KK Supermarine Attacker
The Supermarine Attacker was a single seat jet fighter used by the Royal Navy coming into service in 1951 with the Fleet Air Arm.
Power was provided by a Rolls Royce Nene and such was the rate of technological advancement at the time, the Attacker was replaced after just 3 years in service.
Model manufacturers Keil Kraft and Veron produced a number of "jet age" models based on the many jet fighters produced for airforces around the world in the 40s, 50s, 60, and 70s.
This kit was originally designed to take the Jetex 50 motor - the TSP L2 rocket motor would be a suitable alternative.
The model in the photograph was built by Howard Metcalfe.

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.
