30" KK Pacer
The KK Conquest is a most attractive tow line glider, with beautiful, eye catching lines. Features simple built up construction, making it an ideal first flying model.
Our replica kit includes top quality laser cut parts, for accurate speedy building. Highly recommended. This model can easily be modified by the more experienced modeler to take a lightweight electric motor and 3 channel R/C, for relaxing summer evening gliding Can be flown in the new "36" class lightweight bungee launch competition.
Having built a good number of these lovely little models from the original Keil Kraft kits, it was a great experience to have another one on the building board. The plan comes with a comment that the kit is based on the original hand drawn plan and the original sized parts (which were die-cut). This does result in a little trimming of some of the parts to get a perfect fit as you would expect, but generally the model went together very quickly & easily. The balsa selection is excellent, with nice straight hard wing spar, but slightly softer leading edge to assist the final sanding. Any one who has built a couple of models from the old style kits will find no problems building this. The quality of the laser cutting is superb. Many thanks for a great kit and a nice trip down memory lane!
Looks like this model missed quality control laser cuts were of wrong size matching up with wrong size balsa spars as described in the plan . Took a lot of alterations to complete the model with no diagram /basic instructions or photo of the Glider .
I have built several vintage kits although still a beginner . The conquest kit was probably not one of the best I have built there were several discrepancies in size of balsa and plan discription and took a fair amount sanding and alterations . The kit could do with a description or plan of sequences or at least a photograph. The lazer cutouts took a lot of alterations to get anywhere like a good fit . Advice for any newbies you will need plenty of sandpaper and small files .
