Model Airplane Kits
While these model airplane kits appear modern, their designs date from early aviation history. New for 2011 is Avion de Pénaud. In homage to Alphonse Pénaud, who in Paris 1871 designed, built, and flew the first rubber band powered model plane in the world. The Crow was designed and built in 1889. It was the first rubber band-powered model plane to be built and flown in Japan. The Hishou dates from 1911 when the unusual A-shaped design successfully crossed a river in a flight contest. The kits come with balsa wood, ultralight polystyrene, rubber bands, propellers and complete instructions.
