  Home / Model Kits / Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplane Kits / FF-47 Howard DGA-9 - FAC Dime Scale
 
Kit FF-47 Howard DGA-9 is a 1/30 scale, flying model that uses the Box and Former method of construction. This kit was designed prior to 1942 and qualifies for FAC Dime Scale and Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) competitions. Also qualifies for Flying Aces Club Dime Scale competitions.

Self-taught aircraft designer and builder, Benny Howard built the D-G-A (Damned Good Airplane) racing airplanes from 1924-43. His planes set records for speed, smallest aircraft and inverted flying. The DGA-9 was produced in 1937.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand-picked printed balsa and balsa stripwood, rubber motor, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, clear plastic for the windshield, wheels, landing gear wire, and Easy Built Lite tissue in orange. You will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.

"I enjoyed building the Howard DGA kit I purchased recently. A photo of the finished model is attached. Since it's October and the tissue is orange, I decorated the rudder on both sides like a Jack O'Lantern. I hope to take it outside this weekend for some flying. Thanks for the kit. I look forward to building another soon!" - Bill Winegardner
