Great plane
By jeremy.s.michels1 March 17, 2015
I usually build plastic models, but these can be a nice change every once in a while. The kit supplies you with everything you need, except for the glue. As far as putting the wood together, that's pretty easy. Getting the plastic pieces off their sheet can be tricky. The kit comes with tissue paper to go over the plane so it can be flown outside. In my opinion, the planes look just as good without the tissue as they do with. The best tools to have are a sharp knife, lots of sand paper, and Elmer's glue

Very realistic for a rubber powered plane
By jwhowle November 26, 2016
This is a great model, my 15 year old son had no problems putting this together. Only issue is that it did not provide modeling clay for balancing. One recommendation, don't glue the nose on until you have painted and balanced. It was tail heavy so required a fair amount of weight in the nose. Metal washers embedded in clay helped to balance it out due to limited space in the nose. Over all this was a good build and we highly recommend it.
