Item specifics

Power Source: Nitro Vehicle Type: Aeroplanes
Assembly Required?: Assembly Req. Condition: New
Brand: Ben Buckle

The Elf Biplane is an enlarged version of the original 39 inch Elf Biplane designed by Frank Ehling. This version was designed my Mike Whittard and Colin Buckle. The Elf Biplane was also a great favourite of two of our long standing modelling freinds Jim Dyson and Brian Roe from Cheshire. Jim has since flown off but Brian still loves his model flying and often pops up un announced at one of the model do's, usually with some scheme under his hat for a new model project. We publish in plan form only, a larger version of this model called the 'Super Elf' and it is a 78 inch version which Jim, Brian and my dad (Ben) developed together. 

The Elf Biplane kit contains all the materials and parts needed to build the basic airframe of the model and includes pre cut wing ribs, tip shapes, balsa and ply formers, balsa strip, sheet and block parts, undercarriage wire, hardwoods, a fully detailed plan, glazing and hardware bag. 

Click on the small picture of the kit to see the contents in more detail.

The Elf Biplane is a 60 inch wingspan model that is usually flown with a .30 to .40 size glow motor and 3 channel radio control. This model can be converted to electric power but details are not shown on the plan.

PLEASE NOTE!! Further items will be needed to finish the model. Building this model requires patience and takes time and requires the use of small hand tools and adhesives etc. If you have any doubts about its suitability for you or for its intended user please contact us for advice before buying. We will be quite happy to help you!  This model is NOT ready to fly!
