Balsa Model Aircraft Kits

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.
Our current range of precision laser-cut balsa kits hark back to an era of aeromodelling where "stick and tissue" planes were all the rage and a Sunday morning at the park would see dads and sons flying (and crashing!) rubber powered aircraft in every direction.
Almost all the kits in our ranges can be converted to radio control (RC) planes and many can take electric or fuel powered engines.
