This Curtiss Robin kit is a 1:33 scale flying model. Its pre-1942 design is eligible for Flying Aces Club Dime Scale and Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests. Curtiss Airplane produced the popular Curtiss Robin mail plane until 1932. Douglas ‘Wrong-Way‘ Corrigan flew the Curtiss Robin J-1 Special airplane in 1943. He wanted permission to fly nonstop from NY to Ireland but was refused. Instead he got ‘lost‘ after leaving NY and ended up in Ireland.
