Sad to say that when Pilot Kits hit UK - it rang the death bell for many local kit makers .... Lite Ply, best diecutting ever seen, scale and accurate.

I had various of their kits ... HB10, HB40 - sport planes that flew great ... Nieuport 28 WW1 scale - came 8th in Southern UK champs with that ... Zlin Akrobat ...

Pilot kits were that good ... the Zlin I literally built without jigging in my hands. I slotted it together, zapped with CA the joints .... covered it and bingo had a scale, accurate, true aligned model. OS20 up front ... beautiful model. Sadly I flat span her in while practicing for a scale comp.

If any kit maker now is as good those were then - must be good !
