Designed by Wsiewołod Jakimiuk and introduced as a replacement for the de Havilland Tiger Moth in 1946, the DH Chipmunk was a tandem, two seat, single-engined trainer aircraft used by air forces all over the world until its retirement in 1972.

Countless RAF pilots learned to fly in the Chipmunk as it proved to be safe, reliable and with great aerobatic ability.

More than 500 Chipmunks are still in operation today in civilian guise.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Small Flying Scale Series model of a de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk.

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 canopy.
Piano wire for the main undercarriage and tail wheel.
One motor peg.
F.A.I. 3/16" rubber motor strip.
Tissue to cover the model.
Full size printed plan with instructions.

Please Note: The model pictured above is a KK de Havilland Chipmunk converted to electric-powered, radio-control and covered with tissue/ markings by John Watters. These are not included in the kit!
