If i could give it zero stars, I would. I ordered a kit on 12/18/18 with a confirmation that my estimated delivery would be 1/10/19. Jan 10th came around and I still had no kit. When questioned about my order status, the company responded that it would ship in the next 2 weeks and be delivered by 1/21/19. Currently, still no fulfillment of the kit and the delivery date has, yet again, changed! Now tentatively the kit might be delivered on 2/07/19 almost 2 months after the order was put in...... Poor communication from the company about the delays.Overall, a very disappointing experience. Save yourself the headache and head to a hobby store to buy the supplies.

Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately the largest balsa wood supplier nationally had a massive fire and lost all stock. This source is the main source for all craft, hobbyist and science suppliers in the nation. It was a huge loss for all. We have been working day in and day out to find alternate sources from other countries and have yet to find a source for the item that is missing. The Science Olympiad organization is aware of this issue and our customer service and technical support teams are as well. We are working to educate our customers as quickly as possible on this matter and are working diligently to find a new source of product. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Please bear with us during these trials and tribulations.
