|Keil Kraft Ajax Kit Ref: KKK015|
Designed around the S.M.A.E fuselage competition formula by Louis A Heath in 1939, he could not have foreseen how popular the Ajax would become and the reputation it would acquire. It established the standard for free flight construction for hundreds of designs to come. This achievement is certainly reflected in the approximately one million AJAX kits sold since its introduction to the Keil Kraft range in 1946. This model is true to the Albert Hatfull redeveloped kit from 1946 but redrawn in CAD to allow for accurate part fitment and laser cutting to bring this iconic design to a new audience.
Laser cut parts
Re-drawn and re-engineered using CAD
Propeller and rubber motor supplied in the kit
White tissue supplied as a blank canvas for a design of your choice
