Rubber Powered Aircraft Kits

SE5



Britain’s best fighter planes in WWI were the famed Sopwith Camel and the SE5. The SE5 was faster and more maneuverable than the German fighters and therefore helped maintain Allied air superiority.

This kit is a 1:6 scale flying model. Not only is this a great rubber powered aircraft, this jumbo model is also very popular for conversion to electric or gas powered flight. Pre-1942 design, eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand picked printed balsa and balsa strip wood, rubber motor, 12" EB propeller, EBM thrust bearing, TissueCal™ markings, clear plastic for the windshield, wheels, landing gear wire, and Easy Built Lite tissue in olive green and light sky blue. To build this model you will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.
