A short kit includes the parts that need to be cut to a specific shape, but it does not include hardware, landing gear, or generic sheet and stick stock, such as wing sheeting, spars, etc. You’re a scratch builder and I’m a guy who cuts out the complicated parts for you. Our laser cutter does a good job cutting plywood up to 1/8″ thick. Anything thicker than that ends up looking like a charred cookie. We will CNC cut any 1/4″ and 3/16″ ply parts. Please see kit notes for details. Similarly, 3/8″ balsa takes a pretty severe beating in the laser cutter, so will most likely be cut on our CNC router.
