Notes:
"Arcadian gliders consists of a boxed set of nine cardboard model airplanes in kit form. Each airplane has been embellished with an authentic military decal and the name of an appropriate garden feature has been printed on the rear wing. When the airplanes have been constructed, they may either be displayed together as a squadron or, if you have access to a garden, they should be carefully placed in the relevant spot to act as markers or name tags and a pleasing focus of interest for when the flowers are out of season."--Page [3] of instruction booklet.
