This kit is from Belgium from around 1970. Wingspan is 59", plans call for .35 to .40 glow, ideal for electric conversion. The kit is complete and has full size plans. I started it, assembling the stab and fuselage sides, as seen in pics. Titebond was used on stab, epoxy to laminate fuselage. The balsa and die-cutting are first rate. Included is a Tatone .45-.60 motor mount and wheels and canopy.

Re: Vintage Balsa Kit - Svenson Sly Cat


Hi J, interesting old kit. I don’t see any wing ribs or leading or trailing edge pieces in the pictures? Is this kit complete to finish build? Cheers, Ian

Hi Ian,

The die-cut ribs are in the shorter/24" sheets next to the long balsa sheets - click on one of the buttons in your computer mouse to magnify the pictures.

Here is a link to an Outerzone copy of the plans and description of the kit:
https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=13058

Note that the model has ailerons and therefore would not have triangular trailing edge stock.

I built a similar Swenson kit some decades ago ..... it was an normal/easy build and the model had a lighter wing loads by the standards of the time.

regards,

A couple more pics.
The ribs are still in the die cut sheets. as per above. 26 ribs called for, 28 supplied.

The ailerons are made from 2 pieces of triangular balsa, as shown on plan.
