Our kits are
designed with the the use of Computer
Aided Design (CAD) tools that allow him to produce an extremely accurate
set of drawings. These CAD drawings are not only accurate but
perfectly symmetrical, including all formers, cowls and ribs.
We have went through great pains to ensure that not only are the plans
drawn accurately, but also that the laser cut parts match the plans and
fit each other well. This extra mile ensures an enjoyable build with
some of the finest hand chosen balsa wood available

relies on Top Notch Products for their exceptional laser cutting. Top
Notch Products is located near us in central Tennessee, allowing us to closely monitor the laser cutting.
Our CAD generated patterns are directly fed into the laser cutter
as “cut files” making the process complete with Computer Aided
Manufacturing (CAM) on the laser. This
true CAD/CAM process ensures all parts fit each other and match the plans.
Buzz Trabbic personally
ensures that our kits are of exceptional quality.
Buzz’s process involves the extensive critique of all CAD plans
and proofing the kits before they are released.
Proofing involves the actual building of a pre-production laser cut
kit paying careful attention to part fit and ease of building.
Any changes needed are fed back to the original CAD drawn plans
ensuring that any small changes needed are incorporated into the entire
CAD/CAM process. This closed
loop process ensures that our kits are some of the finest available.
