Product Details


The Curtiss Jenny acquired its name from the earlier J and N model trainers, which were the bases for its design. The Curtiss JN was built to serve the US Armed Forces with the first unit rolling out of the factories in 1915. Though the aircraft series was well-received, the earlier variants faced a lot of problems. This is especially true for the JN-2 which was deficient in terms of performance because of its weight. As such, the succeeding variants aimed to address these concerns bit by bit. The JN-4, in particular, was the variant that spearheaded the seriesŐ success. It was a twin-seat biplane powered by a 90hp Curtiss OX-5 V8 engine. It had a maximum speed of 75mph and a ceiling of 6,500ft. When the Curtiss JN4 entered military service, it arguably became the most famous World War I aircraft.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
