project will provide you hours of excitement and fun not only because it

The wings can be detached for transportation and storage.
The plans shows the parts dimensions and with the help of perspective and
exploded views drawings, the builder can quickly understand, almost at a
glance, how the parts have to be constructed and assembled.
