Description: The VMC Pilot is a high wing cabin sports model designed for fun flying. This is not a scale model based on a real (or what modellers call the ‘prototype’) aircraft, but is designed purely as a flying model. Sports models come in many guises and are often flown in competitions that are purely about flying duration, with many different sets of rules and regulations governing their size and shape. Often these models bear no resemblance to a real aircraft at all, with thin tubular fuselages, no undercarriage and very long thin wings. A cabin sports model is one that has a ‘cockpit’ where a notional pilot could sit, with fewer compromises to the size and shape for duration. Therefore, it sits between a scale model and a pure duration model both in the way it looks and the way it performs. These models are much easier to build and fly than their scale model counterparts and therefore form an ideal starting point for a new modeller. YOUR KIT: This kit is for building a traditionally constructed, rubber-powered, free-flight cabin sports model of an original design by the Vintage Model Company ( VMC). Construction of the model from this kit uses simple balsa wood surfaces and the traditional method of ‘stick and tissue’ for the wings; that is to say, a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa wings are built over a plan printed at their exact scale. Power is provided by a rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free-flight means just that – once the model is launched it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or ‘trimmed’. Also in the spirit of traditional kits, additional items required to build the model are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. KIT CONTENTS: Three balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood. PVA glue for building the wooden frames. Piece of P400 Sandpaper . Pre-formed wire main undercarriage. Three low friction plastic ‘nose’ bushings – one for the propeller and two for the undercarriage wheels. Three cocktail sticks /toothpicks to use as dowels. One 150mm diameter plastic propeller. One pre-bent motor hook and shaft. Coloured covering tissue. Piece of clear acetate for the windows and ‘trim tabs’. Lightweight printed paper graphics sheet. Two rubber bands to secure the wings. Rubber motor strip. Two building plan sheets. Parts reference sheet. Wingspan - 483mm (19) The Deluxe Materials Balsa Kit Glue Deal (sold separately) Contains: Super Phatic Glue 50ml: Highly penetrating yellow aliphatic glue with wicking action . Dries to 50% of its weight so ideal for lightweight models. Tissue Paste 50ml: A specially developed tissue paste used for sticking tissue paper to model aircraft. Eze Dope 250ml: Traditional modellers tissue shrinking dope. A safe, non-toxic alternative to the traditional flammable dope liquid. Its safe non-flammable formula has little odour and brushes are water-washable. ( Please note: this deal includes only the glues mentioned. The Balsa Kit must be purchased separately.)

Description: OSPREY - SIMPLE FLYING FUN The Osprey is a high wing, cabin sports glider model designed for fun flying. This is not a scale model based on a real (or what modellers call prototype) aircraft, but is designed purely as a flying model. Sports models come in many guises and are often flown in competitions that are purely about flying duration, with many different sets of rules and regulations governing their size and shape. Often these models bear no resemblance to a real aircraft at all, with thin tubular fuselages, no undercarriage and very long thin wings. A cabin sports model means one which has a cockpit where a notional pilot could sit, with fewer compromises to the size and shape for duration. Therefore it sits between a scale model and a pure duration model, both in the way it looks and the way it performs. These types of models are much easier to build and fly than their scale model counterparts and therefore form an ideal starting point for a new modeller. YOUR KIT Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of stick and tissue, that is to say a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan printed at the exact scale of the model which is in essence a real engineering drawing. The glider can be launched by hand on flat terrain for short and simple flights or on a slope for longer flights. It can also be towed into the air. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or trimmed. This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill ñ but is extremely rewarding. Although not a serious sports glider model, if built correctly and in the right hands, the Osprey is capable of surprisingly long flights. In the spirit of the old kits additional items required to build the model are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. KIT CONTENTS 3 off balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood. PVA glue for building the wooden frames. Piano wire for making a tow hook (if desired). Dowel for the wing fixings and tail plane fixings. Rubber bands to hold the wings and tail plane in position. Piece of clear acetate for the windows and trim tabs. Tissue to cover the model. Parts reference sheet ( W) and full size summary plan sheet ( X). The Deluxe Materials Balsa Kit Glue Deal (sold separately) Contains: Super Phatic Glue 50ml: Highly penetrating yellow aliphatic glue with wicking action . Dries to 50% of its weight so ideal for lightweight models. Tissue Paste 50ml: A specially developed tissue paste used for sticking tissue paper to model aircraft. Eze Dope 250ml: Traditional modellers tissue shrinking dope. A safe, non-toxic alternative to the traditional flammable dope liquid. Its safe non-flammable formula has little odour and brushes are water-washable. ( Please note: this deal includes only the glues mentioned. The Balsa Kit must be purchased separately.) To complete the kit you will also require: pins, a modelling knife, sand paper and pliers (sold seperately) Suitable for ages 14+

