1/20 scale. 20′ wing span. This is a Balsa-Wood Model kit. Whether built for scale or contest flying, the models in this series represent the finest in design and flight capability. Each can be flown using either a rubber motor, gas engine or electric motor (instructions for using electric power supplied in kits, motors not included). Fast, maneuverable, with a modern low wing and total handling ease, the all metal Piper Cherokee 140 has been a common sight airports all over the country. More than just a point to point means of transportation, the 140 is licensed for spins, lazy 8s and chandelles characteristics which made the world famous Piper Cub the leading sport plane of its era. Last but not least, the 140 seats up to 4 adult passengers in relative comfort. Skill level 2
1/32 Scale. 28″ wing span. This is a Balsa-Wood model kit. The B-25 Mitchell was one of the most outstanding medium bombers of World War 2. Conceived in mid-1939, the first production model flew in August 1940 and the first operational success was scored on December 24, 1941 with the destruction of the Japanese submarine. In April 1942, 16 B-25s made a historic raid on Tokyo operating from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet under the command of General Doolittle- a raid that did little damage, but gave the U.S. a psychological lift during the early days of the Pacific Ocean hostilities. During the war years, the RAF, the Soviet Union, China Union, Brazil and the Netherlands also used the B-25. The H version with 16 guns and a 75mm cannon was the most lethal twin-engine bomber of World War 2. Skill level 2

1/16 Scale. 30 3/4′ wing span. Moving parts!! Nicknamed the Sweetheart of Okinawa by the U.S. Marines and Whistling Death by the Japanese, the Corsair performed effectively in two years- the Pacific conflict of World War 2 and the Korean engagement of the early 1950s. The first production Corsair flew on June 25, 1942 at a time when the Japanese offensive seemed irresistible. It was not until late that year, with the delivery of the first Corsair squadrons into the hands of the U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands, that the tide of air combat was permanently turned in favor of the Allied Forces. To the British Navy in the early 1944 goes credit for introducing the Corsair to carrier service. Nine months later, the U.S. Navy cleared the way for the Corsair to become the mainstay of its mighty carrier fleet. Skill level 2

1:16 scale. Wingspan 34 1/2″. Large-scale, highly detailed Balsa-wood plane kit from Guillow’s. The Spirit of St. Louis, piloted by Charles A. Lindbergh, made the first non-stop flight between New York and Paris on May 20-21, 1927. Time airborne-33 hours and 30 minutes. Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY on May 20th with but little sleep the previous night. His aircraft, 1,000 pounds overweight, barely lifted off at the end of the runway missing a telephone pole by a mere 20 feet. Fighting exhaustion most of the time, Lindbergh struggled to keep from falling asleep and at intervals, stuck his head out the window of his plane to refresh himself in the wind-stream. At the end of 28 hours, he sighted the cost of Ireland and for the first time realized that he was on target for his goal, the airfield of Paris, France. While still miles away he sighted the glowing night-lights of Paris. Shortly after, he landed at Le Bourget Airfield to the acclaim of thousands awaiting him on the runway. At that moment, Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis entered aviation?s hall of fame. This kit is designed for .049 to .15 U-Control, .049 gas and rubber powered free flight. Note: The fuselage of the Spirit of St. Louis is large enough to take simple R/C equipment but NO diagrams or instructions are included or available. For ages 14 and up.

It also flew in every front between 1939 and 1945 and was engaged in every major action fought by the R.A.F. in that time.

More than 2500 joined the naval service in 1944 with production of the 3s coming to a halt in the spring of 1944 when an improved version, the F6F-5 began to roll down the assembly lines. Form its first combat engagement, the Hellcat proved superior to its Japanese opponent and maintained this advantage right up to the end of the hostilities. Largely remembered for its exploits during the war in the Pacific, Hellcats served aboard the following as well as other carriers of the U.S. Pacific Fleet- Yorktown, Essex, Enterprise, Hornet, Lexington, Ticonderoga and Intrepid. Notable combat engagements occurred over Marcus Island, Wake Island, Tarawa, and the Marianas. Skill level 2
