Whether you’re new to model building or an old hand, we have a kit to delight and entertain you. Model kits make great presents – not just because they look great when they’re finished but because they offer the recipient hours of enjoyment, the ability to learn new skills and the sense of achievement when the model’s complete.
Based on a KeilKraft model from the 1960’s, this Spitfire balsa wood kit will produce either a fabulous bare-bones static display model or when covered with tissue, a rubber-powered free-flight model you can actually fly! With a wingspan of 18″(450mm) your finished model will be big enough to handle with ease and yet small enough to display with pride in your living room. Perhaps you remember building one of the original kits as a youngster, cutting out the fiddly printed wood parts with a scalpel?
We’ve made building the kit easier for you – the precision laser-cut balsa parts simply push out ready for you to stick together using readily available PVA wood glue. We’ve included an original plan and instructions along with lightweight japanese tissue, propeller, rubber motor and wheels – in fact everything you’ll need to create a fully flyable recreation of this iconic aircraft.
So much more fun than a plastic “Airfix” kit, enjoy time together with your son or daughter developing engineering skills they’ll value forever and creating memories they’ll treasure for a lifetime. These kits make great Christmas gifts and birthday presents for that “hard to buy for” man who has everything (please note children under 14 should be supervised by an adult).
