Skyshark Warbird Kits are hand-made by us at our facility in the USA. We only use top quality materials in each kit. When you purchase a Skyshark kit, you can be assured that you are purchasing a kit that flies as well as it builds.

Skyshark kits were designed to be laser cut from the start. While more expensive to produce, our kits offer extensive part detail and exact parts fit that simply cannot be reproduced by any other means. We cut with only hand sorted balsa, which insures evenly balanced parts and a consistent cut without too much charring.

What sets Skyshark kits apart from everyone else is their light weight and intricate laser cutting. Balsa formers at critical locations and limited use of ply insures that your Skyshark warbird will remain light, strong and fly great! 

All Skyshark kits are sheeted with 1/16” Balsa. Sheeting removed on photo for clarity

Vacuum formed canopies in your Skyshark kit are made from .030 PETG so they retain clarity and strength. Other parts such as wing filets, belly pans, scoops, etc. are made from ABS and styrene for durability. Fiberglass cowls by Aeroglass are included with each kit.

The following kits contain full, laser-cut cockpits:
TBM Avenger
All Messerschmitts
All Focke Wulfs
Aichi Val
Sturmovik IL-2

(sorry, but cockpits are not available individually because they are integrated in the structure of the airframe)

We print each set of plans directly from the CAD program to a color inkjet plotter. This guarantees that the plans match each laser cut part exactly. The different colors help to define areas in the plans such as servos, control rods, etc.

A digital photo illustrated instruction manual for each kit is available for download. The manual details each step of the construction process including a separate section for retracts and optional fixed gear. Manuals also contain 3 view drawings and printable markings.

Note: A B&W printed manual is available for an extra charge, but will not contain 3 views or markings.
