Spirit of St.

Louis : Pattern

Spirit of St. Louis
The Spirit of St. Louis (also known as the Ryan NYP-1) is a single-engine plane that was successfully flown by Charles Lindbergh as a solo non-stop transatlantic flight. The main external features of the craft were its lack of front windshield, and its wings, which were extremely long compared to its body. The aircraft took off from New York's Long Island and flew 5,810km to Paris. The journey took 33 hours, 29 minutes and 29.8 seconds, which was regarded as quite fast at the time. It was the first solo, non-stop flight to travel this route. This papercraft Spirit of St. Louis is about one twenty eighth the size of the real Spirit of St. Louis. *This model was designed for Papercraft and may differ from the original in some respects.

Parts list (Pattern) : Seven A4 sheets No. of Parts: 177
