Details

The Spirit of St. Louis, piloted by Charles A. Lindbergh, made the first non-stop flight between New York and Paris on May 20-21, 1927. Time airborne-33 hours and 30 minutes. Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY on May 20th with but little sleep the previous night. His aircraft, 1,000 pounds overweight, barely lifted off at the end of the runway missing a telephone pole by a mere 20 feet. Fighting exhaustion most of the time, Lindbergh struggled to keep from falling asleep. At the end of 28 hours, he sighted the coast of Ireland and then while still miles away he sighted the glowing night-lights of Paris. Shortly after, he landed at Le Bourget Airfield to the acclaim of thousands awaiting him on the runway. At that moment, Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis entered aviation’s hall of fame..

The Guillow's 800 Series is a range of beautiful large scale balsa models, from the famous Stearman PT-17 trainer to the history making Spirit of St. Louis. Their latest release, the DC-3, can also be built as a C-47 and decals & instructions to build either model are included. Each model is a small but faithful replica of an airplane widely known for deeds in wartime or, like the Cessna Skyhawk, for its present day popularity. Here is model building worthy of the time and effort, you would be hard pressed to find a finer kit available. Scale models as only Guillow makes them that contain the best quality materials and instructions that have made Guillow kits the "Best in Balsa".

A great kit representing excellent value for money and many hours of fun!

Also makes a magnificent display piece.
