Designed in 1936 by Frank Zaic, the Miss America was one of the premier flyers of it's day. Our kit includes a full scale plan re-drawn from Frank's original plan and notes, and we have included an extra plan page and all of the components to allow an easy RC conversion adding rudder & elevators.

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 $89.95.
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.
