Balsa & Tissue covered kit for the experienced builder
Balsa / tissue covered kit, requires other items to finish.
Aerographics kits have earned a well deserved reputation for quality and authenticity. These are definitely not toys; they are miniature aircraft that fly superbly well and give considerable satisfaction during construction. Most of the skills required for model aircraft construction and flying can be learnt from these kits and when well made they provide a considerable source of pride.
The range is varied; most being rubber powered with the option to fit electric motors, or compressed carbon dioxide motors, (CO2). The Komet Lightning & Bell XS-1 can be flown as catapult gliders or they can be powered by a Jet-X 50 motor or similar.
