RBC T-33 90mm Kit

The Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star (or T-Bird) is an American subsonic jet trainer. It was produced by Lockheed and made its first flight in 1948. The T-33 was developed from the Lockheed P-80/F-80 starting as TP-80C/TF-80C in development, then designated T-33A. It was used by the U.S. Navy initially as TO-2, then TV-2, and after 1962, T-33B. The last operator of the T-33, the Bolivian Air Force, retired the type in July 2017, after 44 years of service.

This easy-to-build kit will create a great-looking jet that is easy to repair.  The RBC kit features a construction of balsa, plywood, and abs plastic to make an easy-to-build/repair kit that has great flying characteristics. The kit contains all parts cnc cut including all wood to finish the T-33 T-Bird.  A large clear cad drawing is also included and also a vacuum-formed canopy and nose cone.
