The Auster AOP.9, designed to replace the Auster AOP.6, was a braced high-wing, single engined monoplane with a fixed tailwheel undercarriage.

Introduced in 1955 as a military observation aircraft (air observation post), it could operate from ploughed fields and muddy surfaces using low pressure tyres and strengthened undercarriage.

Used extensively by the Royal Air Force during Operation Firedog in Malaya.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original Veron Tru-Flite Series model of an Auster AOP.9.

Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method 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.

Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. 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.


Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
One 150mm diameter plastic propeller.
One pre-bent motor hook and shaft.
One low friction plastic nose bushing for the propeller
Pair of 22mm plastic wheels and one 10mm tail wheel.
Acetate sheet for cabin windows.

One motor peg.
F.A.I. 3/16" rubber motor strip.
Tissue to cover the model.
