Precision Laser Cut Parts:  

Included in every Old School Model Works kit are all the wing ribs, fuselage formers, and other wood needed to build the aircraft.

Interlocking parts

We've engineered each kit to give you the best chance of success. Each laser-cut part interlocks with the next for an accurate and secure joint.

Rolled Plans

Each of our kits contains a set of rolled plans, never folded. They are full-size, highly detailed, and computer-drawn for accuracy.

WEB-LOCK Wing Construction

Our exclusive wing design and construction techniques give you everything you need to easily build a straight and true wing with a minimum amount of fuss.

Illustrated Instructions

A step by step manual with plenty of photo illustrations is included in each kit. We also provide links to online, clear, hi-rez photos for each step

Pre-Bent Landing Gear

Bending your own landing gear is hard. So that's why we include pre-bent main landing gear wire ready for you to assemble.

Old School Model Works Sunday Fighter Bristol Spadport (British) Kit

Yup, they've gone and done it. OSMW now has a biplane kit. Actually, they're gonna have two, but more on that later.

This is the first of our Sunday Fighters. The original Sunday Fighters were the brainchild of Ken Willard back in the early 1970's. His were small, .049 powered 3-channel models and proved quite popular. Now, we've taken this idea, enlarged, and re-engineered them to make them as much fun to build as they are to fly. There's a bit of Bristol, and maybe some Spad, and for good measure you might detect some Nieuport. So we refer to this one as the Bristol Spadport.

Fast, but not too fast. Maneuverable, but not tricky. A snap to build and surprisingly rugged compared to most. You should see them take evasive maneuvers in Dog Fighting. Evade with snap rolls into spins, Immelmann turns and a loop. OSMW's radio-controlled Sunday Fighter airplane kits just might be the most fun you've had in a long time.

Whether you choose to power your Sunday with electric or glow power, we've got you covered. Glow engines can be mounted side, inverted or even upright with a little modification. Electric motors can be mounted using the included Motor Box which will help space your motor to the proper distance.

Go true "old-school" with 3 channel control, or opt for functional ailerons (4 channel).

Specifications:

Wingspan: 46.5 inches

Wing Area: 725 sq inches

Length (airframe only): 34 inches

Weight: 3.5 - 4 pounds

Radio: 3-4 channel system

Power:

o Glow (.20-.30 engine, 6 ounce tank, fuel tubing)

o Electric (equivalent brushless motor, 3s LiPo)

Premium USA Hardware Included in each Old School Model Works kit is a premium hardware package. We only source our hardware from brand-name, USA manufacturers to guarantee the best quality.

Dual Ailerons Mounted under the lower wing, these two pre-cut aileron hatches make it easy to install the aileron servos.

WEB-LOCK Construction There's nothing else like it. Build our wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss.

Bolt On Main Gear Bending your own landing gear is hard. So that's why we include pre-bent main landing gear wire ready for you to assemble.

Front Hatch Held in with magnets, this xtra hatch gives you easy access to batteries or fuel.

Included Motor Box For electric power, we include the pieces to build this electric motor mounting box.
 

Additional items needed to complete our Sunday Fighter kit:

o Propeller o Engine/Motor mount & mounting hardware

o "Y" servo harness (for ailerons)

o Pushrods (two 5" for ailerons, two 20" for elevator & rudder, one 9" for throttle if glow powered)

o Clevises for the pushrods (8 if electric, 10 if glow).

o 2 - 3.5" diameter wheels. We recommend Du-Bro's #350V Vintage wheels for the proper look.

o 1 - tailwheel assembly o Covering

Due to high demand, please allow 1-2 weeks for shipment, thank you!

Old School Model Works Sunday Fighter (One-O Nine) Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image



Old School Model Works Sunday Fighter (One-O Nine) Kit

"Never fly straight or you'll be a dead duck."

Fast, but not too fast. Maneuverable, agile and responsive - but not tricky. A snap to build - and with a fully sheeted airframe, surprisingly rugged compared to most.

Don't let the lack of landing gear scare you. Hand launching is easy because of the fuselage's light weight and strengthened design. In the air, it really looks the part without any exposed gear to detract from its clean lines. Bringing the One-O-Nine in for a belly landing on grass is just as easy.

You should see them take evasive maneuvers in Dog Fighting. Evade with snap rolls into spins, Immelmann turns and a loop.
OSM's One-O-Nine kit is part of our Sunday Fighter lineup and just might be the most fun you've had in a long time.

 


 

Because of the interlocking design and high quality laser cutting of the parts, the Sunday Fighter is a quick build. Not only does it build quick, but it also builds straight and true as all of the parts are designed to align properly with a minimum of fuss and alignment tools.

The wing is removable for storage/transport and for giving access to the radio/servo area. From there you have easy access to install most any brand of radio and control linkages.

