Micro Models The 1940 Clipper Mk.II - Reproduction 36 inch Wingspan For R/C or Free Flight, 1/2, F107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Purchased new in 1974. This is a reproduction of a classic design and is half the size of the original. It includes full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts and plans. It is a gas free-flight model designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Micro Models made a great line of scale reproductions of the great gas aircraft of the 1930s. Midway Model Company took over the line around the early 1980s.
