      It was delivered bent. we ordered some package and about 1/2 of them were bent out of shape, unusable. If they weren't bent out of shape they would have all been great. My daughter loves to play with the ones that we were able to contruct

          My grandson and I love flying the gliders around our home and we don't have to worry about breaking anything but the glider. The prop jobs we use outside just because they tend to need a bit more room to maneuver. I remember my grandfather bringing home a couple of these when I was young and spending hours throwing them around the yard.

                  had these planes in the early 1950s.Havn't yet seen
                  grandson playing with them.One set of the planes were not made in the usa as advertised in the catalog.I like that the catalog says "Imported".
                  It would be better if the country of origin was identified.I don't mind buying your items if they are from some countries.

                      Got these for my grandson, and don't know how he received it. Suspect he'll enjoy it greatly once he realizes what it is.
