Hangar One Classic Laser Cut Short Kits - Proudly Made In New Zealand & Exported Worldwide
At Hangar One we are thrilled to produce a range of laser cut short kitsets of some classic designs.
Our laser cut short kits include all of the shaped parts in balsa and ply which would normally require the builder to cut them from sheets.
Items such as wing ribs & dihedral joiners, fuselage formers and various fuselage parts and doublers are all precisely laser cut.
Grab Only The Extras That You Need - Or Pickup A Completion Pack
A short kit leaves you to purchase only the sticks, spruce or balsa sheets you need to complete the kit, some of which you may already have on-hand.
The listing of each kit includes a bill of wood materials required to complete the kit, along with a preview of the laser cut parts included in the short kit.
We also provide the option to make up a completion pack for you, including all of the extra wood required to complete the kit if you require - all at the click of a button when ordering. Note that the kits do not include the miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, hinges, wing joiners etc.
Proudly Made In New Zealand!
Our kits are proudly made in New Zealand!
We hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea and European Plywoods, and the CAD design and laser cutting is done by Master Modeller Gwyn Avenell in Auckland.
The kits also include a variety of improvements such as improved material selection for some parts, interlocking formers in places to help produce a straight build and alignment, and MDF jigs to hold parts in place and help with jobs such as former, dihedral and wing rib angle alignment, so you are guaranteed a precise finished aircraft.
With the immense accuracy available with laser cutting, we have regenerated the wing ribs for our kitsets using Compufoil, for a far more accurate wing rib cut than on the original plan drawings, so your spars and pre-cut webbings will simply fall together.
Laser cut short kits also include a full size rolled plan and where available the original designers build article.
