This laser-cut parts package for the balsabuilder Squirt, will turbo charge the plan based build allowing the modeler to quickly proceed to the framing portion of the build.  Featuring all required formers (laser-cut) and strip wood for this delightful 1/2A trainer as featured in Volume 1 | Issue 4 of balsabuilder magazine.

Background:

In 2016 we made a complete redesign of the Stevens AeroModel Squirt 400 exclusively for publication in balsabuilder Magazine.  The balsabuilder version of this classic radio control, electric powered, model features a plans-built friendly laser-cut parts package and support for 1/2A fuel powered engines.  

This laser-cut parts package is designed to augment the plans, published in Volume 1 | Issue 4 of  balsabuilder magazine, and have been enhanced with numerous helpful interlocking building aids which greatly simplify the assembly process.  Unlike the laser-engineered Stevens AeroModel design, the balsabuilder version of this iconic model was developed to satisfy those seeking a more traditional model building experience.  Construction of balsabuilder designs therefore favor the use of a building board and t-pins.  This more traditional build will reward the hobbyist with a deligtfully strong airframe featuring clean lines and beautiful open "stick" frame work to enjoy. 

This product has been designed for 1/2A fuel powered model aircraft engines but is suitable for coversion to Speed 400 electric power.

  • Laser-cut formers and required strip wood stock

  • balsabuilder Magazine Volume 1 | Issue 4 (includes plans and construction article)
