I’m amazed at the quality of the Laser cutting of this kit and how well parts fit together. The “engineering “ that has gone into this plane blows me away. Hardest part is locating the parts but it’s not really that difficult. Looking forward to seeing this airplane maiden in early Spring.
The quality just blows me away…
I received my kit yesterday and the quality just blows me away. Looking forward to this build. Hopefully we’ll share some progress pics on Facebook.
Waterboard – Mini
If you want to have a blast on a small patch of water (or snow I suppose) then this is the kit to buy! This is the third Waterboard Mini and it is just perfection to build. The instructions are accurate and complete with the additional tuning tips to get your boat planing and running… Read more “Waterboard – Mini”
Just received my Re-Run! As per my experience with Stevens Aero kits, it is just the bee’s knees! I am tickled pink! Kit is complete, all the way down to the 5 cent ballast! Thought that was rather cute of ya’ll. Many thanks, for an excellent product, Everett
Just completed my first Steves Aero model kit and it won’t be my last!
I finally got around to trying one of your kits that I purchased at the AMA convention. All I can say is WOW! What well designed kit! Excellent wood, clear instructions and awesome design choices. I have converted a couple of Guillows kits to RC which can be a little bit of a challenge but… Read more “Just completed my first Steves Aero model kit and it won’t be my last!”
I purchased a couple Rockette kits at the AMA Expo West last month so a coworker and I could build them to fly in a hangar at work. We finished them up this week, and WOW where they FUN to build! We put maybe 20 hours total into each, and were thoroughly impressed at the… Read more “Rockette Twins”
Have been flying my Swift 100 in the evenings when the wind is almost stopped. It is absolutely a blast to fly. I can’t believe everything that little plane can do. I have built three Stevens models now, and in all my building and flying days,(which are quite a few) I have never seen such… Read more “Swift 100”
The Baby Ace I have is one of my favorites and it’s making my other planes jealous. It’s been eaten by trees, had its wing ripped off several times, chased by a German Shepherd and keeps on flying. Meanwhile, I have foamies sitting on the shelf. The good news is they have “organs” waiting to… Read more “Almost fool-proof”
All joy – no hassles!
Keep up the good work! I’m having a ball making balsa dust in my workshop again. I’ve always held that styrofoam has no soul. Building a Stevens AeroModel kit brings back all the joy of the stick-and-tissue modeling I enjoyed as a kid – with none of the hassles.
A game changer!
I am a disabled veteran with limited mobility. I have been building balsa wood models for years, Guillows in particular. I read about Stevens AeroModel in one of the RC forums. So I found a hobby shop about 60 miles from me that had your products and bought one, in particular the Taylorcraft with “Duane… Read more “A game changer!”
We couldn’t believe how nice it flies (right off the board)!
I have been trading your (micro) kits to a young man (12 years old) for yard work. I think I’ve created a new model builder !!! He loves it. Another friend, who only flew 3/D worked together with me building your “Helium MG2” glider. We couldn’t believe how nice it flies (right off the board).… Read more “We couldn’t believe how nice it flies (right off the board)!”
I can’t believe the quality of your kits!
I can’t believe the quality of your kits! I’ve been building models since the early 50’s and have never had the pleasure of something as enjoyable as your S-POU kit. The parts fit is astounding, the plans are first class and the engineering is a work of art. The balsa is some of the best… Read more “I can’t believe the quality of your kits!”
Easy to assemble model airplane
I recieved one of your kits wanting to get into building them and i was amazed!!! It was so easy to assemble and is a great looking plane!! I liked it so much that i have already ordered another one!!!
Helium Motor Glider is Fun!
I bought a helium a year ago built this plane and flew it for about a year and love it. It was fun building this plane and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to build an fly it has been fun.
I love these easy to assemble model airplanes
Just ordered the 1911 Caudron Racer. I love these precious little easy to assemble model airplanes. I’m old enough to have seen the real one, a much later model fly in i believe 1936 in the air races held here at Mines field now called LAX. California. I have built several of your models, last… Read more “I love these easy to assemble model airplanes”
I completed the Baby Ace and went straight on to the 1911 Caudron. These have been the best kits I have ever built. Absolutely loving the builds. I took a leap of faith based on your feedback page and bought 4 kits. I am about to start the Fokker Dvii. My only concern is what… Read more “Awesome Work!”
The most satisfying kits to build and fly!
Whether is shredding up the skies with the G480 or floating around at sunset with the Toon Rocketeer, Bill’s kits are the most satisfying kits to build and fly. Keep up the great work!
Keep creating great kits.
I love your models. In 2015, I have built and flown your 1911 Caudron, and am currently finishing the build of your Shaft 400. I purchased your Fullhouse for my winter project and was surprised to find your logo ball cap in the box. THANKS! It’s a first class cap – like your models and… Read more “Keep creating great kits.”
Lightyears ahead of everyone else in this niche.
LOVE your site, as well as the quality, attention to detail and passion that you put into all of your products and kits. You are lightyears ahead of everyone else in this niche and are the reason I got back into building! Thank you!
Well worth the money.
Thank you. I would just like to that I am building the little Sky Scout kit, and I have to say it is a very well thought out kit and one of the best I have ever built. I have been building and flying models for over sixty years and I was really amazed at… Read more “Well worth the money.”
The kits are of very high quality.
I built balsa planes from kits when I was a lot younger (Keil Kraft kits at the time) and I recently got back to building. I’m on my third Stevensaero kits, just completing the Archaeopteryx and have already ordered my next. The kits are of very high quality, well documented and fun to build –… Read more “The kits are of very high quality.”
Thanks again for the wonderful product.
Outstanding! I just finished the Fokker D7 and gave it a test flight. I had not worked with balsa since I was a kid(too many years ago). Yours is the best kit I have ever seen. I purposely took my time because it was so enjoyable and I especially liked the tips you gave in… Read more “Thanks again for the wonderful product.”
Highest Value for the Money!
I have built everything from the catapult launched ThunderChuck to the Pterodactyl and Frede 2X and in every case find the same commitment to quality, performance and customer satisfaction. Stevens provides the highest value for money, best materials, highest performing and eclectic mix of subjects on the market today.
Superb Engineering and Manufacturing!
As an engineer myself, I can’t say enough about the superb engineering and manufacturing quality of the Stevens AeroModel kits. I decided to get back in the hobby after way too many years. Purchased a couple of small ARF “beginners” planes with poor results at best. Almost gave up, but was inspired by reading a… Read more “Superb Engineering and Manufacturing!”
You guys are to be congratulated on the quality of your kits – outstanding!
