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 is 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.
