Homebuilt hero!

The Smith Miniplane is the design that started the modern homebuilding era. Designed and built in 1957 by Frank Smith, Miniplanes were designed with homebuilders and weekend pilots in mind. It could be constructed with tools easily within reach of the average craftsman, and in the air it was stable and easy to fly; just what many sportsman pilots were looking for! Now you can build your own Smith Miniplane with this kit!
