Although the original manufacturer of the Aeronca Champion sold their business, their successor the Champion Aircraft Corp. produced many of this widely known personal airplane. Aeronca’s have been a common site on American airports for many years and rival the Piper Cub’s for popularity. Guillow’s scale model of the Champion 85 is designed to faithfully duplicate the many fine characteristics of this flyer.
These popular private planes are still in use today by many private pilots. Whether built for scale or contest flying, the balsa wood airplanes in this series represent the finest in design and flight capability. Each can be flown using either the rubber motor included in the kit or converted to gas engine or electric motor (instructions for using electric power supplied in kits).
Quality scale balsa model airplane kits. These model construction kits have scale realism for the super detail fan and light weight for those who build and fly. Each model is a small but faithful replica of an airplane widely known for deeds in wartime or present day popularity.
