Cessna CR3 24 inch free flight scale model

Cessna CR3 24 inch free flight scale model

from 35.00

This is a short kit for the Cessna CR3 racer from the late thirties. This particular kit spans 24 inches and was designed with the FAC Thomson trophy mass launch event in mind. Kit comes with all of the sheet wood (1/16” , 3/32” and 3/16” balsa) required to build the model, a jig patterns sheet that you can attach to a sheet of foam (3 mm deperon foam works great for this) or balsa to make the simple fuselage jig, and some art for the pilot, prop and cockpit. It will also include a Vacformed Canopy and all of the plywood parts required for the front end, rear peg and K&P or Gizmo Geezer adjustable thrust button options. Note you can buy the version with built-up ribs (complex build) or sheet ribs (simple build) select this option when you make your purchase.
