Park Scale Model's mission has been to provide high quality, easy to build laser cut model kits at an affordable price. PSM owner Zeke Brubaker has a design philosophy that all models should be easy to construct for anyone with basic modeling skills, use low cost components, excellent flight characteristics, maintain scale outlines where possible, and incorporate scale detail.

All Park Scale Models designs are developed using state of the art 3D CAD modeling software and feature interlocking parts to ensure precise fit and alignment with no need to build over plans. Every kit is produced in the USA using high quality, hand selected wood from Balsa USA.

Novice and expert builders alike will appreciate the low cost, scale outlines and flying characteristics of the Park Scale Models© Whim Series™ aircraft. Simplified construction, low parts count and interlocking/self aligning design ensures building success even for the novice builder.

The Whim Series™ kits are engineered to build fast! You can have your plane built and ready to fly in as little as 10-12 hours. This means you get to spend less time building and more time flying. Plus, the "No Plans" construction means you can build virtually any time and any place you have a small flat, stable work surface! So you can build any time a "Whim" strikes you!

New pilots will appreciate the slow and stable flying characteristics. Durable all balsa construction and low weight help to minimize possible damage from flying mishaps. Should any damage occur, most repairs can be made in the field with some CA glue.

Experienced pilots will love doing up close low-n-slow fly-by's, shooting touch-n-go's and exploring the flight envelope with mild aerobatics like loops, spins and stall turns.

The hallmark of all Park Scale Models© designs has always been low total airframe cost and this extends to the Whim Series™ line of kits as well. Costs are kept low by utilizing low cost, conventional micro RC gear along with an innovative electronics tray that allows you to move the receiver and speed controller to any of the Whim Series™ airframes in a matter of minutes.

The Kawasaki Ki-61 was a Japanese World War II fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force. The first reports of encounters claimed the Ki-61s were Messerschmitt Bf 109s, further reports claimed that the new aircraft was an Italian design, this led to the Allied reporting name of "Tony" assigned by the United States War department, the Japanese Army designation was "Army Type 3 Fighter". It was the only mass produced Japanese fighter of the war to use a liquid cooled inline V engine. Over 3,000 Ki-61s were produced and the initial prototypes saw action over Yokohama during the Halsey-Doolittle raid on 18th April 1942 and they continued to fly combat missions throughout the war.

This model of the Kawasaki Ki-61 Tony captures the graceful lines and mean look of the full size airplane and the weathered, detailed finish will turn heads where ever you fly. The model has been designed around a .40~46 size 2 stroke or .61~70 4 stroke engines though equally at home with an equivalent size electric motor. It is supplied with fixed landing gear but it is easily converted to retracts, the wheel wells are already installed.

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 12:43:11 GMT <![CDATA[NEW PRODUCT: Team Associated RC12R5.2 Factory Team 1/12th scale Pan Car (Kit)]]> http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=62982

The RC12R5.2 Factory Team Kit takes the next evolutionary step in Associated's 35 years of 1:12 scale racing history. Applying what has been discovered while racing the RC12R5.1 and using the latest technologies, the RC12R5.2 was designed to further exploit every possible advantage where it counts most - on the race track.

The 12R5.2 keeps the concepts that already work very well. Arguably the best 1:12 front end design to date, the I.F.M.A.R. World Championship-winning Dynamic Strut front end features symmetrical components with adjustable caster and track width. The 12R5.2 further improves the already-proven front end by updating the lower control arms with more accurate mounting for a more precise build every time.

The 12R5.2 continues to use the wide three-point rear pod optimized for fitting brushless motors, but we have beefed up the rear blue aluminum bulkheads to maximize rigidity and durability. Tying the two bulkheads together is the new carbon fiber motor mount cross-brace to gain further rear end rigidity and durability.

The 12R5.2 is built on a ultra-rigid 2.5mm woven carbon fiber chassis that features a centralized LiPo battery mounting position fitting R.O.A.R.-approved 3.7V LiPo battery packs. Tying the rear end to the chassis is the pivot-ball link rear suspension, which allows for independent adjustments for chassis roll, bump, and alignment. New for the 12R5.2 are the refined aluminum side spring retainers that provide easier and more accurate suspension adjustments.

The 12R5.2's center shock uses the through-shaft design, giving equalized damping throughout the full stroke of the shock in both directions without any unwanted rebound. Roll is now controlled with the new side damper tubes that offer freer rear pod movement and easier maintenance. The 12R5.2 puts this all together for a rear end that hooks up and stays hooked up throughout the imperfections of the track surface, all making for faster lap times.

If you are a serious 1:12 scale racer looking for world-class performance, or if you just want to rule the class at your local track, either way, the RC12R5.2 is the no-compromise chassis that will get you there!

Features:
• I.F.M.A.R. World Championship-winning Dynamic Strut front end features symmetrical components with adjustable caster and track width, and includes updated lower control arms for more precise mounting
• Updated motor mount and left rear bulkhead for increased durability
• Brushless motor optimized 3-point upper pod plate with graphite motor mount cross-brace
• Ultra-rigid 2.5mm thick chassis featuring centralized LiPo battery mounting position that fits

1:10 scale 2WD off road has been Team Associated's signature racing class since the release of the original RC10 in 1984. The Team Associated RC10 buggy series has won eleven I.F.M.A.R. World Championships since the class began in 1985. It's the RC Car Action Readers' Choice for Electric Buggy and Editors' Choice for Car of the Year!

