Rutan Voyager

Here is the record setting Voyager, designed by Burt Rutan, built by Scaled Composites co., flown by Jeana Yeager and Dick Rutan.
Very good kit by Aaron, easy to build no fit problems. Built mine in-flight configuration with front engine shut down and prop feathered (flew a large part of record flight with front engine shut down). This thing is big (1/30scale) 44" wingspan and 14' long. Thanks Aaron for a great kit of a record setting plane! Voyager now hangs in the Smithsonian museum in DC, went there a few years back and could just reach up and touch the wing..........Rich

Fantastic build. The clear glass and spinning prop real adds to the finish.
