Build the Dream,
Live the legend,
Fly your Own Fighter,

Airdrome Aeroplanes!

Fokkers, Sopwiths, Nieuports, Moranes, Dehavillands and Bleriots!

Airdrome Aeroplanes is an American Kit Aircraft Manufacturer, that offers a large selection (25+ models) of WW1 Kit Replica Aircraft for Amateur construction for both Central Powers and Allies of World War 1.

Quick and Easy to build from modern aircraft quality materials with ordinary handtools and handyman skills...remember when you built your model airplane, this is the same.

Sub kits start at $125 and Full kits at $5,500, for a 75% - 100% scale replica, driven by 45 - 100HP engine and takes bewteen 250 - 500 Hours to complete.

Start by watching this (excellent) introductory video: https://vimeo.com/32382093
Then visit their (avarage) website: http://www.airdromeaeroplanes.com/
And for the latest follow their Face Book page: https://www.facebook.com/AirdromeAeroplanes

PS: [-X For the record, I have no commercial interest in Aerodrome Airplanes. I came across them when looking for a new kit build project, found them unique and interesting enough to share, and I am seriously considering building one of their kits for my own use. [-X

Here are photos of a couple of their (25+) WW1 models:

Hi Rudi

There was a Fokker Triplane at Wonderboom +/-18 years ago, uncle Dave Mokee(spelling) use to fiddle on it but never saw it flying. Wander if it was from the same kit manufacturer and what happened to it

I would like to build myself a Triplane but think MY size will be a problem :lol:
