What's New

November 10, 2014

Our new Mig-17 is scheduled to appear in the February 2015 issue of Model Airplane News. Short kits are now available.

December 14th, 2011

Our Gloster Meteor is out in the January 2012 issue of Model Aviation. ALso, we have updated out website to calculate the actual shipping costs for all of our kits. The USPS has raised rate several times since we started shipping kits, and we could no longer absorb the extra cost.

September 12th, 2010

Our 45" Span Waco YMF-5 is scheduled to appear in the November, 2010 issue of Flying Models magazine. As soon as this issue hits the news stands, we'll have short kits available. You will still need to buy the plans directly from Flying Models Magazine.

April 13th, 2010

Our Gloster Meteor took 3nd place in the Jet category at the 2010 Toledo show! Many thanks to Keith Shaw, Bob Walker, Larry Markey, and Howard Kendall for their help in getting this project done in time.  Stay tuned for the flight reports in the coming months.

February 13th, 2010

We have update our website with PayPal buttons to simplify ordering. PDF's of all manuals are available for download so you can see what you are getting into. Links are on each kit's page or all links on the download page. Also we have put together a comprehensive set of Terms and Conditions. The purpose of these is to protect both us and you when purchasing our kits.

December 11th, 2009

The wait is over, our LTR-14 Turner Special is now in the December issue of Model Aviation. Short kits are now available and shipping.

We have updated our website to offer one click ordering of our kits through PayPal. Please let us know if there are any problems with this new system. As always, we will happily accept personal checks.

September 27th, 2009

The wait is almost over, our LTR-14 Turner Special should be appearing in the December Issue of Model Aviation magazine. As soon as it hits the news stands we'll have short kits available. Shortly after that, our Wedell-Williams Model 44 will be appearing in Flying Models magazine. Watch for these two new models.

February 6th, 2009

T&J Models will be sharing a booth at Toledo with Retro R/C. We will have special pricing on all of our kits, so come check us out in person in April.

November 8th, 2008

We have cast new plugs for the B-29 parts and are now able to offer a complete kit with nose, nacelles, plans, and instructions. Please check out the B-29 page for more information.

June 2, 2008

Our little Waco YMF-5 is now available as a complete short kit with plans, photo illustrated construction manual, and laser cut parts.

January 13, 2008

Our little Waco YMF-5 will be featured as a construction article in the March, 2008 Flying Models magazine. We will start offering laser cut parts to go with the plans that will be available from Flying Models.

July 6, 2007

Our new LTR-14 Turner Special was chosen as the best pro-civilian model in the first Scale Model Build-Off on R/C Groups.com.  We'd like to thank all those who voted for us, it means a lot.  You can see the build thread here.  The plans are being cleaned up and prepared for publishing. The Turner Special came in a bit heavier than planned, but it does not appear to hurt the performance. It is a good all around sport plane and it slows down fine for landings.

Our new 1/12 scale Waco YMF-5 is flying now and it is also being prepared for publishing. The Waco has turned out to be a very gentle flyer.  The slide out battery tray works great and makes changing the battery a snap. Final weight came in at 15oz, and with the AstroFlight Geared 010 and 3S TP1320 Lipo pack it will fly for over 20 minutes.

March 28, 2007

The DH-88 Comet short kit is now available. The plans are available from Model Airplane News (plan #FSP0407A).

We have two new projects nearing completion; a 1/12 scale Waco YMF-5 and a 1/6 scale Laird-Truner Special (LTR-14). Stay tuned for more information as these new creations take flight.

December 5, 2006

We have just received word that our de Havilland DH-88 Comet is scheduled to be published in the April 2007 Model Airplane News. So, your wait is nearing an end. We will have short kits including laser cut parts and a vacuum formed canopy available when it hits the news stands.

We are now able to provide the plans to go along with our Hughes H-1 short kit. A new illustrated construction manual will also be included with all kits.

October 14, 2006

We have improved our H-1 short kit with the addition of a new laminated cowl. This greatly reduces the shape and sanding required. Notches are integrated into the cowl for hard wood mounting blocks to make installing the firewall a snap.  This will be included in all new kits and is available for current kit builders for US $10.00 (Includes shipping).

September 25, 2006

T&J Models has teamed up with Vinyl Graphics by Greg to bring you decals for our model designs. We have worked with Greg and sent him CAD files of all the call numbers and markings for the Hughes H-1 Racer and three variants of the DH-88 Comet. Greg uses a high quality, self-adhesive vinyl and they come ready to apply. Please contact Greg for more details and specify "T&J Models H-1", "Comet Grosvenor House", "Comet the Green One", or "Comet Black Magic" when ordering.  These are just the things to finish off your little piece of history.

September 17, 2006

It has just been brought to our attention that the Hughes H-1 plans being printed by the AMA are missing the front windshield template. You can download a pdf file with the missing information here.

Many thanks to The E-Zone on-line magazine and R/C Groups for hosting this website.

This is our first attempt at a website, and we think it came out pretty good. Jonas John created an very nice CSS template that we started with.  We appreciate any feedback you have on how we can make it better.
