Due to personal circumstances, I cannot offer any of the kits for sale until my health improves. However, if you are interested in any of the models - colourful proven flyers all, also suitable for catapult launch - I am happy to offer PDF templates of all the jets, which are not available anywhere else. These templates can be printed out on T-shirt paper and transferred to balsa.
Please contact me directly if you are interested, or talk to me at meetings - I'm usually the guy with a Jetex org T-shirt, now, alas, in a wheelchair..
I can also offer a number of Jetex/Rapier related publications. These include reprints of articles by Roger Simmonds, old and new, plans/templates for rocket powered jet models, and part kits for profile and semi-profile scale models suitable for both young and experience aeromodellers.
Please note a DVD of the atricles is produced to order, and will normally be dispatched within ten working days.

Well, it has been a worrying few weeks and thank you for those who have enquired about the site. Thank you for your patience! I was almost resigned to the Jetex website being lost forever in Internet limbo. So many, many tha...
I really should update info on the availability of Rapiers more often as there still seems to be the 'fake news' out there that you can't get them!
Well, we still have stocks of L-2 and L-1 motors of good performance. The current L-2LT m...
We make two types of 'part kits for home construction: reproductions ('repro') of 'vintage' or; 'classic' Jetex models originally produced by Veron, Keil Kraft and others in the 1950-1960 period, and original profile scale models like the Saab Viggen and Super Sabre.
Vintage Jetex models appear on eBay from time to time, but they are often damaged and can be ruinously expensive. These 'Repro' kits are produced from digital scans of vintage 50-year old kits. These are corrected for missing parts, scratches are removed they are restored, as far as possible, to the original colour. For the original Jetex.org kits, templates suitable for transfer to balsa sheet are produced from 3-views and photographs.
The templates are then transferred to balsa sheet. The 'part kits' consist of printed templates on quality balsa in the original colours, and can be sized on request to order to suit a variety of Rapier motors. These models make an excellent introduction to 'rocket' flying
Kits are produced to order at £15.00 plus £2-50 p&p and dispatched within 10 days.
