Our Latest Laser Cut Short Kit The Super Sinbad
Same Classic Lines From The 1943 Design Scaled Up To A 93" Wingspan 2 Channel Glider
Designed originally back in 1943, the Super Sinbad was produced by Berkeley Models as a 62" span tow line glider. We have taken those gorgeous, classic lines of the Super Sinbad and scaled it up to a 93" 2 channel glider for slope or bungee launch. The kit features a two piece wing that uses the original aerofoil, with laser cut steal wing joiner, and an easily built open fuselage structure. This kitset is one gentle slope or thermal flyer.

Our Laser Cut Short Kit The Heron
Featuring Classic Lines From The 1970's Scaled Up To 142" Wingspan

So now you can re-live the Golden Years of RC Sailplanes in an easy building modern kitset. The design features an interlocking fuselage for straightforward and accurate construction and our own completely re-drawn full size plan. Check it out here.

The 108" 90 to 120 Size Anderson Kingfisher Laser Cut Short Kit
We are very proud to present our latest Laser Cut Short Kit, the 108" Anderson Kingfisher! The prototype Anderson Kingfisher was designed and built by Earl Anderson, a Boeing 747 Captain. It took him 9 years to complete, with the first flight made in 1969.
Standard Piper Cub wings were used, and the result is a fun amphibian which flies like a Cub! We have improved on the original design with redesigned fuselage formers making up the front nose section, simplifying the build, and interlocking parts to accurately create the wing tip floats without having to do any foam cutting.
