Build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a 1918 SE5A fitted with the Wolseley Viper engine in the authentic scheme of a brown SE5A flown by 84 Squadron of the then newly formed RAF, using the traditional method of stick and tissue, that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin, using a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. In the spirit of the traditional kits, profiles have been simplified and adjusted from the original and a relatively large propeller used. These adjustments have been done with care and sensitivity so that the shape and spirit of the original aircraft is preserved as much as possible. Also in the spirit of the traditional kits, additional items required are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. KIT CONTENTS Four balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood, PVA glue for building the wooden frames. 1 x 150mm diameter plastic propeller, 1 x pre-bent motor hook and shaft, small piece of acetate sheet for the screen, 3 x low friction plastic nose bushings - one for the propeller and two for the undercarriage wheels, Piano wire for the main undercarriage and tail wheel legs, 1 x motor peg (cocktail stick or toothpick), 2 x plastic drinking straws (approximately 5mm in diameter), Rubber motor strip, Tissue to cover the model, Parts reference sheet (W), full size summary plan sheet (X), scheme diagram sheet (Y) and scheme markings (Z) printed on lightweight paper.
