Aeronaut Vintage Control Line Kits

AeroNaut have re-released four of their vintage control line kits……they all date from the late 50’s….the Golden Age of CL...…..typically Continental the plans are a work of art as are the box lids…..there is a surprising degree of pre-fabrication with most major parts die cut or pre-shaped…..construction is a mix of balsa, obechi, ply and hardwoods……some hardware is included but usually in the form of DIY bellcrank, tank and horns etc which have to be made from the basic materials supplied…..there are English instructions and some white modelspan type tissue…AeroNaut have tried to keep the kits exactly as the originals……and apart from a few minor differences they have succeeded…..these kits are a real treat for the experienced builder.