Description: SOPWITH F1 CAMEL - A FEARSOME FOE Wingsan 406mm 16 KIT CONTENTS: Four balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood. PVA glue for building the wooden frames. One 150mm diameter plastic propeller. One pre-bent motor hook and shaft. Small piece of thin acetate sheet for the upper wing window. Small piece of thick acetate sheet for the screen. Three low friction plastic nose bushings - one for the propeller and two for the undercarriage wheels. Piano wire for the main undercarriage legs. A matchstick for the tail skid. One motor peg (cocktail stick or toothpick). A plastic drinking straw (approximately 5mm in diameter). Rubber motor strip. Tissue to cover the model. Parts reference sheets ( W), full size summary plan sheets ( X), scheme diagram sheet ( Y) and scheme markings ( Z) printed on lightweight paper. Arguably the most famous and deadliest British aircraft of World War One, the Sopwith F1 Camel was designed by Herbert Smith as a replacement for his earlier design the Sopwith Pup. The Pup was being outclassed by German aircraft such as the Albatross DIII and a faster, more heavily armed replacement was required. The Pup was relatively easy to fly with somewhat benign characteristics, however the F1 was not. The powerful Clerget rotary engine created powerful gyroscopic forces that coupled with the torque made the aircraft able to turn to the right very quickly but with a nose down tendency. These dynamic forces plus a nose heavy weight distribution made the aircraft manoeuvrable and a fearsome foe - but tricky to fly. This often ended in disaster especially for inexperienced pilots. The F1 was the first British aircraft to have guns that fired through the propeller disc via a synchronising gear. These guns were mounted forward of the cockpit with the breeches housed in a hump. This hump gave the F1 the unofficial nickname of Camel, which became synonymous with the aircraft despite it never being an official designation. Along with its stablemate the SE5 A, the Sopwith Camel gave the RCF, RNAS and emerging RAF air superiority over the Luftstreitkrafte towards the end of the war. YOUR KIT: This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a 1918 Sopwith F1 Camel of No.13 Squadron RNAS. The No. 13 Squadron RNAS (latterly 213 Squadron RAF) provided cover for naval sea planes and shipping, before supporting the Belgian army towards the end of the war. This is a simple but striking scheme, but you can decide to do your own favourite or more complicated scheme if you wish as there are a vast number of Camel schemes to choose from. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of stick and tissue, that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or trimmed. This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding. Typically for a small model and in the spirit of the traditional kits, profiles are simplified and adjusted from the original and a relatively large propeller is used. This is done so that the model is light and stable enough to fly on its own, is simple in construction and can work with the rubber motor. These adjustments have been done with care and sensitivity so that the shape and spirit of the original aircraft is preserved as much as possible. Also in the spirit of the traditional kits, additional items required to build the model are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. The Deluxe Materials Balsa Kit Glue Deal (sold separately) Contains: Super Phatic Glue 50ml: Highly penetrating yellow aliphatic glue with wicking action . Dries to 50% of its weight so ideal for lightweight models. Tissue Paste 50ml: A specially developed tissue paste used for sticking tissue paper to model aircraft.