What's more, the fully assembled model can fit in the trunk of most cars.

 

Although mainly designed for electric power, you can also use a .25-sized glow engine as well. Glow engines are side mounted. Electric motors are mounted on the "extended" firewall to space the motor the proper distance forward.

When assembled, you now have a blank canvas and can apply any number of color schemes, or make up your own.

In the air, the One-O Nine is a blast to fly. A simple hand-launch gets it airborne, then you can cruise quite easily and 1/2 power. Throttle up for loops, eights, snaps, spins, hammerhead turnaounds - or maybe a screaming low-level pass, right down the runway. When you're ready to land, simply throttle back and gently bring the One-O Nine in for a belly landing on the grass.

This is just one design in our growing Sunday Fighter series.

Specifications:
Wingspan: 44.5 inches
Wing Area: 330 sq inches
Length (airframe only): 39 inches
Weight: 2.75 - 3.25 pounds

Old School Model Works Lark Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image



Old School Model Works Lark Kit

Trainer-like stability. Sport-Pattern performance. Quick and easy to build. What's not to love?!

Designed as a first low-wing trainer over five decades ago the Lark is still a terrific, everyday sport plane. OSM's version of the Lark keeps all of the iconic looks and great flying characteristics of the original. Plus, because it combines docile flight characteristics, trainer-like stability and an aptitude for super-smooth, exciting aerobatics, the Lark is just what you need to step forward with your flying ability.

OSM's kit has been designed to keep building time to a minimum and introduces new, simplified building features as well as laser-cut precision and self-aligning parts to make this all-time favorite even better. Building the wing and stab are a snap as all of the ribs include tabs which allow you to quickly and precisely align them on your building board. Did we say stab ribs? Why yes we did, as we integrated the original airfoil shaped stab into this design as well. The fuselage is built around a self-aligning, light-weight box for added strength. Surrounding this is the outer balsa skin that is strong, light-weight and twist resistant. Importantly, this balsa/ply airframe is uncomplicated, lightweight, easy to build, and features precision laser-cut parts that fit together quickly and accurately.




Power can come from glow or electric powerplants. We've designed the fuselage with a magnetic top hatch so you have quick access to either your fuel tank or batteries.



In the air, the Lark is an aerobatic, yet forgiving design that makes it the perfect entry-level low wing airplane. It's also great for experienced pilots because it packs a fully aerobatic capable design into a small package that can fit in the trunk of many cars, completely assembled.

When flying at slower speeds, it's a great way to relax, shoot touch-n-goes and enjoy low passes down the runway. But throttle it up and the Lark is just at home as an entry-level sport-pattern ship. Loop it. Roll it. Thrown in some Cuban 8's and even some hammerhead turns for fun and you'll enjoy every minute of it.
This Old School Model Work's Lark is a Vintage R/C Society legal design for enjoying vintage fly-ins and contests.


Features:
Premium USA Hardware Included in each Old School Model Works kit is a premium hardware package. OSM only sources their hardware from brand-name, USA manufacturers to guarantee the best quality.

Old School Model Works Bat Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image


Old School Model Works Bat Kit

Turn. Twist. Evade. Attack!

Our Bat is simplicity and excitement all at the same time. It is based off a 1970's World Engines kit and is a lot of fun to fly alone. But it's tons of fun to fly in groups. Thanks to precision laser-cutting, and the low parts count, this allows you to completely assemble the airframe in just a few hours.

 



Between the twin fins, there is an expansive internal area to allow in the installation of a variety of radio gear, as well as batteries (or fuel tank). This is all accessible via three hatches - the two servo hatches and a center hatch with a quick-release latch setup.



Parts are included to build the Bat with either an electric or glow powerplant. And it's one of the few designs in our lineup where you can overpower a little it without too much extra work.



We've had great fun with the recommended power systems, but as long as you keep a good eye on the C.G. (and lateral balance) you can strap on a little more power and streak through the skies. Obviously, some common sense needs to be applied here, but the structure is strong and can withstand a little overpowering with no problems.

Old School Model Works Wayfarer Kit

An easy-flying 2-meter glider for when you want to slow things down for a while. 

Whether you prefer power-assisted take-offs, high-starts, or slope soaring, this easy-to-build glider is the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.


We've gone the extra mile to ensure that the Wayfarer is as easy to build as it is to fly. There's a wealth of laser-cut balsa and plywood parts that go together straight and true. Laser-cutting even extends to the wing sheeting giving you the perfect fit.

A wing that is 2-meters long can be tough to transport so we've designed the Wayfarer's wing as two, plug-in panels.

As a bonus, we've also included all the parts needed to make the removable power pod.

Old School Model Works Fifty Six Kit

Your Dad raved about it. So did your Uncle, your Grandpa, and most of the members in your club.

