Aeronca7AC Builders Kit:

Announcing the first of a scale lineup of beautiful, scale electric powered airplanes designed by Sky Greenawalt of Acme Aircraft.  Sky is a masterful airplane designer, and we are proud to have an exclusive arrangement to produce parts from his designs.  

 

The prototype model of this design was masterfully built by the late Nick Kelez, and as you can see, this kit can create a stunningly accurate scale masterpiece.

 

The model construction is very straightforward, with fuselage sides that are built flat on the bench, then assembled over the top view.  The wings consist of laser cut ribs, sheer webbing, and gussets.  The empennage is stick built with laminated bow outlines.  

 

Construction is very straightforward, but it is intended for experienced builders.  The helpful online build thread (linked above)  is the builder’s instruction manual.