Description: Cessna Bird Dog Kit This tough, agile little aircraft continued service into the Vietnam war - now designated the O-1. It was also taken up by the US Air Force as a forward air control aircraft, the object of which was to direct fast attack aircraft to the target. The pilots that flew this smallest and simplest of warbirds were indeed brave - shooting at one would not have been difficult. However, losses were far less than may have been feared, simply because by shooting at the Bird Dog, the enemy would give away their position. Nearly 3500 aircraft were built, mainly by Cessna, but also in small numbers by contractors in both the United States and Japan. After their military service, many were sold on as recreational aircraft. They found a particular use as glider and advertising banner tow aircraft. Today a large number of these aircraft are still airworthy – testament to their resilience, but many can also be seen on static display in museums in the many countries that operated them. YOUR KIT This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber-powered, free flight model of an OE-1 Cessna Bird Dog, operated by the U. S. Marines Observation and Reconnaissance Squadron VMO-2, stationed in Japan in around 1952. This is a simple but striking scheme, however, you can decide to do your own favourite or more complicated scheme if you wish as there are many Bird Dog schemes to choose from.

YOUR KIT: This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a Corsair operated by VMF-216, a fighter squadron of the U. S. Marines Corps - nicknamed the “ Bulldogs”. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of ‘stick and tissue’, that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.

VOUGHT F4 U CORSAIR - THE WHISTLING DEATH In 1938 the U. S. Bureau of Aeronautics issued a specification to manufacturers for a carrier-based fighter bomber. Chance Vought successfully answered this request with a proposal for an aircraft fitted with the biggest, most powerful, air-cooled engine of the day - the hugely powerful Pratt and Whitney 18-cylinder Double Wasp. The engine required a very large diameter propeller to use the 1850 horsepower available, which gave the Vought engineers a headache as it required an equally large clearance to the ground. The simple answer of a tall undercarriage would be unacceptable due to the harsh landing loads expected for a carrier based aircraft. To overcome this problem, the design team lead by Rex Beisel came up with a bent inverted gull wing design. The inboard section of the wing having a severe anhedral angle and outboard section a severe dihedral angle with the undercarriage positioned at the joint of the two. As well as being structurally sound the distinctive configuration had the advantage of minimising drag at the wing root to fuselage joint. The clean lines of the airframe and the powerful engine gave the Corsair a 400mph plus top speed and impressive rates of climb, but the long nose and consequent poor forward visibility when landing, coupled with other difficulties initially made for unsuccessful carrier trials. The U. S. Navy proceeded with the easier to handle Grumman Hellcat, turning over the Corsair to the U. S. Marines. However, the British Fleet Air Arm persisted (probably through necessity as much as any other factor) and by using different landing techniques and modifications, went on to operate the aircraft successfully from carriers. The U. S. Marines soon made use of the Corsair's speed, agility, ruggedness and range as they flew it from rough runways on small Pacific islands. It is said that the Japanese named the aircraft the Whistling Death because of the deadliness of the aircraft along with the distinctive noise created by the air as it passed through the large wing root mounted oil coolers. Operating well after the Second World War, over 12,500 examples of the Corsair were produced over a 9 year period to 1953, with many serving as recently as the late seventies in some territories.

Description: Sopwith Triplane Kit This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber-powered, free-flight model of a 1917 Triplane of No.1 Squadron RNAS. This is a simple but striking scheme, but you can decide to do your own favourite or more complicated scheme if you wish as there are many triplane schemes to choose from. The No.1 Squadron RNAS (latterly 201 Squadron RAF) flew Triplanes between December 1916 and December 1917 over the Western Front before being belatedly re-equipped with Sopwith Camels. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of ‘stick and tissue’, that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that – once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or ‘trimmed’. This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding. The Sopwith Triplane is just one of a series of kits designed and manufactured by the Vintage Model Company. Aeromodelling was very popular from the 1950s until the 1980s and following a decline and the loss of UK manufacturers such as FROG, Keil Kraft and Veron, a revival is now underway. The advent of modern technology such as laser cutting of parts and the growth of the internet giving access to information on the skills and techniques required to successfully build and fly these models, means new enthusiasts are discovering the joys of aeromodelling every day. Typically for a small model and in the spirit of the traditional kits, profiles are simplified and adjusted from the original and a relatively large propeller is used. This is done so that the model is light and stable enough to fly on its own, is simple in construction and can work with the rubber motor. These adjustments have been done with care and sensitivity so that the shape and spirit of the original aircraft is preserved as much as possible. Also in the spirit of the traditional kits, additional items required to build the model are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street.
