Little Known Facts About Mort Künstler

Bleriot 1909

...Mort Künstler painted many of the experimental aircraft of the early 1900’s?

The Bleriot 1909 monoplane was developed and flown by Louis Bleriot of France. In July 1909 he became the first pilot to fly across the English Channel, which earned him lasting fame and a prize of £1,000 - a sizeable amount at that time! This painting of the Bleriot was done for Renwal, the hobby company, as a box cover for one of their model kits.
