New Addition: Models of Bill Kleinhans

AMA #101 graces the wing of this Bunch Stratosphere built by Bill Kleinhans.  A modeler from the age of 12, Bill was lucky enough to be assigned the first AMA open number in 1938 and he maintained the number until his death in 2010.  The Stratosphere, as well as a RC Lincoln Sport, both of which were built by Bill in the 1990s, were recently donated to the museum in memory of Bill Kleinhans by Fred Williams.

The bright yellow of the RC Lincoln Sport certainly makes it stand out. The Bunch Stratosphere is a 1930s FF model with a round fuselage and gull wing.

Thanks, Fred, for helping to grow the museum’s collection!
