The Guillows Mini-Models range of rubber-powered balsa-framed aeroplanes offers an excellent introduction to the hobby of balsa modelling. Each kit features accurate laser-cut balsa pieces, plastic propeller and wheels, stick-on wing coverings and rubber band motor. Clear and detailed instructions are included along with a full layout sheet for the construction of the wings. The completed model has a wingspan of approximately 11 inches (28cm). Note that this model can achieve a flight distance of around 50 ft (30 m) so please allow adequate space when flying! The model can be constructed using white (PVA) glue which is not included.
At Raven Scale Models, we are happy to advise that this range of models is suitable for beginners and has a minimum construction time of around one hour.
The 4501 German Fighter is fashioned after WWII's Messerschmitt which was once unmatched in speed, maneuverability and fire power until it met its equal in the famed British Spitfire.
