AUSTER J/4

 The Auster J/4 first flew in 1946 and was a relatively unpopular, single-engined, two seater built in the UK by Auster Aircraft Limited.

Originally fitted with a 90hp Blackburn Cirrus Minor 1 engine, only 27 J/4 aircraft were built.

The aircraft does make for an excellent rubber-powered model however, with its high wing and lightweight design offering an interesting and unusual alternative to to the Piper Cubs and Cessnas you see everywhere.

This model is a rework of the original Aerographics balsa wood kit of the Auster J/4. We've completely revamped the design, from the instructions to the cut parts, to provide you with a great building experience from start to finish.

Please note: this is not a model for a beginner and requires a fair amount of both patience and skill to complete.

Inside the box you will find all of the materials you will need to create a superbly detailed 23" flying model of the Auster J/4. Although designed for rubber power, the kit includes parts to help you build an electric motor powered, radio controlled version (the motor and electronics are not included!).
