KK AVRO 707A
The Avro 707A was a British experimental, delta-winged aircraft- fore-runner to the iconic Vulcan bomber. The 707A was the third aircraft in the 707 series, built for high-speed testing.
After the end of the Vulcan testing stage , 4 Avro 707's continued to be used as research aircraft in their individual bright blue, red, silver and orange colour schemes.
An AVRO 707A was on view at the Manchester Museum of Science and Technology in 1985. (Click here for image)

This KK Avro 707A model aircraft kit is made to order in the UK using top quality materials and precision laser-cutting.
This model was originally designed for use with a Jetex 50 engine but the TSP L2 rocket motor is a suitable alternative. Jetex engines were designed for model aircraft by Joseph Mansour and brothers John and Charles Wilmot. To find out more about Jetex engines, follow this link: Jetex engines .
Further pictures of the model and hints on covering it can be found here: RCGroups forum.

Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.
For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.
Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.
Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.
For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.
A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.
The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.
For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.
These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.
For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!
This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.
