Ben Buckle Vintage Classic Buccaneer Standard KitThe 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.
