The KK Elf is a very pretty, small rubber-powered cabin duration model, with traditional, simple, built-up construction and would make a very good first flying model.

Fine flying performance and can easily be converted by the more experienced to take lightweight electric motor and 3 channel R/C equipment for indoor or calm outdoor flying.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Elf.

Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin.

The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.

Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".

This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.


Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
One 150mm diameter plastic propeller.
One pre-bent motor hook and shaft.
One low friction plastic nose bushing for the propeller
Pair of 22mm plastic wheels.
Acetate sheet for canopy.
Piano wire for the main undercarriage.
One motor peg.
F.A.I. 3/16" rubber motor strip.
Tissue to cover the model.
Full size printed plan with instructions.

Great Kit but not for the impatient!
Wednesday, 29 May 2019  | 

This is a great kit,that I had a lot of fun building it.It's got a simple but nice looking design that really lends its self to bright esaki tissue.And it flys well straight out of the box. Wouldnt say its a great first time build tho as its lightweight frame can be a bit fiddly to construct at times,its definitely not a kit for the impatient . I Would recommend this for those moving away from warbirds looking for a solid flyer with that retro look.One slight niggle i have with the kit though is that the landing gear is just a few mm too short to allow for a runway take off,of course, I should have double checked this before glueing them in place. But you live and learn!


Thanks for the great review Andrew.
Interesting point you make about the undercarriage - I guess this model was not designed to R.O.G. originally!
