WE SUPPOSE it is true to say that Leo Valentin, the French birdman leads a somewhat up and down existence. Up in an aeroplane and then down on his wooden wings and a parachute or two. It is also true that such a game needs courage of a very high order, and there must be many of us who would go a long way in order to see this intrepid son of France do his stuff. However, there may be few opportunities of seeing an actual demonstration by Leo himself. But here is a model of him, which when you see it soaring around in the blue, will not only give you a very true impression of Leo himself on the wing, but will also intrigue you by its flying ability. Be the first in your group to fiy a "Leo Valentin", He's an eye-catcher believe us. Even fuel-soaked digit-twisted, power bods have been known to look up with interest when Leo was above them, cheerily breasting the upper air!
Just cut out, paint and fly!
There is no sense in telling you how to build him. He's too easy for the old "sheet of instructions" lark. Just cut him out of sheet, adding the hardwood block, drilled ready for the screws of the Jetex 50 clip. Cut out his wings slip them through the slot and cement. Add the wing tips, balance by modelling plasticine onto his helmet .......
