Planes: Complete History
Nothing seems to capture the imagination of humankind quite like the ability to fly, and just over a hundred years ago, that dream became a reality. Over the last century, planes have progressed in ways that would astound their earliest makers, and flying machines continue to inspire wonder in passengers and viewers alike. Now Planes: A Complete History offers an exciting look at the most exemplary representations of innovation in aviation history in a fun and interactive two-part book. With 50 press-out models of historic and contemporary aircraft and a detachable history book that outlines the planes that represented exciting "firsts" in the field those that best represent the technology of their era and those that pushed the boundaries of what was possible this book both instructs and entertains. Most importantly, it leaves the airplane enthusiast with a virtual hangar of model planes.
A novel series of hands-on books for machine lovers! Each book contains 50 cardstock models to assemble. The top portion of each page features a historical overview and some highlights of the machine to construct, while the lower section contains the full color, punch-out pieces. A section in the back of each book has detailed assembly instructions for each model. Craft glue is required for all the models, and some younger builders may need a helping hand when trying to fit pieces together. The hours of model-building fun in each books will result in some very attractive little machines about 5-6 inches in length. - Zach
