:-) I don't think that there is a 1/72 scale kit of the Wright Flyer. I would like to see a 1/48 kit. Others will know better than me, as I don't keep track of that sort of thing, but I believe that there as only been one model of the Flyer, in some odd scale. We've come a long way in 100 years :-)

There was one done in 72nd many years ago by Renewal. Came with a form of tissue to cover the wings with as the wings are bare. You can at times get this kit on Ebay..
