The model of an aircraft I built is widely regarded as one of the most important aeroplanes ever for making the first flight across the English Channel. This aircraft was piloted by its constructor, a French engineer Louis Blériot on 25th July 1909, when it flew the distance of 35 kilometres from a French town of Les Barraques to Dover in the UK, in just 40 minutes.
This model has a great potential to grab the attention of people passionate about aviation and history.
If you find this model interesting and want to see it in stores, please share it on Facebook, Twitter and other social media. 10,000 votes will get it onto the shelves.
The model consists of the aircraft Bleriot XI, a base with the flight path across the English Channel, and a Louis Blériot’s minifigure.
