Another iconic Australian aircraft returns from a 1960's design by George Hahn, with our Laser Cut Short Kit of the Victa Airtourer 115.
To quote the designer, "If you want a full scale model that flies just the way you wished all your planes would fly, this is it! The plane grooves so nicely I have been putting off a temptation to build a duplicate or two for my everyday flying. Try one and see if you agree."
The original plan shows a foam core wing, but we have re-drawn the wing plan sheet and included conventional ribs & spars for a lighter and strong wing.
Note that the kit does not include a vacuum formed canopy, but the designer offers some instructions on how to form your own canopy.
- Wingspan: 58" / 1473mm - Number of channels: 5 - Recommended engine size: 60 two stroke, 75 four stroke or electric equivalent - Includes full sized rolled plan and the original construction article

We are happy to make up a complete wood kit for you, including all of the additional materials listed. Additional wood pack cost for this kit is NZ $194.70
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. The CAD design and laser cutting was done by Master Modeller Gwyn Avenell in Auckland.
* 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.
