Crow Model Plane
I swear I used to buy two or three balsa-wood planes a week, wind 'em up an let 'em fly around and around and around the open spaces near my grandparents' house. And here's a design that was one of the first ever. And when I say ever, I mean ever. "The Crow design was the first such model plane to ever be built and flown in Japan. It dates from 1889, when its inventor based his model on the crow's wing span after studying them in flight. The propeller is a push - so its on the back!" Cool beans? Beans are cool.
