CENTURION

Inspired by the Keil Kraft Senator, the rubber-powered, free-flight Centurion is a modern take on a timeless classic.

Designer Peter Sanders has taken all of the best bits of the Senator and tweaked them to create a traditional "stick & tissue" model that flies beautifully under rubber power and then glides superbly at the end of the power run.

The 31.2 inch (818mm) wingspan makes the kit an easy fit on your workbench or kitchen table and the detachable wing makes it a doddle to transport to the flying field.

Supplied with a 9.5" plastic free-wheeling prop and a distinctive single-wheeled undercart that harks back to its Senator inspiration, the Centurion looks so fabulously "retro" in the air.

What isn't retro is the fact that the model has been designed using the latest CAD software with laser cut parts giving accurate, tight-fitting joints and perfectly identical wing and tail ribs. In addition, rather than you having to carve a nose from a single balsa block, this kit is supplied with a series of laser cut balsa laminations that simply glue together and sand down to form a much more accurate nose block.

As usual with our full kits, everything you need for the model is in the box, including copious FAI tan flight rubber, red and yellow coloured domestic tissue, all stripwood and acetate for the cabin. We've even thrown in a bottle of our Easy Sand wood glue!
