Building Plane Models

I purchased Planes: A complete history from the Pacific Air Museum yesterday. Ethan really enjoyed the visit since we try to go each year.

Planes Model Set

So far we constructed two out of the 50 models. This is not easy, I would say intermediate skills required, not for young children without assistance. Although the instructions are somewhat questionable, overall, it is doable. The numbers don’t always match up but if you’ve built models before, then your used to it by now.

The paper models turned out great! I have uploaded a photo in the book gallery section. We chose not to use Elmer’s glue and went with Titebond 3 ultimate wood glue so that it sets permanently. Although the paper is sturdier card stock, I would have preferred a laminate type finish for longer lifespan.

Overall, Planes: A complete history is a well written/drawn model history book that we will continue to build 3D models and collect them all.
