There’s something about these classy polyhedral / pylon ships of yesteryear that just strike a chord with old timer enthusiasts world-wide. Though there were hundreds of iterations of the basic pylon design that circulated through the budding model airplane industry, most enthusiasts seem to identify with the Playboy which saw prolific distribution through Cleveland Models. Our Playmite design is directly inspired by this iconic model and, while reminiscent of those bygone years, offers a modern package that builds quick, straight, and true thanks to modern design and tooling processes pioneered by Stevens AeroModel.
Quality American components and manufacturing, our Playmite kits are derrived from only the finest AAA balsa and hardwood components sourced from state-side mills and cut in-house at our Colorado facility. Unique in this size offering, the Playmite features a double-surfaced airfoil and removable shock mounted wing enhancing both the crafts penetration and glide performance. Beautiful throughout, our design captures the nostalgic good looks of the subject matter and incorporates the kind of thoughtful engineering and attention to detail that scores of modelers have come to expect from a Stevens AeroModel kit. Designed for success, in addition to every supplied part being precisely laser-cut and engineered to fit, the entire assembly is thouroughly covered by a step-by-step photo illustrated assembly manual; clearly leading the novice builder through kit construction, finishing, and ultimately flying the completed model. Your time is valuable, and we are certain you’ll agree our Playmite (75) delivers the kind of time saving interlocking construction, detailed documentation, quality materials, and manufacturing your hobby investment deserves. Exclusively from Stevens AeroModel.
