6615 Picture yourself in the pilot's seat. Swooping low over corn fields, looping the loop (better put breakfast on hold), and overall barnstorming to beat the band! It's not just a job, it's a .... hey, they shouldn't even call it work. The sky's the limit behind the controls of the Eagle Stunt Flyer!

Here's one of those unnecessary reviews. If you are a plane fanatic, you've already picked the set up, and if you really don't care one way or the other, then it will never enter your collection.
I haven't collected town regularly for quite a while but I did pick up the 6345-Aerial Acrobats a couple of years ago for the very reason of having the stunt planes (one mono and one biplane). As soon as I saw this biplane in red (6345's biplane is white), I knew I had to pick it up as a complement to the other set.
This is a great set! It isn't too expensive but you get some good plane parts, and pictures on the box show some decent alternate sets you can make (though I haven't tried them yet).
The kit is basically a biplane and fig set but unique parts include two chrome exhaust pipes, propeller unit (including a red 4x4 round casing piece), red 8-stud-length rear-wing plate and a tail fin (this came with diving eagle decals but I put mine on the propeller casing instead), four red 9-length wing plates, interesting 4x4 "H" brick (two 1x4 horizontally tapering sides of a 2x2 center piece) for the body, and two red 2x3x2 elevator/strut pieces. I also like the way they use sets of four grey 1x1 flat rounds on each wheel unit to look like springs/shocks.
This is a swoosher set all the way. Again, if you were ever going to get this, you already have it. But even if you aren't a plane lover, I seriously suggest taking a close look at the set, it isn't going to break your piggy bank and it might just turn you into a flight fanatic!
