Our Latest Laser Cut Short Kit For The Scale Guys - De Havilland DH94 Moth Minor 88" 90 Size
The Moth Minor was designed as a low-wing monoplane to replace the biplane Moth series, and was intended to give similar performance with less power, without the need for rigging. With a selling price of only 575 Pounds the Moth Minor was popular with flying clubs keen to acquire modern monoplanes. Our own design of the Moth Minor in 88" for 90 to 120 size engines includes quick and easy interlocking construction for a simple yet accurate build, and plug-in wings for ease of transport. Check it out here.
Solarfilm Factory Closes - Grab Your Solarfilm Products While We still Have Stock
The sad news of the UK Solarfilm factory closure is true, and no more Solarfilm products will be produced. Solartex fabric has been a brilliant covering for vintage aircraft, and their Solite has been a favourite with small model builders where lightweight covering is important.
We have some of the last stocks of Solartex available, along with Solite, Airspan, Litespan and Fibafilm. So if you've got a project in mind or on the go, grab what you need quickly while there's still stock available because it's disappearing fast!
(Yes we can ship internationally. All prices are in NZ Dollars)
