Stevens Aero Micro Models - The Great Race

Cartoon themed model airplane kits based on the "Great Race of 1912" (also inspired by "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines").


Stevens Aero 1909 Demoiselle (Toon)

The Stevens Aero 1909 Demoiselle UM is very loosely based on the series of full-size aircraft, designed and built by pioneering Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont from 1906 to 1910. Santos-Dumont was credited with the first heavier-than-air powered flight in Europe when he flew his Model 14bis in front of a large crowd of people on the 23rd of October, 1906.

The Demoiselle is considered to be the world’s first true ultra-light aircraft. It was flown in France regularly, as well as giving demonstration flights at Belmont Park, New York, by none other than Roland Garros. Garros would later go on to become one of France’s first flying aces in World War I. Plans to build the Demoiselle were available from the aviation press in Europe, and a set of plans was featured for the aviation enthusiast in “Popular Mechanics” magazine in North America.

The Stevens Aero version of the famous Demoiselle is definitely a ToonScale version of this iconic aircraft and is in no way intended to be a scale replica. Inspiration for the Demoiselle, and the rest of Stevens Aero “Great Race” series of models, came from the quirkiness, graceful beauty, and the sometimes “what were they thinking?” designs of early aviation. . . along with a huge dose of the classic aviation film “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”.

The kit includes:

  • Precision laser cut parts
  • Full size detail sheets with markings template
  • Photo illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions
  • Hardware package including push-rods, control horns, struts, receiver clip, pre-cut acetate wind screen and wheels.

Stevens Aero 1911-1/2 Nieuport (Toon)

The ToonScale 1911-1/2 Nieuport UM is the second in the Great Race! series of micro model aircraft kits from Stevens AeroModel. Unlike the previous Demoiselle, the Nieuport did not see action in the 1965 movie “Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines”. The Nieuport did, however, see plenty of action in air races of the period that the classic movie was based on.

The Stevens Aero version of the famous Nieuport is definitely a ToonScale version of this iconic aircraft and is in no way intended to be a scale replica. Inspiration for the Nieuport, and the rest of Stevens Aero “Great Race” series of models, came from the quirkiness, graceful beauty, and the sometimes “what were they thinking?” designs of early aviation. . . along with a huge dose of the classic aviation film “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”.

The kit includes:

  • Precision laser cut parts
  • Full size detail sheets with markings template
  • Photo illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions
  • Hardware package including push-rods, control horns, struts, receiver engine details, and spoked wheels.
