The De Havilland Vampire is a fully laminated model including engraving and plating, and is designed to be powered by an electric ducted fan or a small turbine.
The fuselage and wings are a one-piece construction and are laminated in a vacuum using Herex. During production, wing ribs, the main spar, parts for mounting the main landing gear and air ducts with a 90 mm recess for the blower were mounted into the fuselage. The wings contain reinforcement brackets for easy assembly of the fuselage onto the wings. The boom fuselage is made of fiberglass, which is drilled and threaded for easy attachment to the wings. The rear section is fitted with a drop in the tail elevator profile. Thanks to this solution, the existing midsection, two jibs and elevators are attached with the help of four plastic screws. This model comes standard with an ABS cockpit and seat, see-through cabin, a milled set of partitions, all parts and building instructions.
