Serious Fun: A Grownup’s Model Airplanes

Serious Fun: A Grownup’s Model Airplanes

Denver pilot and model-maker Fritz Howard built large-scale model aircraft of exquisite detail and realism. Flight control surfaces operate from the stick and rudder pedals in the cockpit, landing gear retracts or extends using a tiny crank in the cockpit, and cowlings open to reveal minutely detailed engines! Many of his models are displayed in the world’s top aerospace museums, but Wings Over the Rockies has the largest collection in the world of Fritz Howard models.
