Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

From the manufacturer:

Before his historic flight across the channel in July 1908, mishaps befell M. Bleriot's machines with remarkable regularity. He nevertheless survived and continued with his experiments in the firm belief of the monoplane principle. His designs were many and in 1910 he set up a school of flying at the London Aerodrome, Hendon.

This model depicts a typical school machine with a 3-cylinder Anzani engine of a dubious 35 HP. The under carriage was of the castoring type, to contend with cross-wind landings, and skids replaced the tail wheel to reduce the landing run. Later, a more powerful engine, the 50 HP Gnome Rotary engine, was installed. With a tail wind, its speed was around 105 mph.

This kit includes a commemorative 48-piece puzzle featuring the classic box illustration.
