"Most" modern kits have laser cut parts. I've never seen a Dumas that didn't have most of the pieces cut. BUT................ I've never built the ones you mentioned, so I don't know about those specifically.
They make decent static kits, depending on just how much detail your looking for. Some have decals for markings, if appropriate. If your a detail nut, then I hope your also good a doing some scratch building because most likely you'll want to add detail that is not typically not found in the less expensive kits of this type.
I find that most wooden(balsa) models of this type are best when your trying to recreate an aircraft, boat......whatever, that was actually built using the same construction methods that Balsa kits use. Like the older bi-planes and many of the earlier private aircraft (i.e. Piper Cub for example). Those planes were built in the same fashion, full scale of course, that their model counterparts are built.
If you've never built any wooden structure kits, expect some time spent in learning how to best approach them. If brand new, virgin, never built one at all, I would suggest that you get something your not all that excited about and build it as a learning experience. If it comes out well great, if not, you'll have learned something and not be totally bummed out that you trashed a model that you really wanted to build.
The covering is what usually freaks out most beginners, another good reason to work on some "practice" models before you tackle that "I've always wanted to build a model of _________". Of course you can always substitute your covering material for something else, as long as it works for the part your covering.
Wood models are a different animal than plastic. Depending on what you expect and how good you are at scratch building you may or may not find them all that much fun. I've built some of the "really Old" models that just have what is called "Print wood". The shape of the pieces is printed onto the wood, but it's up to you to x-acto each and every little part out of the sheet. You really get to know the specifics of a design when you build one of those.
Good luck, and give it a try. You'll learn building methods that can always be applied to plastic modeling.
