Full Description

A really unusual subject and definitely one for relaxed scale flying enthusiasts. Spacewalker. RC scale model. 1,368 sq in wing area, for .61 power and 4 channel RC. Designed by Dennis Tapsfield, and featured in Dec 1988 RC Model World Magazine (Article included with Plan and Short Kit (Set))

The Full Size: Spacewalker is a homebuilt aircraft designed by Jesse Anglin who formed Country Air Inc, in North Carolina. Being a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, I receive their monthly magazine Sport Aviation, and it was in this magazine that I first saw a picture of Spacewalker when it made its debut at Oshkosh in 1986. It really attracted me and I thought that its striking colour scheme, it made the aircraft a perfect subject for a supermodel. A number of letters, plus a telephone call, were necessary to get the information, but I finally had all that was required to make a start; this was in Sept-Oct ’87.

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 a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

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 sheet.
