The Most Useful Item at the Flying Field
Take your tools and accessories with you and keep them together in one place with the Jumbo Field Box from the Vintage Model Company. This sturdy 6mm ply wood box is a reliable way of transporting tools, batteries, fuel or whatever else you need to the flying field.
Supplied as a flat-packed kit you can assemble in mere minutes, rather than hours, with precision laser cut plywood parts.
You can paint or stain the box and give it your own look. This kit really lends itself to customisation.
In the top of the box there are two compartments for easy to reach tools and accessories you might need to get at in between flights.
At the top of the box are some removable padded arms that make up the model cradle. This cradle is perfect for resting medium sized RC planes like those in the Balsa Basics range. If you need to fit a larger aircraft with a wider fuselage, the arms are adjustable thanks to the easy to turn wing nuts.
All of the hardware, such as the nuts and bolts, are included in the kit along with the cradle padding.
There is space for fuel on one side of the box. If gas powered models are not your thing, you can carry your batteries here or find another purpose for this space! It's really up to you.
On this side of the box, there is space for a power panel for starting nitro engines.
The solid 20mm hardwood handle provides a strong feel to the box. Once you've started using a field box, you'll realise why they've always been so popular! It's a mobile workshop that you can carry anywhere.

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.
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.
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.
