Based in New Zealand they appear to still be in business.

Steve Webb Models advertise the full range of 22 kits including the Autogyro.

Falcon Models in New Zealand produce vacform canopies for plastic scale model kits.

Falcon Models that used to make R/C kits in the UK are out of business and if you look at the Steve Webb listing,most kits are either discontinued or out of stock.

David,

I have built this kit and probably have the plan stashed away somewhere. But if I'm honest its not the best flying model and needs modifying to fly anything reasonable.

One of my old friends who is no longer with us designed a far better machine of which I'm sure the Falcon gyro was a copy of. The Minimum is a great flier and designed by someone who knew what they were doing, unfortunately the aerobalsa blades to which it flies on are no longer available. That said Atom or Cruiser blades should fit the bill perfectly and are easy to make.

Plans for the Minimum are HERE, if you need any assistance with the build just post away.

Rich
