What's It all About ???

This page is all about the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft. It's a highly diversified hobby that takes in as many skills as you like to use. Everything from electronics to carpentry, to painting, to drawing and designing with a little bit of metal work thrown in. Some builders even go into doing their own machining, pattern designing, fibre glassing, moulding and engine design. You can use electric motors, 2 stroke or 4 stroke internal combustion engines or even minature turbine (jet) engines for power. My own models use 2 and 4 stroke internal combustion engines and range in size from about a metre in wingspan to well over 3 metres from tip to tip!

Help Needed.

I walked into the local Hobby Shop the other day to buy some supplies and there hanging from the roof was a vintage model aircraft - well - a new vintage model aircraft and of course I fell in love with it - I'm sure you understand - there are somethings you just HAVE to buy!

Any way - the logo on the fin says KEILCRAFT - yep - now you understand don't you? The model was fitted with a (choke) electric can motor but I forgave it that indiscretion and I will fit a proper IC engine to it.

My problem is I can't identify it! 60 inch wingspan and it does look like a typical Keilcraft model but - I don't know what it is. So dear reader - can someone please put me out of my misery and tell me what it is PLEASE. Photos attached.

OK Folks - thank you - it seems what I have is definately a Keilcraft Junior 60.  Nice model and built very lightly so I'm fitting a 30 4 stroke to see how it goes.
