From legendary British scale designer Dennis Tapsfield comes his 91" 60 size Spacewalker. The model handles well on a 60 size two stroke or electric equivalent, and with scale trimmings and colour scheme is a real crowd pleaser.
The model can be flown slowly, yet on full power is surprisingly fast and manoeuvrable. Loops, rolls & inverted flight are well within it's capabilities, and slow landings are the rule.
We have also included a laser cut windscreen and a series of MDF jigs with the kit to aid in accurate construction of some of the curved surfaces.
- Wingspan: 91" / 2311mm - Number of channels: 4 - Recommended engine size: 60 two stroke, 75 four stroke or electric equivalent - Includes full sized rolled plan and the original construction article

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.
