Default AC Rehberger B-314 Model

I am on the hunt for one of these models made by the AC Rehberger company in Chicago. It measures about 9" wing span and I believe it is made out pot metal and very heavy. Some had the PAA emblem on the nose and some did not. I am willing to buy outright or trade for models in my collection. Here is an image of it.

The Rehberger in the post sitting on the 3-view is being readied for a personal air artifacts museum in Atlanta. The new owner wanted a non-ashtray application but done with an Art Deco appearance reflective of Norman Bel Geddes who was based in New York when the Clippers flew for the PAA Atlantic Division from NYC's Marine Air Terminal at Laguardia. The "tintype" photo under the airplane shows opening day in 1940. The airplane will feature new props that are more scale in size and rotate. There is be markings on the airplane reflecting the Yankee Clipper the first B-314 to fly scheduled flights to Ireland

There seems to be a very small population of these Rehberger B-314's so I wish you Good luck with your search.

BTW, would you consider an aluminum reproduction if they were ever produced?

That is a very nice presentation Tom! I actually found a gentleman who owns the original Rehberger B-314 moulds but he is having problems making new castings from it. I would be interested in an aluminum reproduction!
