Ben Buckle Vintage

Ben Buckle kits are mostly machine cut kits. There are a few kits in the line that are print wood and I think Colin Buckle preserves those for historic reasons as they were originally manufactured back in the day. However, almost all the kits we stock from Ben Buckle are machine cut. You can safely presume they are machine cut unless we specify "Print Wood Kit" in the description. We know you'll really enjoy builiding these classic designs. They come from the era of radio, record players and flat head V8's. Hey, I'm not trying to make you feel old. ;-) Dave

Ben Buckle Vintage Trainer Super 60 Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image

Ben Buckle Vintage Trainer Super 60 Kit

This is the all time classic trainer. Many thousands of R/C pilots had their first tentative flights with a Super 60 and in the midst of the bewildering number of 'trainers' that are available today the good old Super 60 is still going strong and is a far better model to build and fly than the 'horrible plastic clip together stuff" that promises much but delivers so little.

If you take the time to build your own model then the satisfaction gained from flying it is far greater than that of a so called 'ready to fly' model.

In England, the Super 60 is easily recognized down at the flying field and many R/C instructors will be only too happy to give you some lessons on it as they will be familiar with it and you will soon find yourself doing your own take off's and landings with no problems. And even if the model does get pranged then it can be mended because it is made from balsa and ply which can be glued and repaired.

The Ben Buckle Super 60.....often imitated...never equalled!

Specifications:

Span: 63" (1600 mm)

Recommendations:

Engine Size: .25 - .35 2 Stroke or .25 - .35 4 Stroke
Radio: 3 Channel

Ben Buckle Vintage Trainer Mini Super Kit

If the Super 60 is too big for you, try the Mini Super which is about 3/4 the size. It has a tricycle undercarriage for easy take off and is ideally suited to engines .10 - .15 size, glow or diesel. The fuselage is proportionately wider than its bigger brother so that radio accommodation is simple.

A great fun little model and inexpensive to get in the air!

Ben Buckle Vintage Classic Buccaneer Standard Kit - Product Image
Click for larger image

Ben Buckle Vintage Classic Buccaneer Standard Kit

The Buccaneer Standard is another of Ben Buckle's early kits and the model itself was one of Ben's favorites.

Ben had a free flight Buccaneer Std way back in the early 1970's, Colin Buckle can remember he and the two Ayres brothers chasing off after it at the Nats. at Little Rissington...."Ahhh my lost youth! Happy days indeed. Later on the Buccaneer was converted to single channel radio using a set that dad made himself with the TX mounted in a home made case which he cut out and soldered from a biscuit tin!"

The model shown in the picture is Mike Whittard's Buccaneer which has been flying for many years and has had several different IC engines but has now been converted to electric power.

The Buccaneer Standard is a Bill Effinger design from 1937 and has stood the test of time very well.

Span: 66" (1676 mm)
