Model Kits / D-10 Wright Flyer I|
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, a full-size
plan, printed balsa, hand-picked balsa strip wood, and tissue covering.
In addition you will need a building board,
hobby knife, glue,
thread, and fine sandpaper.

"Here is a picture of my Wright Bi plane built some years back. At that time I believe you included silkspan in your kits. As you can see I never completed the engine detail. However, I found it a very satisfactory kit to build." E.A. Materson
