About Keil Kraft
Started in the late 1940s, the Keil Kraft brand quickly became one of the most iconic names in model manufacturing introducing a whole generation into the hobby of model making. Keil Kraft was relaunched in 2018 with each design carefully re-drawn in CAD with laser cut components for a quick build and a precision fit.
Designed by Bill Dean, the Keil Kraft Gipsy is the biggest model in the Keil Kraft duration range thanks to the massive 40” wingspan! This impressively large model is no more tricky to build than the other models in the range thanks to the use of similar construction techniques throughout.
The bigger size produces a model that is better at coping with wind compared to other smaller models and the size also suits conversion to lightweight R/C equipment and electric power.
