Check out the new section for Full Kits of Small Flying Scale and small Gliders from the old days
THESE MODELS ARE REPRODUCTIONS OF THE ORIGINAL KITS MOST OF WHICH HAVE BEEN OUT OF
PRODUCTION FOR DECADES FROM THE OLD MANUFACTURES AND SOME OF THEM HAVE SMALL DETAIL
CHANGES BUT THEY ARE CONSTRUCTED IN THE SAME WAY AS YOU REMEMBER AND GIVE JUST AS MUCH
SATISFACTION TO THE BUILDER
More will be added over the coming weeks
See the new bigger SUPERSIZE short kits
Remember the days when all youngsters built and flew the old balsa and tissue model aircraft on the local field. Now you can continue the fun.
All of our kits are constructed using the traditional methods of "sticks and tissue" and are based on models that have been out of production for decades.
This method of cutting out the fuselage formers and wing ribs before joining with balsa stripwood to form a basic framework, then covering with tissue paper,
followed by dope shrinking is an easy way to give strength and durability to the completed model.
Browse the available designs, choose the one you remember or just build the one that takes your fancy.
They are all relatively easy to build by just following the comprehensive instructions shown on the full sized plan.
