Flying models aircraft can be divided into three groups: the free flight, control line and radio controlled. The three types of aircraft models are available in various sizes and scales, but majority is made from plastic material. They have one or two battery or gas powered engines. You can find many kits to build the particular models.

Among others, plastic model aircraft are easy to build and is considered as a good learning option for beginners. This type of model is controlled by an external device and not capable of flying at high speed, but is designed to be stable. They are strong and can last longer. If you want to collect the best one, you can read the list below:
InAir E-Z Build Model Kit – Sopwith Camel F.1
This is realistic molded plastic models that have 8.5 to 11 inches long. Offered in fine detail includes color markings and retractable landing gear. All kits that is required for assembly is included and there are easy to build in about 5 minutes.
InAir E-Z Build Model Kit is ideal for young collectors, not top notch, but it is a very nice kit. The diagram of how to build is presented in black white color, so you might have some difficulties to read it. The pieces have problems snapping together, but the screws have high quality and fit into the overall design. Usually, plastic model aircraft has some balancing trouble of standing. But, with this model, you just need side-to-side a bit to find its comfortable position.
If you’re wondering how to assembly the pieces together, there are 11 screws and grooves, where all the pieces are supposed to stick well. There is no glue so there is no mess around. The kit comes with all the supplies you need, such as a screwdriver, screws and everything else you need to build it
Revell 1:48 P38J Lightning
This plane is a very fun model to build; you can build three different versions: the night fighter, fighter bomber and path finder that looks very beautiful when it’s done.
The models have 115 silver styrene parts that divided into seven sprues, and three parts of canopy and landing lights. The sprues are not individually wrapped so you may find some scratches caused by friction between them. The material is made from soft plastic, typical of Revell. The molds indicate their age, because you’ll find lots of flash. Almost all rooms have at least one pin of ejection marks, and in some cases will visible when the building is finished.
Plastic model aircraft have a number of handy plastic kits in the market. It is important for you to choose suitable kits that made from plastic either. You need to use right kits and learn how to a model properly
Flying model aircraft are used for many purposes. They are used as a marketing tool for airlines. You may notice many models of popular airlines in travel agency offices. Aircraft models are also used for flying research and aerodynamic modeling. The building model is the popular models among people of all age because it has thrill sensation when building. Aircraft models can be made from different materials such as metal, wood, paper and plastics. Plastic model aircraft are generally more popular because they are inexpensive and available in both static and flying models.
