The KK Skystreak 26 is one of the longest selling, all time classic control line stunters, featuring "Knock Off", banded on wing (optional), for 0.75 - 1cc (.049 - .06cu.in) diesel and glow-plug motors.

Very lightweight, traditional, straightforward construction, with unusual, but attractive, swept-back wing.

An exciting stunter, but also exceptionally stable, particularly in inverted flight.

All parts are precision laser-cut, for accurate construction.

A great first stunt control line model.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Skystreak 26.

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.

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


Full-sized plotted plans
Balsa wood and ply sheets with precision laser-cut parts
Balsa stripwood
Engine bearers and balsa sheeting
Vacuum-formed canopy
Piano Wire for undercarriage and lead outs
Bellcrank assembly
Mylar hinges

Please note: Model pictured expertly built by Pete Sanders features engine, fuel tank, fuel lines, propeller, spinner, markings and coloured covering not included in the kit.

Pete Sanders makes the following comments that may help with your build:

If a modern PAW .049 or .06 is used, the engine bearers will have to be set slightly closer together, from 23 mm to 21 mm as the crank case is narrower than vintage diesels. 2 mm will have to be pared off the top engine bearer to accommodate the fuel tank in it's proper position in the tank bay only. The gap on the top and bottom of the beech bearers, can be filled with a strip of scrap balsa.

The tail plane and elevator can be made from 2.5mm sheet balsa (3/32") to prevent it warping and it is stronger.
The ply bellcrank and elevator horn should be given a thin coat of epoxy to stiffen and strengthen them.
The Skystreak 26 is a lovely model to build, with lots of traditional, vintage construction features.
I seem to remember that the Keil Kraft kit I built had to be modified to get the canopy to fit.
All I did was raise the sides of the cockpit by 5 mm, using a piece of 5 mm x 1.5mm scrap balsa and it would be best to run the front planking a bit further into the cockpit, say 3mm, then the canopy fits just fine. It shouldn't take much time to adjust the plan to aid the builder.
