It's a Trans World Convair 880. As for manufacturer, unable to answer that. Likely, several members can though.

Hi there, well what we have here is the best of the best! Those metal cutaway were made in the late 50´s/early 60´s by the danish models makers Fermo and Osgaard. These 2 brand eventualy merge together. The scale is 1/24 or something. Below a short list of the models produced in that range, if anyone has more datas it would be welcome.

-DC-7: SAS
-Electra: KLM/Western
-Caravelle: SAS
-DC-8: SAS/KLM/Pan Am
-Convair 880: TWA/Alaska/House colors

Let’s have a look here for more info: Company History – Osgaard Fermo

Checking this website for some info, I see some interesting conversations members had in the past.
Among others;

Sometimes Worthpoint can also give you a clue about pricing.

Very nice model.

Hi Mbernal83,

It's truly and unique and rare model and could be worth a few thousand dollars to the right model collector.

This one appears to be of plexiglass and the horizontals look to be either off or broken?
Great model. How much are they asking for it?
You should try to get it.
