Wooster was a model airplane manufacturer that introduced plane model collectors to snap together plastic commercial airline models. In 2000, Wooster was bought over by another plastic plane model manufacturer, PPC Holland[?], and now their line of planes is known as Wooster PPC.

Wooster's plastic airliners are in the 1:200 or 1:250 scale. Wooster used to claim at one time that it was the exclusive snap fit plastic model provider for more than 200 major airlines around the world. They do provide airlines with samples so the airlines could use them as a means of self advertising, and also they sell them to hobby shops, which in turn sell them to collectors at prices ranging from 20 to 30 American Dollars.
