THIS KIT IS A REISSUE OF A PREVIOUS ECARDMODELS.COM LISTING
The RWD 8 was a Polish parasol wing monoplane trainer aircraft produced by RWD. The first prototype (registration SP-AKL), was flown in early 1933. It was considered a very stable and well-handling aircraft. In total, over 550 RWD 8s were built (about 80 by DWL and about 470 by PWS). Production ceased in early 1939. A total of 57 aircraft were withdrawn to Romania, about 40 to Latvia and 2 to Hungary. Only some dozen aircraft were captured by the Germans in airworthy condition. In Romania and Hungary they were used until the late 1940s.
