    Back into the hobby ofter 20 years. Shocked to find so many imported foamies out there and very few balsa kits (USA made) on the market. I was lucky enough to find Alien Aircraft, ordered and built the Stearman PT-17, what a joy! Just ordered the Corsair and can’t wait to get started. For anyone looking to build, these kits get an eleven on a scale of ten. Nothing can match the feeling of building a plane from a kit then taking off for the first time! I did buy a cheap foamy to touch up the flying skills as there would be no love lost if I crash the import.
