What scale? That's a Grumman Goose.

There are quite a few 1/48 Grumman Goose kits on eBay right now.

The Goose is late 30s not late 20s.

The actual plane used for the show was up for sale 10+ years ago. It was out of my price range.

If you want the same plane as the show, the Grumman G-21 "Goose" I see that ERTL made a diecast (size unknown to me)


On Ebay now:

And here is a 1/48th scale kit on eBay as well:
