The Veron Vortex was a beautiful classic, high performance "A2" contest glider, in the same class as the KK Chief.

First published in Aeromodeller in 1952, the Vortex does not qualify for "Vintage" competition but is valid for "Classic" events.

Not a beginners model, but would be a super project for the experienced free flight modeller.

Our replica kit features top quality laser cut parts to aid accurate, speedy building. In common with all Veron models, a superb flyer.

Can be modified to take radio control equipment and electric power, for relaxing gliding.

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.


Dante Pertusini

A really lovely kit with nicely cut parts, probably for the more experienced builder. Can be modified for 2 channel RC with a little Imagination. A great flyer too.
