America’s Most Famous WW1 Biplane! 

1:16 SCALE STRUCTURAL STATIC MODEL WITH LASER CUT WOODEN PARTS

The Curtiss Jenny combined the best features of the Curtiss J and N models. The JN-3 of 1915 was modified and re-designated as the JN-4 in 1916. With America’s entry into WWI, the Signal Corps ordered large quantities of JN-4s. By the time production stopped after the Armistice, more than 6,000 had been delivered, the majority of them JN-4D.

Powered by a Curtiss OX-5 in-line V8 water-cooled engine and manned by a crew of two, the Jenny flew at 75 mph. She had an endurance of 2.5 hours and climbed to 2,000 feet in 10 minutes. The aircraft had a 43 ft. 7 inch wingspan and weighed 1,430 lbs.

The Jenny was most often used for basic flight training. Many were equipped with machine guns and bomb racks for advanced training. After the war, hundreds were sold on the civilian market and the airplane became the mainstay of the “Barnstormer” of the 1920s. Some were still being flown in the 1930s. Restored Jenny aircraft can be seen in many museums, including the Smithsonian Institution’s Garber Preservation Facility in Suitland, MD.
