About

Founded in 1989 by Don Reed, Micro-Scale Models designs, manufactures, packages and sells Scale Model Kits and Custom Built Models. Don Reed's 130+ model kits are among the finest in the world.  Today, as in 1989, Micro-Scale Models manufactures almost every component for each new kit using precision laser cutters manufactured in the United States.  In 2014 we are turning our attention to the sky producing a line of easy to assemble laser-cut flying model kits. The first in the series is the Super Ringmaster. Micro-scale models is producing these kits in association with Bob Clauss who was a designer at the former Sterling model co. The symmetrical wing is one of Bob’s original designs.

In a world full of people who are generally pressed for time, taking time to relax, create and play is important.The Super ringmaster kits are packed full of time saving design features. All of the structural pieces in these kits are laser-cut. The Super Ringmasters wing has been designed to be rugged, easy to assemble and balanced. The 3/16" wing spars are laser-cut, numbered and notched to interlock with the laser-cut wing ribs. The trailing edges then interlock with the wing ribs squaring the wing.  All opposing wing parts are cut from the same piece of balsa wood to ensure the wing is balanced. Every laser-cut piece in these kits is marked making assembly a snap!
