West Wings Dornier Do335 Balsa Kit
UK Delivery: £2.99
Choosing the West Wings Dornier 335 gives you a twin with no vices.
Having both motors in line prevents asymmetric thrust problems and with each propeller rotating in opposition there are no 'torque' turning worries either. Flight stability comes from the power system, good wing section, wing dihedral and the substantial fin area. This really is a fabulous performer!!
The kit is supplied with two plastic propellers, but you can make your own 3-bladers from the supplied components. This is very easy to do and highly satisfying. The kit requires all formers to be cut from pre-printed sheets and as such, a little care and finesse is necessary. The fuselage 'shell' halves are then built up over the plan before being joined together at the end. Like all similar structures, the strength is derived from the tissue covering. Wings are conventional and each is built over the plan before 'butt' joining to the fuselage. Scale refinements such as exhaust stacks, carburettor scoops and the undercarriage are detailed on the plan, and a set of waterslide decals are provided for that finishing touch.
