Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

From the Lindberg description:

The ambition of A.V. Roe was to produce airplanes at moderate cost, with ease of maintenance and transportation. The latter was attained by making the wings in setions, and bolting them together. The outer sections were hinged at the rear spar to facilitate warpoing of the wing's trailing edges downwards, thereby preserving lateral control. This was affected by cables running from the control wheel on the steering column to the tops of the outer rear struts. The Avro biplane was seen with a variety of tail designs, and the open fuselage framework was eventually covered with fabric, sized and varnished. 

A reliable engine made by Green Engine Co. was fitted. It was water-cooled by a radiator placed under the upper wing leading edge. Behind this were provisions to carry a passenger in front of the pilot.

Includes a bonus 48-piece jigsaw puzzle featuring the classic box art illustration!
