KK JOKER 150% SCALE
The Joker 150% is an enlarged version of the very attractive and pretty Keil Kraft Joker.
Re-designed by Pete Sanders and drawn by Kevin McGhee, the Joker 150 is a 29 inch (737mm) wingspan, vintage control line stunt model for a very wide range of popular diesel or glow-plug motors of around 1.5cc (.09 cu.in.) capacity, taking most makes of vintage or modern engines.
Note: Some glow-plug motors have slightly wider crank case assemblies and the gap between the engine bearers will have to be somewhat widened to fit. Some strengthening modifications have been made from the original design, largely around the engine bearer assembly, to take into account the much more powerful motors to be used. Apart from that, everything else is much the same, just thicker balsa wood. The construction is very straightforward and well within the capability of most builders.
This is the same Joker 150 kit that featured in the BMFA News.

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.
