We are able to customize any design for your company or promotional event with either screen printed and/or laser cut designs. Here are a few examples of our work.
S Hook with Free Wheeling Device
We have “S” hooks now available – these are 1.2mm (3/64”) and are complete with all the parts required to convert your old model or build it in to your new model. These will stop the rubber motor “climbing” up the shaft and allow the prop to free wheel once the energy is removed from the rubber motor.

We are always looking for overseas distributors for these “S” Hook kits.

Moswey III – 36% Model Glider
The Moswey series of gliders was developed prior to the WW2 in 1938. The third model was the first one to achieve full production status.
The aircraft is built from wood. The fuselage is a monocoque design, while the wings and tail surfaces are a wooden frame covered in doped aircraft fabric covering. The fuselage is of a hexagonal section forward and a diamond section aft. The fuselage is built upon a main keel beam that also contains the control runs. The 14.0 m (45.9 ft) span wing is a gulled design, employing a Goettingen 535 airfoil, with air brakes for glidepath control. The structure is stressed for aerobatics at +/-12g.
The laser cut short kit consists of all the laser cut wing ribs, tailplane and rudder parts and all fuselage formers for this 5.50 metre wingspan model.

The first flight of the first prototype took place on 7 November 1966. However, no series production was started.In 1972 Pilatus bought the manufacturing licence for the B-4 and renamed it the B4-PC11. In the spring of the same year the first production example (numbered HB-1100) made its first flight.
