Another classic which started out life as a free flight model in the 1930's, from famous vintage designer Chester Lanzo, we are pleased to produce the 96" Lanzo Bomber Laser Cut Short Kit.
The Lanzo Bomber just about has to be tied down to stop it flying! It will stooge around the sky and thermal with the best of them!
Originally designed for free flight, we have modified the construction of the rudder and tailplane in our kit to allow for easy hinging of control surfaces for simple conversion to RC.
Also included is an MDF Fuselage Jig to simplify construction of the fuselage, allowing you to easily create a strong and straight airframe.
The plan has details on building the original 96" version, or reducing it down to about an 85% version using the same kit pieces, so it's a very versatile kitset.
- Wingspan: 96" / 2438mm - Number of channels: 3 or Free Flight - Recommended engine size: 60 two stroke, 75 four stroke or electric equivalent - Includes full sized rolled plan
Materials Required For Completion:
- 1.5 x 6.5 x 915 Balsa Sticks x 2 - 3.0 x 6.5 x 915 Balsa Sticks x 25 - 6.5 x 6.5 x 915 Balsa Sticks x 6 - 6.5 x 6.5 x 1220 Balsa Sticks x 4 - 6.5 x 19 x 915 Balsa Sticks x 4 - 12.5 x 12.5 x 915 Balsa Sticks x 4 - 3.0 x 6.5 x 915 Spruce Sticks x 4
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 $98.40
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.
