Regular price $316.50 Sale

Another classic pattern ship, the Deception 63" 60 size was originally designed in 1978 by Jim Kimbro, and later kitted by Bridi Hobby Enterprises. 

To quote the designer, "Don't let its smooth, even lines, its quiet on-field demeanour deceive you or lull you into a false sense of security, as the Deception in the right hands is an all-out pattern competitor that can do it all for you at any contest. It's a real winner."

The original Deception 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 wing plan to compliment the built up wing. Our kitset also includes a 1.5mm White HIPS Canopy.

Short Kit Or Complete Airframe Kit?

A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build.

Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.

Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.

With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.

A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.

Select this option when adding to your cart to purchase all of the materials required to complete the airframe build.

Every kit includes a full size printed plan, and where available the designers original construction notes. The kits do not include miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, control horns, hinges, wheels etc.
