I have a 450 watt electric motor and esc that needs an airframe wrapping round it......

Any suggestions for a suitable vintage style airframe --- plan or kit?

Ideally I'm looking for something big and slow that doesn't involve too much metal bashing/soldering when it comes to the undercarriage.

How about one of the sub 63" barnstormers in fact the 63 if built light should be fine on a 450w set up

I certainly found the Ben Buckle kits I built very trying..........

I could never honestly recommend the Junior 60. I think it's an awful model. The Super 60 is a far superior airframe.
