While these two push propeller model aeroplane kits are decidedly modern in design, surprisingly they date from the early years of aviation history in Japan. The Crow design was the first rubber band-powered model plane to ever be built and flown in Japan.

Designed and built in 1889, when its inventor was inspired while observing a crow’s wings in flight. The Hishou is an A-shaped plane with two reverse propellers. The design dates from 1911 when three A-shaped models successfully crossed over the Sumida River in a flight contest.

Both kits use balsa wood, ultralight polystyrene, rubber bands and 127mm reverse-pitch propellers. Each plane has a wingspan of 406mm and overall length of 457mm. Complete illustrated instructions are included. The kits are packed in boxes with appealing graphics in Japanese and English.

Please note: The set does not contain glue. The glue to be used with the kit is a standard paper glue which is easily accessible from any stationery shop.

The kit is very good, unfortunately the glue is missing!! I reckon that the item, glue included, would be fantastic...
