This 1/20 scale model kit of the first engine-powered flying machine to make a successful flight commemorates the dawn of powered flight. On December 17, 1903 Orville Wright launched the Wright Flyer I from a sand dune known as Big Kill Devil Hill near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The flight lasted for twelve seconds and a distance of 120 feet. The Wright Flyer I was the culmination of years of research and testing during which the brothers designed and built all the components of the Flyer including the propellers and engine.
This kit contains full instructions, full-size plan, printed balsa sheet wood, strip wood, and tissue covering. In addition you will need a building board, hobby knife, glue, thread, and a fine needle or drill bit. This is the "Original" kit that has been the choice for historic museum displays. The printwood of this kit is printed on a 1903 printing press, the year the original plane was flown.
