Hi chaps just wanted to give a Thank You and big thumbs up to SLEC.

I’m building their very nice 80in Chipmunk kit and found that the balsa leading edge strips were slightly incorrect width. While it wasn’t a disaster it was a bit of a pain as l didn't have any similar stock to replace them with and didn’t want to join two bits.

Anyway one call to SLEC and they couldn’t be more helpful. The next morning they sent the correct size pieces plus one spare 😊👍.

I really like this firm . They are really helpful plus they support many shows etc .

Great company. I'm lucky in that they are, but a pleasant toodle from me and after shopping there I can call at the excellent burger van on the corner, for lunch and have a nose round the company that build and restore GT40s and Cobras, next door.

I've been several times over the years, but never noticed the cars before. Probably kit cars/replicas, but still nice to look at, apart from the Porsches<G>

I would like to relate my recent experiences with sorting out a wood pack, canopy and materials.

  • Email correspondence was excellent with fast and knowledgeable replies
  • Very useful discussions with Chris regarding drawings, rescaling and wood selection
  • Having never made a canopy plug, supply of wood, advice and phone help. Finishing touches by Roy

Its worth the hour and twenty minute drive to see them and get things sorted. For example my canopy plug was dropped off last Friday, the first canopy for approval arrived Monday. A couple of additions by me and the finished article arrived on Thursday. Wow

And Inwoods is on the way back...

Top marks to the SLEC team, ordered some balsa Sunday night and delivered Tuesday PM. Okay not the most economic way, but good quality and it made it through the Christmas parcel chaos. Well packed and no damage.

Seasonal Greetings and well done SLEC Team
