Up until now, we have featured primarily wood ship model kits. However, the kits listed here are without a doubt the finest most detailed wooden aircraft kits manufactured anywhere. Model Airways is a division of Model Shipways, and they have done a fine job in creating these museum quality models. We hope you find them to your liking, as we feel they deserve to be presented here. We are also including an excellent new kit by Amati, MONOPLANE BLERIOT XI 1909.

NIEUPORT 28 - 1917
Eddie Rickenbacker's Favorite Fighter

s-nieuporta.jpg - 0 Bytes Model Airways has gone to great lengths to recreate this legendary World War I fighter. They have designed their Nieuport 28 from original plans, photographs and restored aircraft on display in several museums. The historically accurate model reproduces virtually every detail of the real airplane. The open framework allows for authentic detailing and shows the intricacies of construction.
