The pilot figure was a fairly good piece of work moulding wise.
Gives the impression that the Flyer, while just post turn of the century built,
was not a small aircraft by any means.
in the build of this model one thing became clear, great care had
to be taken as soon as the wings were covered.
With all the metalwork and wood strip, it would
have been an easy job to punch a hole in the covering.
The kit didn't exactly supply an abundance of extra material so a mistake
at this stage would have been very bad news indeed.
