now in the UK - 11/4/12
The Hacker range of models is now distributed by Area 51 in the UK and available direct or via model shops.
Mostly EPP foam, the range includes five 840mm span Reno racers such as this Bearcat, 550mm span mini racers, 840mm span warbirds, 1m and 1.2m aerobats, a 1.2m Cub, chuck gliders, flyings wings in various sizes and lots more.
EPP may have its detractors but the material's durability isn't in question - these models are nicely finished and made in the Czech Republic. The kits include all hardware and instructions and, with a cheap electric set-up, the Reno racers themselves would make a perfect model for club competitions and pylon racing.
