In addition, the entire plane will only take up the space of a one-car garage. No stress about finding somewhere to park it, which can be a huge perk for those interested in getting into this popular niche hobby.
Something that makes this company unique is that each kit is easy to set up, only requiring basic hand tools that most already have on hand. All the machined and welded pieces come pre-fabricated for convenience. In about 300 to 400 person hours, you can have your own vintage airplane to enjoy.
All plane kits come with an instructional video to make construction easy enough for an amateur builder to put together in no time. Once constructed, you’re sure to enjoy hours and hours of fun utilizing the airplane.
