Here’s an explanation of what a short kit is, with pictures. You’ll have to complete the kit by buying your own sheet and stick wood from a balsa dealer. Here’s my best shot at explaining how to do this.
On some of my kits I have incorporated my own modifications, which I think the average builder would like. If you prefer your kit cut to original standard specs, let me know.
If you find a mysterious piece of wood in your kit that looks like this, it’s probably a dihedral gauge.
If you find an error in your kit, please let me know so I can fix it.

I’ve added a new product tag: Rob’s Favorites. These are planes that I have built myself some time between 1985 and now, which I found enjoyable either to build, to fly, or both.
