The world's finest scale balsa model kits featuring true to life "action" parts such as movable flying surfaces, sliding canopies, retractable landing gear and droppable bombs. Kits can be built as beautiful scale shelf model or flown (rubber free flight or with some scratch building modification convert to electric powered flight). Although the fuselages of these models are roomy enough to take simple R/C equipment and electric motors ... no instructions, diagrams or parts list are included or available.
Fabulous models for rubber power, free flight or scale display. The ultimate in design and construction. From the extra special instruction sheets and plans to the well cut precision laser cut balsa sheets, these truly represent the best of the best for those seeking the unusual in value, quality and complete.
The popular private planes in the 300 series now have precision laser cut balsa parts. Laser cut parts are much easier to build from and make a more precise model than die cut. Guillow's has been working hard to redraw and convert our existing kits over to this newer technology. Watch for the above laser cut logo in catalogs and on box covers!
Although the original manufacturer of the Aeronca Champion sold their business, their successor the Champion Aircraft Corp. produced many of this widely known personal airplane. Aeroncas have been a common site on American airports for many years and rival the Piper Cubs for popularity. This scale model of the Champion 85 is designed to faithfully duplicate the many fine characteristics of this flyer.
