WRIGHT FLYER 1903

On December 17th 1903 Orville and Wilber Wright flew into history. After a coin toss it was decided that Orville would make the first flight. The first flight of a controlled powered flight, of a heavier than air, aircraft lasted 12 seconds and covered a distance of 120 feet. That same day Wilber flew a distance of 852 feet.


Model Airways
This true-to-life static model reproduces virtually every detail of the real aircraft. We’ve designed our model without the customary fabric covering to show its fascinating structural components. Kit contains laser cut basswood parts for ribs and other wooden components plus a host of Britannia metal parts for building the engine, complete with cylinders, magneto and radiator. We include brass chain and over 160 photo-etched brass parts for fittings and braces to simulate the Wright Brothers’ construction methods. Three detailed, actual size plan sheets and a 28-page illustrated step-by-step assembly manual will assist both novice and expert modelers in the completion of a museum quality model.
