Morane Saulnier MS.406 History:
The Morane Saulnier MS.406 is a French fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by Morane Saulnier, starting in 1938. It was France’s most numerous fighter during the Second World War and one of only two French designs to exceed 1,000 in number. At the beginning of the war, it was one of only two French-built aircraft capable of 400 km/h (250 mph,) the other being the Potez 630.
In response to a requirement for a fighter issued by the French Air Force in 1934, Morane-Saulnier built a prototype, designated MS.405, of mixed materials. This had the distinction of being the company’s first low-wing monoplane, as well as the first to feature an enclosed cockpit, and the first design with a retracting undercarriage. The entry to service of the M.S.406 to the French Air Force in early 1939 represented the first modern fighter aircraft to be adopted by the service. Although a sturdy and highly manoeuvrable fighter aircraft, it was considered underpowered and weakly armed when compared to its contemporaries and the M.S.406 was outperformed by the Messerschmitt Bf 109E during the Battle of France.

Are COBI Sets appropriate for children?
COBI Brick Sets are great for children and adults but you should be aware that younger children will need help with larger sets due to the huge number of parts and layered building style. We always encourage trying out one of the 1:48 scale tank sets to start out as they are smaller and are a great way to test the legendary COBI Brick quality.

How COBI Pre-Orders work:
COBI Bricks are made in Europe and are shipped via shipping container to the east coast. We have no control over when they arrive as that is handled by COBI’s USA office. We do get approximate lead times and we make sets available for pre-order approximately 1-2 months before the sets are expected to arrive. COBI sets do sometimes get delayed for various reasons but we do make a huge effort to ship out all pre-orders as soon as they arrive at our home business.
Shipping costs are very high for us due to the size of COBI boxes and the wight of the sets, so if you order multiple sets we typically send them out together and will set them aside until the pre-order set comes in. We encourage customers to make separate orders if they want the in stock sets to arrive before a pre-order set.
