Skyshark laser-cut warbird kits are CAD designed from original scale drawings and laser-cut from hand sorted, top grade balsa and ply. Intermediate builders who have some experience with framing and sheeting should have no trouble building a Skyshark warbird kit. Large wing areas and lightweight design make our kits some of the best flying scale warbirds available.
While most kits in the past were created using parts that were die-cut from the cheapest available wood, our kits were designed to be laser cut from the start. While more expensive to produce, Skyshark 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.
Most reproduced plans can vary in size and scale by as much as 15% that is the reason we print our plans directly on full color plotters. Not only are they 100% accurate but the use of color makes parts like receivers, pushrods, etc. easily identifiable.
Skyshark warbird kits were designed with weight in mind. Our laser-interlocking design allows us to use lightweight balsa in many areas where other manufacturers use ply. Option for computer designed lightning holes maximize strength while making the kits even lighter. Wood blocks or strip planking are only used when absolutely necessary. This not only saves weight, but also building time.
