Slingsby T-53B 111" Glider

When the Slingsby factory in Great Britain decided to move away from wooden construction, the aluminium T-53 was developed. It features two fixed tandem wheels and a very obvious swept forward wing.

The Slingsby T-53B was a minor modification of the Slingsby T-53 two seat tandem trainer, and was used by the RAF for Air Cadet training.

Ridge Runner 72" Slope Soarer

Do you feel the need for speed on the slope?! Well the 72" Ridge Runner could be just what you need.

Designed in the early 1970's for slope aerobatic and pylon race events, the Ridge Runner placed in the finals of the 1973 and 1974 RCM Trophy Races, and it was the most popular slope soarer entry.

The Ridge Runner provides crisp control authority, and aerobatic capabilities to keep a pattern flyer interested.

The Super Sinbad Is Now A 2 Channel 93" Wingspan Glider

We have taken those gorgeous, classic lines of the Super Sinbad and scaled it up to a 93" 2 channel glider for slope or bungee launch.

The body is built in two halves using an arrangement of formers, allowing you to keep that open structure but still build an accurate fuselage. The two piece wing uses the original aerofoil and is joined through a strong centre spar box with a 3mm laser cut steel wing joiner.

The Heron Featuring Classic Lines From The 1970's Scaled Up To 142" Wingspan

Drawing on the classic lines of Dave Thornburg's Bird Of Time from the 1970's, we have scaled up those timeless curves and re-engineered this into a 142" / 3.6 metre classic glider.

So now you can re-live the Golden Years of RC Sailplanes in an easy building modern kitset. The design features an interlocking fuselage for straightforward and accurate construction and our own completely re-drawn full size plan.

Classic Pattern Kwik Fli III By Phil Kraft

Another classic from designer Phil Kraft, the Kwik Fli III was the third generation in the Kwik Fli line, and was the 1967's Nationals and International winner.

The concept of the Kwik Fli Series was to design an aircraft that was a basic and simple approach to a competition aircraft, producing a simple and capable aircraft which, to quote the designer "grooves through manoeuvres".

Stylus Hand Launch Or Bungee Launch 40" Glider

Designed by Carl Dowdy in the late 1980's, the Stylus features a very light construction, Eppler airfoil, and increased wing cord, resulting in a small glider that is a delight to fly, and a joy to thermal in even the lightest of lift.

The Stylus is a complete wood kit, so all wood components are included to complete the build.

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.

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.

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!!
