This model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration, there is no option for a landing gear. It is mostly made of metal with plastic parts. There are no moving parts in this model. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.

 

Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).

 

The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. 

 

The Wright Flyer (often retrospectively referred to as Flyer I or 1903 Flyer) was the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft. It was designed and built by the Wright brothers. They flew it four times on December 17, 1903, near Kill Devil Hills, about four miles (6.4 km) south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Today, the airplane is exhibited in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. The U.S. Smithsonian Institution describes the aircraft as "the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard." The flight of Flyer I marks the beginning of the "pioneer era" of aviation.
