Wittman Tailwind (48″) – Additional Wood Pack

Additional Wood Pack for Peter Miller’s 48″ span model reproduces the Tailwind’s pleasing lines and flies superbly well using a .20-.25 two-stroke or four-stroke equivalent engine, plus the huge fuselage means an electric conversion should be easy to engineer too.

Full Description

Steve Wittman’s cheap home-build cross-country Sportster kick-started the home build boom in the 1950s and it’s still being built and flown today.

The Laser cut parts set speeds up the build process by reproducing the ribs, formers and other parts (apart from strip balsa) required for the model while a wood completion pack that includes the strip and sheet balsawood is also available. The cowl is made using balsa and ply.

An electric conversion build blog can be found at www.modelflying.co.uk and builders can chat with designer Peter Miller in the friendly forum.

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.

Please note this is ONLY the additional wood pack. All CNC and additional wood packs are cut to order and as such we are unable to accept returns unless they are found to be faulty.
