About this Plan

Keil Kraft Junior 60. Free flight gas powered sport model. 5 ft span for engines of 5-7cc. Weight approx 3-4 lbs.

A classic design. The Junior 60 was an enormously popular and successful free flight model in the UK, and as such was often also used as a first R/C sport and trainer model.

Quote: "The Junior 60 is a 60 inch span free flight model of simple and rugged design. It is also Britain's most popular model for radio control."

The original KK kit dates from 1946. There is also a later revised 1955 Junior 60 (oz1398) plan available, with a wider body for easier RC installation.

This plan bears the legend: "Plan from Derick Scott".

This plan is stamped as Archive #003676 from the Cooperative Plans Service. See their website at www.co-op-plans.com

Note the actual wingspan of the Junior 60 is (rather confusingly) 63 inches. For reasons unknown, Keil Kraft continually referred to it and advertised it as being 60 inches in wingspan. Many thanks to Brian Cox for help with this.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
