What's in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack?
What’s in a Short Kit?
A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
What's in an Additional Wood Pack?
Our Additional Wood Packs contain most, if not all, of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes, but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists.
Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
Due to the vastness of our plans range Additional Wood Packs are only available for a small number of kits at this time. Please visit http://www.sarikhobbies.com/shop/ and search for the plan you are interested in. Then look to see if there is a picture of the model with an icon in the top left corner showing three boxes. If you click on the picture this will show all the Grouped Products for that particular model, including the availability of a laser/cnc cut wood pack, an Additional Wood Pack, as well as any other parts, such as a cowl and/or canopy.
How do I find out what additional products are available for my chosen plan?

Our Sets contain only the products shown in the Grouped Product listing (excluding any 3D printed items) and do not include any hardware or accessories.
Why isn't there a laser/cnc cut wood pack and an AWP for every plan?
We are currently experiencing a high demand to make Laser Cut Wood Packs and Additional Wood Packs that are not currently in our range. So following a request for a missing laser/cnc cut wood pack or AWP, we are adding them to a ‘To Do’ list that enables us to concentrate on the most frequently requested kits.
We would be pleased to add your favourite plan to this list but we have to warn you that it could be many months before we are likely to receive the laser cutting files to be able to produce a kit for you, possibly longer if you are the only person to request a kit for a less popular design.
There is no charge or commitment if you would like a plan to be added to this list, but we will ask to take your details so that we can contact you as soon as a laser/cnc cut wood pack or AWP is available.
Why do you use metric wood, even though many older plans are drawn in imperial?
The suppliers we currently use are based in the UK and they only sell their products in metric sizes, so if you are building from a plan that shows imperial measurements you will need to convert them. We would recommend using an online metric converter, although it is also worth trying a voice assistant on a mobile phone, such as Siri, as they may work too.
How long will my order take?
