At Hangar One we are thrilled to produce an extensive range of laser kitsets. Top quality is guaranteed with every kitset, because we hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea, and European Plywoods, and the CAD design and laser cutting is done by Top Gun Trophy Winner Gwyn Avenell.
Most of our kitsets are generally available in two options, either a Short Kit, or a Complete Airframe Kit.
A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build. Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.
Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.
With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.
Each Short Kit product description includes a complete list of the additional wood materials which need to be added in order to complete the airframe build. Some of these items you may already have on-hand in your workshop.
A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.
Every kit includes a full size printed plan, and where available the designers original construction notes. The kits do not include miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, control horns, hinges, wheels etc.
