Hello,
A new plane added to my collection.
A Hurricane from Keil Kraft.

What is remarkable is that neither the antenna nor the guns are broken. This is rare.
The box, especially the lid, was in very bad shape and needed some repairs. But at least I had them. Which is a real chance.
I am not familiar with this Keil Kraft brand, do you have any information?
Thanks

Keil Kraft were British and I think this model was their only foray into plastic RTF models. I may be wrong, but their balsa kits were extremely common, particularly around the Commonwealth countries. They were cetainly more common here in AUS than the American Guillows or Scientific etc.
The engine in the Hurricane will be a Wen Mac, or possibly a licensed British made Keil Kraft version of a Wen Mac.

Nice airplane , the hurricane was one of the unsung hero’s of WWII. It actually shot down more German airplanes then the Spitfire .
