Scalecraft Price:: $169.00
Item Number: 9063
Designed by Mr. R.B.C. Noorduyn, the design incorporated the specific requests and suggestions of Canadian "bush" pilots and good performance on wheels, floats and skis was considered a prerequisite.

First flown in 1935, the type gained rapid acceptance. At the outbreak of war, the RCAF placed orders, which eventually totalled 99 aircraft of various models. The US government was however, by far the largest customer, purchasing over 800 Norseman for military use. The utility of the design ensured it's post-war use. The last RCAF example was retired in 1957 although numerous civilian examples soldiered on long after this date.

Mahogany Wood. Scale: 1/30. Wingspan 22 inches, Length 14 inches.
