Delivery Delays Due To COVID19 Lockdown

To help reduce the spread of COVID19, New Zealand is currently in full lockdown.

While we are still producing kits for orders, the lockdown has introduced delays in the collection of our outgoing freight. You are welcome to place your order, and we will complete your kit, however at this stage there will likely be a 2 to 4 week delay in your kitset shipping out.

Freight facilities are continually changing, and we will update you as soon as we have more news. Our freight company always supplies an exemplary service, and we are sure they will be back to full capacity as soon as they can.

Tiger Tail 64" 60 Size Classic Pattern Ship

Another classic pattern ship, the Tiger Tail was originally designed by Ron Chidgey, and was a two times US Nationals winner!

The original Tiger Tail plan was drawn around a foam core wing. We have re-engineered the wing into a built up balsa wing that anyone can construct with standard tools, and drawn a new plan to compliment the built up wing.

Southerner 60" 30 Size

Originally produced by Keil Kraft, The Free Flight Southerner was first drawn up in early 1947, but it wasn't until the Mills 2.4 Diesel became popular that the design was revised and updated in 1949.

The wing can be built in a dihedral or polyhedral format. We have modified the original Free Flight design and included in our kitset an additional plan and laser cut parts for a new tailplane with elevators, and fin and rudder for RC use.

The LS-1 60" Slope Soarer

The LS-1 is  60" Slope Soarer was designed by the La Sierra Slope Soarers flying club in Riverside, California, in the 1990's. So the story goes, that during a club meeting, one member suggested the club should have it's own glider, something indigenous to their club and hill.

The idea was to keep it simple, and low cost. Something easily built, which doesn't sacrifice performance. Able to perform aerobatics for the seasoned pilot, but be stable enough for beginner aileron pilots.

Testimonials

Hi Pete. Thanks for your prompt attention to my kitset order, it arrived without a mark on it. The laser cutting is the best I've seen, even better than the SIG kit sets I have. I will pass the word around our club over here.

John Grant, New Zealand

Hi Pete. I have finished the Buzzard Bombshell from your semi kit. The accuracy of parts  along with extra strip wood were of top quality. Have finished model in Solarfilm, powered by a Scorpion electric motor, came out all up at 4lbs. 8ozs. Test flew yesterday with only down thrust needed. A great project and a worthy addition to my vintage stable.

Harvey Stiver, New Zealand

Hi Pete. The Slingsby kit has just landed (pun intended). I haven’t had the chance to unpack the laser cut parts yet but going by Darryl’s comments they will fit like a glove. Also the plans are the best I have seen in a long time and I have been modelling for more than 50 years!!
