Our 1/144 scale kits come in two basic types; the traditional wood frame construction, or a more up to date fiberglass construction.

Wood Kit

The wood frame kits include machine cut parts of birch plywood, balsa, hardwood dowel, metal tubing, and ultra high density foam. Also included are fiberglass cloth, rolled plans, vacuum molded radio box and superstructure parts, balsa and plywood hull sheeting, and assembly instructions.

Fiberglass Kit

In the fiberglass kits, the precut plywood hull frame is replaced by a one piece fiberglass hull shell. You simply cut "windows" in the side of the shell with a Dremel type hand grinder. This leaves a fiberglass frame that is then sheeted with soft balsa wood to allow penetration by BBs. This form of assembly is much quicker and easier, giving you a much smoother and more durable hull. Cutting these "windows" in the fiberglass shell also gives greater flexibility with which to meet varying club rules and your own personal preferences as to width, number, and spacing of hull ribs.

Some fiberglass kits are also available as a "hull only" and as a "hull kit". A "hull only" is just that, a fiberglass hull shell and nothing else. "Hull kits" include the fiberglass hull shell, plywood deck(s), balsa hull sheeting, and assembly instructions.
