Jack Devine Models started as another business in 1992.
Our goal was to provide light,
strong, easy to build and fly airplane kits with a scale looking outline.
You probably know that styrofoam airplane kits have been around a long time and
that styrofoam wings have been used in many kits, but very few kits use styrofoam
for fuselages. The reason we chose to use foam fuselages is because
we feel it is far superior to any other building material. Stick
built models are very weak in their construction and fiberglass can be too
heavy. Styrofoam is strong and extremely light. Our
building techniques make it even stronger! Here
in production phase, the
fuselages pieces are cut out in sections, joined in a special jig and then hollowed,
forming a pre-built square box
that runs the full length of the inside
of the fuselage. No formers are needed! The
result is a perfect fuselage that you DON'T have to build up, all you have to do
is sheet it and add your firewall, etc. !
In the building process, you will
sheet the outside of the fuselage with sixteenth inch
balsa wood. The hollow "box" inside the fuselage will also be sheeted
back to about the cockpit area and triangle stock is put
in all the corners. This makes a very strong yet
very light fuselage and leaves you plenty of room for your
radio. All control surfaces (wire channels,
servo bays, etc.) are pre-cut into the wings.
All wood pieces are high quality
plywoods and hardwoods and are stamped for easy
identification. Each kit includes a
fiberglass cowling, Lexan canopy and fiberglass wheel pants
(depending on the kit.) Most of the hardware and hinges you'll need for
framing up and installing surfaces and landing gear is included.
Building instructions are included
in our step-by-step video!
We are not just here to sell you a
kit. We are here to provide technical support as well. Feel
free to give us a call whether you purchased a kit from us or came to own one of
our kits some other way.
So, if you want a kit that is
affordable, easy to build, easy and fun to fly, contact
Jack Devine Models and give us a try. You'll be glad you did.
I look forward to talking with you and answering any questions you might have!
