North America's most famous World War I aircraft is the Curtiss JN-4 since it was used to train beginner pilots. The JN-4's Canadian version was the JN-4 Can, also known as "Canuck". It was built with a control stick instead of the Deperdussin control wheel used in the regular JN-4 model, and has a more rounded rudder outline than the American version. The US version was called "Jenny" and has a twin seat dual control. The tractor prop and maneuverability of the Jenny made it ideal for initial pilot training. Most JN-4s built were unarmed, though some had machine guns and bomb racks for advanced training.

After World War I, hundred JN-4s were sold in the civilian market, including the ones sold to Charles Lindbergh as his first aircraft. The Low speed of the JN-4 made it ideal for stunt flying and aerobatic displays. In the 1930s, some JN-4s were still operational. The primary users of the JN-4 were the United States Army Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps.

Working from exact aircraft blueprints, the majority of these beautiful replica models are hand sculptured by master craftsmen who use premium treated Philippine mahogany wood. Each model passes through several stages of sanding and priming before talented artists apply paint and detail. Extreme care is made to apply historically accurate aircraft markings and emblems.
