The flying star

Model Airplanes

A model airplane is a small version of a normal airplane. Some model airplanes are toys but some are not because they are too expensive. My grandpa has around 20-30 model airplanes hanging from the ceiling in his work shop. He used to build model airplanes all the time when he was a kid. And he still does it at 81 years old.
