German Pre-World War I Observation Aircraft

The Original! Our smaller Taube Kit has probably introduced more builders into World War I aero modeling than any other single kit. And why not, where else can you find a sport scale model of a unique early aircraft at such a great price? Now it is even better. Our completely revised kit is easier and faster to build. The 22 page instruction manual has over 90 photos to guide you through every step of the assembly. Nothing is left to the imagination. The Taube is a gentle flyer that anyone who has successfully flown an R/C trainer can handle easily. Construction is straight forward and no special tools or jigs are required. The kit features jig cut parts and precision die cut parts to speed up and simplify construction. Rolled full size plans, pre-bent gear wires, and a complete hardware package are also included. If you are looking for a very unique model that flies great, is easy to build, and really stands out at the field - look no further, this Taube's for you! The perfect 3 channel Sunday Flyer.
