Laser Cut Kits of Parts


INTRODUCTION

The laser cutting of parts in small volumes and to a high quality has now become a practical proposition. Leon Cole of BELAIR is now producing a range of kits that include a number of free flight models. See Belair for more details.

Leon has kitted a number of models from plans in the Free Flight Supplies catalogue. Details of plans below, kits available from Leon. Others are in the pipeline.

For the full range of plans available from Free Flight Supplies see Plans

Do make sure that you have parts and plan matched as for some plans that have several versions that have been drafted by different modellers and there will be minor variations. If the parts are from a different plan the parts may well not fit.
