    Getting Back Into Modeling After 20yrs This Helped Me To Remember To Be Patient, DON’T Get In A Hurry.

    A simple stick model that builds easy, but flies only average. This very same model sold for 79 cents in the 70s

    I’ve been making these since I was a kid 30 years ago, and my dad was making these when he was a kid 50 years ago. They haven’t changed at all.

    I thought I was buying a plane already assembled, however there is a great deal of work needed to put this together. The pieces are nothing more than sticks of balsa wood and tissue paper. It has taken over three hours to put this model plane together. It does however fly pretty well when completed – but it’s definitely not worth it.

    I have a bunch of balsa pieces.
    Next time, I’m going to a real store.

    For what it is worth… it is durable, but the reason I rated a 3 is because, lets face it, it is a balsa wood plane!

    Great model to begin my venture into building a flying model!

    Materials a little thin, had some trouble to keep the wings from warping.
