ABOUT US

Why choose a kit from Simulation Kit Supplies?

With additive manufacturing (aka 3D Printing) it is now possible to create products at home to a quality that comes close to professional manufacturing – whether you want a flight stick or a wood turning lathe. Unless you are an amateur engineer though you’re likely to have no end of trouble and expense sourcing all the springs, bearings, sensors and more to just the right specification.

Our goal?

“to provide exactly what you need, to exactly the right specification in one easy kit that costs you less than if you bought the parts separately”

You can rely on our kits
The exact specifications validated with the designer
Quality Control – we check each new batch of stock
Everything you need including useful tools
Includes spares
Tested! We know these parts will fit and are fit for purpose
Strong safe packaging to ensure it arrives safe and sound
3d Printed parts not included – we’re thinking about it as an option though. Let us know if you’re interested

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have a 3D printer.
I guess your kit is no use to me?

Not at all. Please see this section on authentikit.org for your options here.

What else do I need apart from your kit?

Well you need the 3D printed parts. You may also need a mounting system/rig depending on what kit you are buying. The Spitfire Kits use a 2 arm monitor stand as a rig to on which to mount the flight stick and other parts.

Can you supply monitor stand mounting systems?

If there is demand then yes we intend to. Drop us a line if you’re interested.

Where do you ship to and how long will it take?

Based in the UK but will ship world wide. You need to be prepared for a possible customs charge if you are overseas. I use Royal Mail Standard International for overseas. Please bear with me in these early days if I can’t get it in the post same day. There are a lot of parts to this kit and organising suppliers is proving complex so sometimes its 2-3 days before I can send it out to you. Please drop me a line if delivery time is critical for you.
