Default Ben Buckle vintage kits

Just like to catch anyone's thoughts on the above.Have just got one of his kits, the Junior 60 elec. version ,and wondered if anyone has built a similar plane ? I've read that perhaps the rudder needs enlarging a little to improve it's authority but are there any other tips ?Cheers guys, Pete.

Hi,
No, you're the only reply so far......bit disappointing but expected as these kits seem to be a niche modelling set. I'm on the back part of getting mine finished, well to bare bones stage anyway. Certainly a trip down memory lane for me as I built the Junior 60 over 45 years ago but that one had a smelly noisy thing up front to turn the prop. It was , however, a very good flyer as I recall and cemented my love of building planes to this day.
Rgds, Pete.
