Simplebuild Airframe Kit

Monolithic pressure and oven molding with certified aircraft epoxy used on all composite components. Carbon/Glass/Kevlar composites are primed and filled in mold to eliminate porosity and minimize finish work prior to final paint. All hardware is AN, stainless, plated or painted. Step by step manuals with outlines, hints, notes, CAD assembly drawings and photos will be provided on CD with updates on the web. (Hard copy available on request)  Part documentation and trace ability is similar to certified aircraft.

Centerbody Kit
