Experience flight as it was in the early years of aviation
by flying or displaying your very own vintage model aircraft.
Whether you are an RC pilot, a collector, an aviation
fan or just really like and
enjoy the large sized scale replica model aircraft, these models
are made for you and sure
We realize that your favorite aircraft
might not be one of the more commonly available ones, that it might be too difficult to
reproduce, or, like so many of us today, you just can't find the time or are not as
willing to devote those hundreds of hours to another building project. These models are
designed to fill the gap between those long construction times and the airfield.
Our models come ready-built, covered and painted (ARF) & complete with all
hardware less engine, fuel tank and electronics. Included in these kits are a dummy engine
(except the F2B), static display prop, standard solid wheels (Bleriot comes with wire
spoked wheels), and a manual with documentation.
Assembly times vary with experience, but usually 12 to 15 hours will be required
to fully complete your model to flying status, while you can prepare one for display in
just thirty minutes to an hour.
Solar Tex, a heat shrinkable
covering material made in England, is used
on all our models and readily available Dutch Boy enamels are the applied paints. Being
true replicas and like their larger cousins, all of our current monoplanes use active wing
warping while the B1 planes use ailerons. The wing warping controls are very smooth, but
are usually a little less responsive than ailerons are at the slower speeds.
Depending on the particular model, these aircraft will except engines from a .46
two stroke to a 1.20 four stroke and most are adaptable to electric power, as well.
Try one of these unique vintage aircraft to experience and enjoy
flight as it was in the those fledging years of aviation history.
