed scale model for adult collectors is, as are all Herpa models, exceptionally realistic and does replicate the original commercial airliner to a tee, with the original McPlane aircraft being a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 airplane that is designed like a McDonald's restaurant.
