Is there anyone making a kit for this plane currently? I saw where Polecat Aeroworks used to make a laser cut kit, but they are out of business, unfortunately.

amike!

Not that I know of!
A member here Allan Wright is weighing the possibility of doing the kits.
I think he done the laser cutting for Polecataero!
Maybe an email would help him to make his mind up!!(hint-Hint) I would build another kit, but hate to do the cutting!!!!!!!!

Regards!

That is what I call beginners luck...

This clearly confirms that MITJA was truly inspired on this one!!!
There are GUPPY s from 2mtr to 270mm...

I dare anyone to do a 3mtr guppy...?!!!


I hope your son enjoys IT.
