VERON AIR-O-JET

Penned by Phil Smith for the Veron Model Company in 1948, the Veron Air-O-Jet was a 30" span contest model, designed for use with a Jetex 100 unit.

According to Veron's advertising at the time, "The Air-O-Jet is easy and simple to build, yet extremely strong", with the original kit costing just 8/6!

We have now precision laser-cut the parts originally supplied as printwood, to make the build even easier than it was in 1948.

If you build one of these, we'd love to see the pictures - especially in flight. 

YOUR KIT

This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original Veron Air-O-Jet model.

Construction of the model from this kit uses traditional methods of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin.

The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.

Originally designed to be powered by a Jetex 100 motor unit that are no longer available new.

The model may be adapted to use an electric ducted fan (EDF).

Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".

This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.

KIT CONTENTS

Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
Acetate sheet for canopy.
Tissue to cover the model.
Full size printed plan with instructions.
