Description

This is an injection-plastic airliner model kit.

This kit from Avis is a new mold! The Skycar is a small airplane designed and developed by the Ford Motor Company designer William Bushnell Stout, who also developed the famous Ford Trimotor. The Skycar was designed to answer the need for a small personal aircraft that was as easy to maneuver as a car. The Skycar I was completed in 1931, and was used for several years as a private plane by Stout himself. The Skycar II was completed in 1941; it had a stainless steel body and four-wheel landing gear, and was essentially a powered-up version of the Skycar I. It was tested by the U.S. Army Air Force as the XC-65 transport aircraft. The Skycar III was made in 1943 and the Skycar IV in 1944, but neither was mass-produced and only one prototype of each was made.
