Cliffwhacker is a flap-equipped slope Sportster from Alex Whittaker’s drawing board. It was the free plan with RCM&E’s Jan 2015 issue with a follow-up article in the new March issue.
Easy to build, the model is a perfect sloper and handles a variety of conditions. Those who hate cutting ribs and formers will be pleased to know that a laser cut wood pack and an additional wood pack are available

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST 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 if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.