Now you can experience one for yourself.

Since the early 70's, more of these have been built and flown than most any other R/C design. It's an all-time favorite R/C trainer and sport design. It's fondly remembered because it's so easy to build and to gentle to fly.

Our version of the Fifty Six keeps all of the iconic look and great flying characteristics, and introduces new, simplified building features, as well as laser-cut precision - making this all time favorite even better.

 

Building the wing and stab are a snap as all of the ribs include tabs which allow you to quickly and precisely align them on your building board. Did we say stab ribs? Why yes we did, as we integrated the original airfoil shaped stab into our design as well.

What's more, doing it this way keeps it faithful to the original design and since the Fifty Six is also a trainer, it gives the wing that extra bit of movement needed to help avoid breakage during those not-so-perfect landings.

Power can come from glow or electric powerplants. We've designed the fuselage with a magnetic top hatch so you have quick access to either your fuel tank or batteries.

Old School Model Works Kaos 60 Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image




Old School Model Works Kaos 60 Kit

The original Kaos is back, and better than ever.

Back in 1970, the February issue of RCM magazine featured a construction article of a design that took the pattern world by storm. This revolutionary design was the brainchild of Joe Bridi and it went on to be one of the most successful pattern and sport models of all time.

This outstanding, contest-winning model was the Kaos and we've based our kit on that same original design, updating it's construction with laser-cut precision, yet keeping all of the outstanding flying characteristics that made the original a legend.

In addition to our unique WEB-LOCK wing construction, this kit also includes a wing jig which makes assembling this triple-tapered wing a snap. Using our techniques, you'll quickly build a wing that's accurate and true - it just so easy to build!

 

 

The fuselage is built around a self-aligning, light-weight box for added strength. Surrounding this is the outer balsa skin that is strong, light-weight and twist resistant even when performing high-stress maneuvers. Overall, this balsa/ply airframe is uncomplicated, lightweight, easy to build, and features precision laser-cut parts that fit together quickly and accurately.

The wing is removable via 2 bolts from the bottom of the fuselage and utilizes a dual-servo setup for accurate aileron control. The wing's thick symmetrical airfoil coupled with the fuselage's long tail moment create a neutrally stable plane. Power can come from glow or electric powerplants. We've designed the fuselage with a magnetic top hatch so you have quick access to either your fuel tank or batteries.

Because of the Kaos' simple, clean design, it's a pattern plane you'll instantly feel comfortable flying. What's more, you'll become a better pilot because the Kaos let's you concentrate on technique, not distractions like pipes and retracts.

Our Old School Model Work's Kaos 60 is a Senior Pattern Association and Vintage R/C Society legal design for vintage and retro pattern competitions.

Old School Model Works German Sunday Fighter Bristol Heinschmitt Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image




Old School Model Works German Sunday Fighter Bristol Heinschmitt Kit

"Achtung! Come fight mit me!"

Fast, but not too fast. Maneuverable, but not tricky. A snap to build and surprisingly rugged compared to most. The original Sunday Fighters were the brainchild of Ken Willard back in the early 1970's. His were small, .049 powered 3-channel models and proved quite popular. Now, we've taken this idea, enlarged, and re-engineered them to make them as much fun to build as they are to fly.

You should see them take evasive maneuvers in Dog Fighting. Evade with snap rolls into spins, Immelmann turns and a loop. Our radio-controlled Sunday Fighter airplane kits just might be the most fun you've had in a long time. 

Because of the interlocking design and high quality laser cutting of the parts, the Sunday Fighter is a quick build. Not only does it build quick, but it also builds straight and true as all of the parts are designed to align properly with a minimum of fuss and alignment tools.

The wings are removable for storage/transport and for giving access to the extra large cabin area. From there you have easy access to install most any brand of radio and control linkages. However, the fully assembled model can fit in the trunk of most mid-sized cars.

Up-front, we've designed in a hatch that covers the battery/tank compartment. This area will easily handle 3s packs and 6 ounce tanks.

Whether you choose to power your Sunday with electric or glow power, we've got you covered. Glow engines can be mounted side, inverted or even upright with a little modification. Electric motors can be mounted using the included Motor Box which will help space your motor to the proper distance.

Go true "old-school" with 3 channel control, or opt for functional ailerons (4 channel).

There are two Sunday Fighters - the German version you see here, and the British version you can see at this link.

Specifications:

Wingspan: 46.5 inches

Wing Area: 725 sq inches

Length (airframe only): 34 inches

Weight: 3.5 - 4 pounds

Radio: 3-4 channel system

Power:

o Glow (.20-.30 engine, 6 ounce tank, fuel tubing)

o Electric (equivalent brushless motor, 3s LiPo)

Premium USA Hardware

Included in each Old School Model Works kit is a premium hardware package. We only source our hardware from brand-name, USA manufacturers to guarantee the best quality.

