Thankfully, there are some fun, functional model planes that are ridiculously inexpensive. So affordable in fact that if you happen to break them, replacing the model altogether will only cost a few dollars. (And you know as well as I do that kids can be rough on their playthings! Or is that just MY kids?)
Anyway, Guillow's has been making simple yet challenging model kits for almost 88 years now. Today Guillow's is beloved by Grandpops as well as kids who may be technically savvy but still enjoy the simple beauty of building then flying a balsa wood toy plane. There are six new miniModels in the 4500 series, and for this iGeneration, building help is now available as a bonus online in 3D models that you can spring, turn and control with your mouse, plus how-to-assemble video on Youtube!
The 4500 Series starts with the U.S. Hellcat or U.S. Warhawk each with red propellers. The handsome German Fighter has distinctive black markings on its wingtips while the American war models sport patriotic blue. The non-military Rockstar Jet, V-Tail and Stunt Flyer round out the six miniModels. An affordable price of $8.99 is the cherry on top of this wonderful classic toy sundae. These are designed for a child 13 years old and up to assemble themselves, or a little younger child with an adult’s help.
