    I am building this as a static display. It has been along time since i have built one of these kit, but I am just about finished. The Lazor cut parts are really great.

    Good instructions if you’ve built these type before, if not, start with a Flyboy. The laser cut parts are amazing, almost no fitting required. Great price too! Best deal on Amazon for sure.

    I built this Guillows balsa wood plane like 40+ years ago. It would be classified mostly as a rubber powered balsa (so-called)”stick model” of sorts, though it could likely be powered by a small gas engine or nowadays, perhaps by electric and R/C means. As supplied, it is rubber (band like) powered. No engine (motor) is supplied other than a strip of rubber for the old school rubber powered flying free flight planes. If you want a gas or electric/Remote Control (R/C)powered plane, you will have to supply your is not in the kit. This is moreso crafts oriented…not all that simple to assemble, and supplies like glues, paints are not as readily available as they once were. But, it is a nice hobby, resulting in something you’ll be proud of….But watch out for mislabled, stock. The box shown in the picture here with the word Zero in the upper right is NOT laser cut balsa…it is die cut. The box with the laser cut item is different looking (check out makers web site) and has an insignia, in circular fashion that says laser cut.

    The aforementioned is important, and you’ll find transitional items from when mfr. changed from so-called die cut to laser. The laser cut version has parts which practically fall off the balsa sheets, making it so much easier, and the balsa seems lighter and thinner, and will likely result in a plane that will fly using rubber power if desired. (The one I built was too heavy to fly satisfactorily using rubber, so I just kept it for a long while as a static display piece. Watch carefully the outer box before you open shrink wrap. It MUST have some type of circular insignia on box front that says laser cut. Technically, box should also indicate the letters LC somewhere to indicate its laser cut, but this is not always shown, even though it may say so in ads! Misleading, yes….suspect some try to get rid of older die cut type stock. I’ve an odd ball one sitting in my closet for over a year. It’s in the newer type box but lacks that laser symbol. Reluctant on opening it, I called company and found there may have been some NOT laser cut, and without that circular laser symbol imprinted, nor any LC markings and was told likely some old ones were placed in the newer, but interim box, withOUT the laser circular symbol. Was told box likely contains old one, like kind I made over 40yrs ago! It used heavy-ish type balsa, strong, but likely not flight worthy on rubber motor supplied. So, short story long….watch the box. If you want laser, make sure it has that round symbol on front. Good luck.

    I did find the laser cut much easier, however I bought one directly from Guillows and the balsa wood was garbage. This one was a good set.

  5. Mike B.

    Laser cut is a great advantage from-older models, remember? Love to make my own changes and improvements for display, Guillow’s make nice kits but I wish they would expand their lineup and make lesser popular models.

  6. K. McGuire

    I’m into building scale model aircraft, and have enjoyed Guillow’s models. For a scale subject their ” Zero” has very good outlines. But their canopy is slightly larger than scale. It’s not their fault- they based their model on drawings that had it this way. All in all, it’s a very good model.

  7. JBshopper

    This is not a good model. The balsa wood is so fragile that I have spent more time gluing parts back together than building


    I’m 90% done on this build and it’s a great kit. My only suggestion is that you avoid using the balsa stringers that Guillows provides, and instead use basswood stringers (available at Hobby Lobby and other places). They are orders of magnitude stronger.
