Giant-Scale sport-scale Laird-Turner R/C model kit Price: $375.00
With the Jack Devine Laird-Turner
model, much of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box
and finding a fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't
have to imagine what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame
is done, the shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow

faster every time!
