Did you see James May’s Toy Stories on the BBC over Christmas and marvel at their fabulous record breaking flight across the Bristol Channel to the island of Lundy?
Although the team had to upscale and redesign the wings on the glider, the kit on which it was based is now available from our online shop.
The West Wings Slingsby Swallow kit is perfect as a starter model and a great way to introduce a youngster to the excitement of building and flying their first glider.
You can fit simple 2 channel radio or keep the glider as a pure free flight model – either way if you build it correctly it will reward you with superb flight.
Love him or hate him, James May seemed genuinely moved by the experience of flying the glider and some of the filming over the sea was truly stunning.
I don’t know about you, but I’m itching to build one now!
