                    _____________________________________________

This vintage resin Beechcraft factory model of a King Air 90 aircraft has lots of scars, peeling decals, scrapes and scratches, cracks and dings giving it the character which comes with age of a model dating back to 1968.   It is also missing both propellers and spiners.  The decals are very detailed including Beechcraft logo and aircraft badging which was on the original aircraft. 

I believe it was once owned by the now defunct Hudsons Bay Oil and Gas company. This is still to be confirmed.   This image is of a HBOG King Air 90 in Jasper date unknown.    The paint is slightly different and the tail is not visible to identify.   HBOG operated several aircraft C-GHBX  C-GHBG, C-GHBQ over the years and I suspect this was one of theirs.   If you have any additional information, please let me know.  


The aircraft was manufactured in 1968 as serial number LJ-336 and was privately registared as CF-HBW in 1968.    It was later re-registared as C-FHBW and changed hands in the 1970’s to Trent Air Ltd.   It was later aquired by Voyageur Airways in Ontario and was de-registered in 1991 and was aquired by the Danish Government Training School in Kastrup Denmark.

This image below is of the aircraft in the Voyageur hangar with updated paint.
