Dornier Do-X Wooden Moch-up

"Dornier Do-X design work began in 1924 in Altenrhein, Switzerland and nearly a quarter million man-hours were expended over the next five years before full size wooden mockup of the aircraft was completed."

"A new feature was the division into three decks. The cockpit, the navigation and radio room and the machinery room were located on the upper deck, while the main deck with its luxurious furnishings provided seating for up to 66 passengers. The lower deck was used to store fuel and supplies. For the first time in the history of aviation, a one-to-one wooden mock-up of an aircraft was built. For the construction of the Do X, a special assembly hangar with a slipway had to be erected, the site selected being Altenrhein on the Swiss shore of Lake Constance."