Use the right tool for the job.
The engineers in Team Associated's Area 51 designed the RC10B5M to specifically address the demands of racing on high-speed, high-grip tracks where the mid-motor chassis is at its best. The new suspension and chassis adjustments allow the platform to be tuned for both dirt and multi-surface while maintaining the forgiving driving style racers have become accustomed to with Team Associated vehicles.

No-compromise design.
The RC10B5M Team Kit utilizes a dedicated mid-motor chassis configuration, but still shares nearly 90% of the same parts as the rear-motor B5 Team Kit. The aluminum, hard-anodized chassis, gull wing front suspension arm geometry, Factory Team V2 threaded shocks, and Factory Team VTS slipper clutch are all standard features and give the RC10B5M the ultimate in performance.

Making the best even better.
The RC10B5M has all the makings of a champion, and with the proven performance from Team Associated, you're assured of support no matter where you go. If high-speed, high-grip tracks are your game, the B5M has what it takes to give you the winning advantage.

Features:
• Narrowed hard anodized aluminum chassis with centralized mass and mid-motor position for improved handling on high grip off road tracks
• Chassis accepts R.O.A.R.-approved 2S saddle packs and 2S short packs using the additional foam insert
• Factory Team V2 12mm Big Bore threaded aluminum shocks with 3mm shock shafts and updated O-rings for improved smoothness
• Factory Team VTS (Variable Torque multi-plate Slipper) with three drive surfaces and high-resolution spring
• New transmission has stronger gears, precision ball bearings, and a 14 carbide ball differential for increased life and torque capacity
• Adjustable front suspension mount angle (kick-up) options of 25 deg. and 30 deg.
• New gull wing front suspension features heavy-duty steering and caster blocks, while the insert system allows for easy caster and trailing axle adjustments
• One-piece front axle/hex adapter and larger front wheel bearing for added durability
• Updated full bearing steering system with horizontal ball studs for finer Ackermann adjustments
• Heavy-duty ball cups and ball studs allow for maximum suspension travel while reducing binding and friction
• Rear hubs feature larger bearings as well as the quick and easy insert system to adjust camber link position and rear toe-in
• B5M clear body and wing included

1:10 Scale 2WD Electric Off Road Competition Buggy Kit

1:10 scale 2WD off road has been Team Associated's signature racing class ever since the release of the original RC10 in 1984. The Team Associated RC10 buggy series has won eleven I.F.M.A.R. World Championships since the racing class began in 1985. It's the RC Car Action Readers' Choice for Electric Buggy and Editors' Choice for Car of the Year!

Making the best even better is not an easy task. However, the designers in Area 51 took on the challenge and not only made the B5 better, but they surpassed our expectations. Countless hours of engineering and testing were done with the focus on retaining the performance proven in the B4, while pushing the design to an even higher level.

The RC10B5 is built on a newly designed narrow tub chassis that keeps the mass centralized and balanced, improving rough track handling and overall performance. Factory Team parts like 12mm Big Bore threaded shocks and VTS slipper clutch come standard in the B5 Team Kit!

Welcome to the future - your RC10B5 Team Kit is waiting for you!

Build and race the first RC car with a 10-year winning tradition.

The RC10 World's Car buggy is the pinnacle of vintage RC10 buggy performance. The replica features modern-era upgrades while retaining the spirit of the original RC10 World's car that crowned Brian Kinwald as 2WD I.F.M.A.R. World Champion in 1993.

The new World's Car is equipped with updated V2 hard-anodized threaded shock bodies and aluminum adjustment collars to provide improved performance and adjustability.

The drivetrain now features the famous Stealth 3-gear transmission with a ball differential, CVA axles and V2 slipper to harness the power of modern brushless motors. A new durable plastic gear cover was added to protect the V2 slipper and gears. The included 2.2" wheels fit current 2WD buggy tires so racers can select the right tire for their track.

The RC10 World's Car kit updates make the buggy easier to build and service without altering the authentic look of the original car. The black hard-anodized machined chassis, trimmed front kick-up plate, black motor mount, and nose brace tubes look like the original parts.

Some plastic parts have been updated to improve durability, accept modern batteries and components, or increase performance. Color matched with the original World's car kits, these parts are backwards compatible with original cars.

Take a journey through time and drive a Team Associated RC10
World's Car - it's worlds better now than it was back then!

It comes with landing gear which they must think makes it the best model on the planet. Right now the price is showing as a mere $1,048.95c in AU dollars for some strange reason since I've never ever selected AU dollars at any time.
Kieran, I had a look after you said that about the hxt900 servos and it surprised me how many people do seem to be using them. I did try them but never flew with them. I wanted big throws and they just couldn't do it. I didn't think they were able to center consistently on it with the geometry and load on them. Up to you entirely of course and even if one fails you probably wont hurt the Teksumo much.]]>
