Model Airplane Factory offers handmade desktop Fairchild C123 Provider Military Transport Wood Model Airplane, artistically created from the finest grade of kiln-dried Mahogany wood. After carving the wood, the C-123 Provider model airplane will undergo stages of fine sanding, between primer coats, to produce a silky smooth finish ready for final painting. The C123 Provider wooden model airplane will be painted according to the specific color scheme of the USAF Fairchild C-123 Provider aircraft for their historical significance and authenticity. This C-123 Provider model airplane has a dimension of 18.5" wingspan and has a length of 12.75".


By 1962, the C-123 Provider variant aircraft was evaluated for operations in Southeast Asia and their stellar performance led the Air Force to upgrade 180 of the C-123B aircraft to the new C-123 Provider standard, which featured auxiliary jet pods underneath the wings and anti-skid brakes. In 1968, the aircraft helped resupply troops in Khe Sanh, Vietnam during a three-month siege by North Vietnam.

A number of C-123s were configured as VIP transport, including General William Westmoreland's White Whale. The C-123 Provider also gained notoriety for its use in "Operation Ranch Hand" defoliation operations in Vietnam. Oddly enough, the USAF had officially chosen not to procure the VC-123C VIP transport, opting instead for the Convair VC-131D.
