The Authentic Models Transparent Spad Airplane is an impressive replica of one of the best flying aircraft to see action during WWI. One of the most mass produced planes of the time, this fast biplane was challenging to maneuver at low speeds. Only the best pilots, like US flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker, could truly realize this plane's potential. This transparent model makes for an interesting addition to your plane collection by allowing you to see and appreciate the interior construction. Detailed engine covers, hand fitted spoke wheels, and laminated rotating wood propellers create a sturdy yet intricate piece. Some minor assembly is required.
