1/48 284-169 Renwal Frank Hawks JN-4 Heddon Jenny Barnstormer
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Exc+
Still factory sealed but the seal has split. After WWI there was a surplus of JN-4 aircraft and many found their way into barnstorming across the country. Frank Hawks was one such pilot. Heddon, an enterprising fishing tackle manufacture, hired Frank to pilot this brilliantly painted Jenny in air shows as an advertising plan. This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits. The model has an injection molded inner structure of ribs and stringers like a real aircraft, then the modeler covers it with provided authentic pre-colored Aeroskin fabric. There is no painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model.
