WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHORT AND FULL KITS?
This is a question we get asked a lot.
A short kit consists of a printed plan, the precision laser cut parts and in most cases, if a canopy is needed, it will be included too.
A full kit (unless stated otherwise) will include all that you need to build a kit (minus any tools and glue).
If it is rubber powered, a rubber motor and propellor will be supplied.
If the kit is designed either for RC or electric/diesel/petrol power, we do not supply the motor, prop or any RC gear.
WHY DOES IT TAKE UP TO 14 DAYS TO GET MY KIT?
All of our vintage replica kits are built to order.
We have such a large range of kits available, it would be uneconomical for us to keep every model in stock.
All kits are precision laser-cut in our workshop and tend to be processed in batches so, depending on when your order comes in, you may get your kit within a few days or a couple of weeks.
HOW MUCH IS THE VINTAGE KIT I HAVE JUST FOUND IN MY LOFT WORTH AND WILL YOU BUY IT?
We are often asked to value or buy vintage kits found in lofts or at car boot sales.
The best advice if you come across an old kit is to list it on eBay and let the market decide what it is worth.
Some rare KeilKraft kits such as The Scout may sell for £300-400, whereas some of the more popular kits may only fetch £10 or so. It's worth keeping an eye on eBay for what's selling and for how much.
We do not buy vintage kits - we make replicas of them!
