Looking for some scale kits.....Links would be GREAT!


I'd like to build some scale speed 400 or smaller size electric stuff. I got the Hobby Lobby Speed 400 Super Cub on the way now to start with. I have been looking for some more sources of scale kits, plans. I've always just flown sport planes in the past. I tried to find Dare models, I have seen some of them in the past, and thought that they looked nice, but I can't find a link to them. I tried www.darehobby.com and it said access was forbidden 403! So....any help here would be great! Also, feel free to post links to other places. Thanks alot....Chris

P.S....More into GA stuff than war planes.

Chris, try www.rbckits.com
Tipsy Nipper, Pou du Ciel and Beaufighter (twin) are scale kits for Speed 400.
Don't know where you are, but EAMC is representing RBC Kits in the U.S. of A.

New warbird kits

A new company by the name of Seriously Fun Models has started manufacturing medium density foam "stand off" scale speed 400 aircraft and just opened to the public as of Oct. 2001.
We offer 4 different models. A P-51B, ME-109E, P-40E and a Japanese Zero each with a 31 inch wingspan and 16Oz. average flying weight. These little gems are Highly aerobatic on 7 cells and look great! Price is $60.00 USD each plus shipping. 4 more warbirds are on the drawing board soon to be released as well as 4 speed 280 twins. Website is being constructed as we speak but you can still order by email at manuel@idirect.com

Regards and Seasons Greetings to all, Ken Manuel

P.S. Wishing everyone lots of new planes for Christmas!
