Miss Science was a free flight model designed by Frank Ziac in 1939, and first appeared as an article and a series of drawings in the September 1939 edition of Popular Mechanics magazine.
We have taken Frank Ziac's original drawings and created a full size builders plan for the 72" model, to allow easy building of this gorgeous vintage model. The plan and kitset includes information and material to build functional rudder and elevator for RC.
Like our other 72" Vintage models, this would fly beautifully on a 35 to 45 four stroke, of if you're lucky enough to own a vintage engine, go for it!
And who better to model Miss Science for us than Mrs Science, Professor Palmer MB, ChB, PhD, FRACP.
- Wingspan: 72" / 1828mm - Number of channels: 3 - Recommended engine size: 35 - 45 two stroke, 54 four stroke or electric equivalent - Includes full sized rolled plan

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 $61.75.
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.