Dual Ailerons Mounted under the lower wing, these two pre-cut aileron hatches make it easy to install the aileron servos.

WEB-LOCK Construction There's nothing else like it. Build our wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss.

Bolt on main gear Bending your own landing gear is hard. So that's why we include pre-bent main landing gear wire ready for you to assemble.

Front hatch Held in with magnets, this extra hatch gives you easy access to batteries or fuel.

Included Motor Box For electric power, we include the pieces to build this electric motor mounting box.

Design your color scheme Download this sheet to design your Heinschmitt's color scheme.

Additional items needed to complete our Sunday Fighter kit:

o Propeller

o Engine/Motor mount & mounting hardware

o 2-5 servos depending on setup: 2 mini for elevator/rudder, 2 Sub-Micro for ailerons/throttle

o "Y" servo harness (for ailerons)

o Pushrods (two 5" for ailerons, two 20" for elevator & rudder, one 9" for throttle if glow powered)

o Clevises for the pushrods (8 if electric, 10 if glow).

o 2 - 3.5" diameter wheels. We recommend Du-Bro's #350V Vintage wheels for the proper look.

o 1 - tailwheel assembly

Old School Model Works Mambo Kit

Now that you know how to fly, it's time to learn how to build.

The Mambo is different than any of our other kits in the fact that it's engineered from the get-go to be easy to build for the first time builder. Now don't confuse this with a trainer model, but rather it's aimed at modelers who are bored with their RTF trainer, or maybe those who have been flying for years and are looking to build a kit for the first time.

Using precision, laser-cut, interlocking parts along with our unique WEB-LOCK construction and built-in alignment jigs, the Mambo can be built straight and true - using a minimum parts count and a minimum amount of fuss.

Included in each Mambo kit are full-sized rolled plans, a printed construction manual, pre-bent main gear, and a premium hardware package from brand-name, USA manufacturers (DuBro, Sonic-Tronics, and others) to guarantee the best quality. Also included is a clear, pre-formed plastic canopy.

Power can be from either electric or glow. The fuselage has a large, built-in hatch, securely held in place with magnets giving you quick access to either your batteries or fuel tank.

Also, we've designed it to readily accept the powerplant, radio and other accessories from several popular RTF trainers, such as Horizon's Apprentice S® and 15e®. Simply remove their motor, ESC and radio from that kit and it an easily be used with our Mambo.

This all-around sport model's retro design looks great in the air and makes you look like an ace pilot. Loop it, roll it, spin it, snap it, and just have a great time flying it.

What's more is you can cover and finish your Mambo like you want, rather than being stuck with a "me-too" offering that look exactly the same as the others at your local field.

Whether you like gentle cruising, or prefer to tear up the sky, the Mambo's wide flight envelope makes it a blast to fly!

Old School Model Works Quickie 500 Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image

Old School Model Works Quickie 500 Kit

We've brought back a quick way to turn left & left & left & left. 

And, it also turns right! The story behind the original "Quickie 500" dates back to 1971 when several members of the B.A.R.K.S. (Bakersfield Aircraft Radio Kontrol Society) approached one of their members (Glen Spickler) to see if he was interested in drawing up a one design club racer. What the fellows wanted was a simple "40-size" airplane that would be economical to build and easy to fly. The idea sounded interesting, so out came the drawing board, paper, pencils and a large sized eraser. A model for just one purpose has a limited appeal, so it seemed only sensible that the "Quickie" should also be capable of the everyday fun flying that the majority of Radio Control modelers enjoy, The success of this approach has been proven by the number of "Quickies" built by non-racing modelers who fly the ship in all types of club contests, decade after decade.

 

  

 

Don't let the fact that the "Quickie 500" was designed for racing dissuade you from building one. It's a rugged, easy to fly model that can do most of the stunt patterns and with an ability to slow down for landings which will surprise you. It points well on the straight-away and has no tendency to snap roll in the corners. No matter how slow you fly, the ailerons will show no tendency to reverse or quit working. You can be sure that the "Quickie" is a well-proven design, capable of giving many hours of pleasure whether it be club racing or just barnstorming around. We certainly don't consider the "Quickie 500" a trainer, but anyone who has advanced to the aileron stage shouldn't have any problems with it. Give it a try, it's a fun airplane!

 

 

The "Quickie 500" is at its best when built as a club project. Try to get some of your friends to build them too. Then have a ball play racing or just have fun tearing up the sky!

Specifications:

Wingspan: 51 inches

Wing Area: 510 square inches

Length (airframe only): 37.25 inches

Weight: 3.5 - 4.25 pounds

Radio: 4 channel system

Power: o .25-.46 glow engine, or equivalent electric power system.
