A Balsa USA kit is an airplane model kit. Balsa makes model kits for vintage-style airplanes, both military and recreational. The company also makes kits for models of machine guns and bombs. The models come in 1/3-scale, 1/4-scale and 1/6-scale sizes.
In 1968 Ron Busch purchased Joy Products and renamed it Balsa USA with the purpose of focusing on R/C model kits, balsa, aircraft-grade plywood and specialty wood used by hobby enthusiasts.
Customers have the ability to purchase kits, accessories, wood and hobby glue, and tools from Balsa USA's website, BalsaUSA.com. The company also provides downloadable manuals for its kits.
