A New Zealand agricultural icon returns! It's been a long time since the Fletcher Fu-24 has been seen around NZ & Australian flying fields, so we have spent hundreds of hours on our brand new development of this iconic NZ aircraft.
Working from full-size drawings and consulting with Fletcher experts we are very proud to present our 84" 120 size Fletcher Fu-24.
The airframe is built up from balsa and ply, and fully sheeted, ready for the finishing of your choice.
This Fletcher Fu-24 is not a beginners kit, you would need to have some previous kit building experience. For example, the scale flaps and all-moving tailplane require some woodworking skills.

We can package up a complete wood kit including all of the materials in the required list for an additional NZ $375.50)
The laser cut short kits include all of the shaped parts in balsa and ply which would normally require the builder to cut them from sheets. Items such as formers, wing ribs and other shaped pieces are all precisely laser cut. This leaves you to purchase only the sticks, spruce or balsa sheets you need to complete the kit, some of which you may already have on-hand.
All kits are proudly made in NZ! We hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea and European Plywoods.
* Note that the picture of the complete aircraft is indicative of it's completed appearance. The kitset requires building and supply of all finishing materials & hardware.
