second project
By Dan&Tami February 10, 2014
This was my second project and proved to be a challenge on the tail trying to take off the 2 cent bars that helped hold it together while glue set. other then that with me being a beginner found no other issues with it.

A fun kit to build
By jimmbbo February 17, 2015
This historic airplane has been in Monogram's stable FOREVER, and still builds into a good representation of the original Flyer. Assembly is straightforward, if the wing assembly is a bit fiddly, and installing the rigging requires patience, but is easier than most biplanes, and can be accomplished with patience. When completed, the Flyer makes an interesting historical display if displayed next to an F/A 18 or F22. Definitely not a first model, but someone with a few models built will enjoy the challenge to develop new modeling skills

Very nice and fun model kit
By ghrcollector August 25, 2017
This is a very old but very nice kit and the only plastic version of the Wright Flyer. Comes with the plane, figures, and small details to recreate the first flight. The wing supports are a little over sized but dont look out of place to me. The rigging does require some patience as it does with any kit. The detail is nice for the price, really exceeded my expectations all around. You cant go wrong for the money, I highly recommend this kit for any skill level if you like old planes.
