Unfortunately, no one sells kits using Coroplast anymore that I know of.
Sometimes a US Aircore kit pops up for sale. Once in a while a Airplane Factory Combat Airmadillo plane pops up for sale too. But we do have the SpadtotheBone website with plans and instructions for many coroplast planes though. http://www.spadtothebone.net/
So they are quite easy to make in any case.

There is a guy selling .25 sized combats WW1 and WW2 in southern Ontario, I don't know if he ships them across the border or anything. He is kind of a busy guy. I think they are laser cut and $45 for the WW1 and $60 for the WW2 ones last I heard. The WW2 ones have a formed canopy and cowl usually. They go through a whack of them on any given sunday.

I forgot that in some locales, some local modellers do make up some H.O.R. or Q.H.O.R. planes for the local combat competitions. But it depends on your area and hobby shops though.

The planes I was referring to are fairly well made, but a HOR or a basic SPAD doesn't really need a kit. Maybe one of the scalish ones. There is a Spad Cub(eww) and a spad Yak or Edge or Suquoi profile too.

Well my brother was wanting to lean to fly, with minimal out of pocket money. I was going to buy him a kit because we can't find gutter pipe. I am looking for a basic gutter pipe 25 size. Flat bottom wing.

The BUHOR .25 looks like a good cheap trainer for a .25. Just use the aluminum channel instead of the downspout. You can just fold up some coroplast into a box if you can't find the downspout too.

How a bout a delta? Hog Wild combat/sport/trainer coroplast kit. These things are a blast and almost indestructible. Believe me, I've tried.
