Product Details


The KK Spectre was Keil Kraft's top of the range control line stunter for 2.5 - 3.5cc (.15 - .20cu.in) diesel and glow-plug motors, designed by aero-modelling design genius, Dave Platt.

Has all the "modern" 1950's design features, such as asymmetric wing, coupled flaps and elevators, inverted engine, vacuum formed plastic cowling and outboard tip weight.

Beautiful stunt performance at an unhurried pace and capable of doing "The Book", in the hands of an expert stunt pilot, yet forgiving to the less experienced.

All parts are precision laser-cut, for accurate construction, which is surprisingly straightforward.

An exceptionally attractive model in classic 1930's racing style.


Plotted plans
13 sheets of precision laser-cut parts
Vacuum formed upper and lower cowl

Thank you to David Prothero for providing his picture of the fabulous red and yellow Spectre.

Thank you also to Allan Patrick and his intrepid Rabbit pilot. Covering on Allan's plane is tissue applied wet and doped onto 28 micron matte laminating film. Colour is mostly natural, brown is water based walnut wood stain. Engine is a PAW 19. The Rabbit, engine and specialised covering material  are not included in the kit.



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.


Smaller items

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.

Larger items

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.
